CS Seminar: Dave Kasik - Lessons Learned from Computing in Industry

Speaker: Dave Kasik (ex-Boeing)

Title:   Lessons Learned from Computing in Industry


Dave Kasik will give a talk on Lessons Learned from Computing in Industry. He has 35 years of trying to develop and implement advanced technology with Boeing. Dave will provide case studies of Boeing technical computing advances and trace their evolution. In addition, he will discuss how the relationship balancing the public sector (academia, government), non-computing companies, and computing companies has evolved. 

Brief Bio:

Dave Kasik was Boeing’s Senior Technical Fellow in visualization and interactive techniques until his 2016 retirement. He developed the first user interface management system to simplify application programming. His work with 3D graphics ranges from computer animation to device drivers to massive model visualization tools and techniques. He pioneered the use of visual analytics to help extract more business insight from complex non-geometric data.

Dave earned his Masters in Computer Science from the University of Colorado in 1972 and a Bachelor’s in Quantitative Studies from the Johns Hopkins University in 1970. He is an ACM Fellow and IEEE Senior Member. His professional activities include ACM, AIAA, and IEEE.
