Talk Topic: Dataflow Machines and Frickin' Laser Beams
Paul Clark is a software developer and product creator with 30 years in software industry, 20 at Board level. He is a CEO of Packet Ship Technologies, a software company providing technology components for management, distribution and playback of broadcast-quality digital media.
Paul is also a founding partner and director of Greenwave Laser, the only professional laser display service in Cornwall, helping individuals and organisations capture the magic of lasers for their special occasion and engaging and entertaining audiences with a truly memorable experience. Early in his career, Paul wrote the code and operated lasers for displays in Covent Garden and continues to write code today that drives his new laser innovations.
In a joint talk with Antonia Coppen, Paul will explore the concept of a 'dataflow machine' which enables designers to create complex, powerful systems by plugging together simple modules in a graphical user interface, without writing any code. They will show how Greenwave Laser is using Packet Ship's technology to create innovative laser-based experiences, and how the same concepts can be used in audio, data analysis, IoT - and, most excitingly, combining multiple disciplines. The audience will gain an insight into the benefits of creative / technical partnerships, an understanding of the basics of dataflow architecture and an inspiration on ways of using these techniques in their own specialism.
