BOXARR CTO to speak at BCS EASG Conference

Updated: Jun 2, 2021

BOXARR CTO, Rob Smith PhD, has been invited to speak at the upcoming British Computer Society conference for the Enterprise Architecture Specialist Group (EASG) on 17th July 2017.

Rob's presentation will be on: Human Readable Complexity: Ideas and Approaches for Enabling "Big Systems"

Rob says, "It is clear that Stephen Hawking's statement about the 21st century is true: we are now in the era of complexity. This talk discusses how this century's early advances have mainly focused on helping computers "understand" complexity: from machine-readable modelling languages to the algorithms that infer relationships in "big data". However, these techniques don't necessarily facilitate human engineering of the intentional relationships that create the

"big systems" required in the plans, processes, artefacts and architectures of today. This talk discusses how computational power can be used differently: as a tool to facilitate natural human understanding in "big systems", and effectively cope with and even exploit complexity to enable innovation for the future."
