Papers belonging to American engineer A. Michael Noll.
A. Michael Noll is an American engineer born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1939. He has a B.S.E.E. from the Newark College of Engineering, an M.E.E. from New York University, and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. Currently, he is professor emeritus at the Annenberg School for Communications at the University of Southern California. Noll is an early pioneer in digital and 3D art and proposed that the digital computer could be a creative artistic medium. He worked at Bell Labs in New Jersey studying three-dimensional computer graphics and animation as well as human-machine communication and speech signal processing and became one of the first researchers to use a computer to create artistic patterns. In 1965, his work was exhibited at the Howard Wise Gallery in New York City and was ultimately used in many articles and books. Noll has published over ninety professional papers, was granted six patents, and is the author of ten books. He contributes regularly to newspapers and magazines.
