Introduction by Richard Astbury
In this talk Tom will discuss some of the projects he’s worked on, and the impact they’ve had on us, along with some interesting thoughts and insight into how we can stop “just” being the techies handing code off to managers and become developers who give back to the world and have a positive impact on society as a whole.
Websites are often a great barometer for wider underlying issues, and by exploring common problems and root causes we can seek to spark fundamental change that can ultimately feed back into our longer-term success.
Oracle’s primary involvement is to extract, store and visualise the data from the 550 sensors on the Bloodhound vehicle on to Oracle’s cloud through automated deployment with the involvement of Kubernetes, as well as using Oracle Stream Analytics, Data Visualisation and IoT to stream the data in real time.
Rob will talk about the Julia programming language, scientific computing and the two-language problem, with examples from his work with Sonar data recorded onboard research vessels and ocean gliders.
