Open Source, Multicore, Parallel Programming and Next Generation Networks

On Friday 4 of September 2009 I did a presentation at a symposium at the University of Otago in Dunedin, New Zealand.

The topic was how the Open Source Model will be part of the solution for the problems of software parallelisation.

It was in a broader context of Telecommunications, Social Networks, Education and Next Generation Networks.

The local newspaper, Otago Daily Times presented a good summary of the full day event:

“End-users, mashups, Web 2.0, 3D internet, wearable point-of-view technologies, Next Generation Network (NGN) services, and multicore and parallel computing.”

“They were all words bandied about frequently at lectures yesterday during the 2009 Global Network Interconnectivity (GNI) Project Symposium at the University of Otago School of Business.”

“About 50 of New Zealand’s leading academics and industry leaders gathered to discuss present and future issues relating to convergence in the Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) and telecommunications arena.”

“Speakers included Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs researcher Dr Hakim Hacid, of France; Telecom New Zealand head of security Dr Malcolm Shore; realXtend Project community manager and lead architect Ryan McDougall; Erdödy Consultancy Ltd director Nicolás Erdödy; Harmonic chief technology officer Peter Chappell and several lecturers from the Universities of Otago and Canterbury.”
