"The Inside Story" takes a deeper look into technology news by interviewing the people behind the story. We talk to the sources involved in the news and explore important and interesting issues.
David Kasik is a computer graphics expert who is a senior technical fellow in visualization and interactive techniques with Boeing. His research explores new ways to visualize large amounts of geometric and nongeometric data.
Kasik has been involved with computer graphics since 1969, via work in a scientific laboratory, an automotive business, and an aerospace company. This has given him a different perspective on the technology than that found in the arts and entertainment industries, which so heavily influence the field today.
He has written on the history of computer-graphics advances and where the technology is headed today. He says the field is currently at an innovation plateau but is ready for the next wave of innovation.
