Presented by

Rishi Lukka - National Instruments


The term "scientific computing," or "computational science", has been used for many years to define the use of computers (software and hardware) for solving problems related to science and engineering, usually involving experimental or applied research, modeling, and simulation. In a simplistic definition, it refers to the use of computers in solving scientific problems. Scientific computing applications usually follow a three-step process: data acquisition, data analysis, and data visualization/presentation. This three-step approach has been one of the pillars of the NI virtual instrumentation model since its original conceptualization in the early 80s, and has been expanded into a more comprehensive model known as graphical system design. In this new model, the focus is to accelerate the research and development cycle, delivering mathematical models to embedded real-time computers faster and easier. This design-flow acceleration is achieved by using NI LabVIEW software and its G programming language as a common system-level design tool for all the different phases in the design-to-deployment flow.

Presenter's Biography

Rishi Lukka joined National Instruments after graduating from the University of Waterloo with a bachelor's degree in applied science in systems design engineering with a specialty in control systems. He began his career in the NI Engineering Leadership Program as an applications engineer, where he gained experience with many NI hardware and software tools. In particular, focusing on projects for data acquisition, machine vision, motion, modular instrumentation, LabVIEW Real-Time, LabVIEW FPGA, and more.
