technocracy - Computer Definition
Governed by scientists and technical experts. The exact origin of technocracy is unknown but it was used by W. H. Smyth in an article in 1919. The term was popular in the 1930s because politicians were blamed for the Great Depression, and "technocrats" were thought to be a solution for government. See technologist.
