18838 Shannon           Discovered 1999 July 18 by L. Šarounová and P. Kušnirák at Ondřejov.
American scientist Claude Elwood Shannon (1916-2001) became the father of information science and a cofounder of cybernetics through his numerous fundamental contributions, including the epoch-making paper A Mathematical Theory of Communication (1948).
