General Systems Group
General Systems Group (GSG), is a systems architecture firm founded in 1975. GSG has far reaching roots in the Software, Personal Computer and Internet (Web) technologies.
For example, the firm through its founder was involved with the development of the Internet from its beginnings in the 70's. Some of the seminal work on the Arpanet and Internet protocols was done at Harvard in connection with theses supervised by our founder.
Our firm has expertise in the methods of architectural abstraction. Architectural abstraction was first developed in connection with the design & development of complex software systems (E.G. Operating Systems). We have shown that it is equally applicable to: classical or built environment architecture; biological systems EvoDevo; and most recently to Science's Paradigms".
Architectural abstraction is a technique for dealing with complexity while retaining (design) control of complex systems.
