Super-scope huge for NZ – expert

A leading software entrepreneur says New Zealand’s role in building the world’s largest radio telescope could lead to the country becoming a global hub for big data.

Nicolas Erdody’s Otago software company, Open Parallel, is helping build the brain of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) telescope, the global project which will ultimately reveal new information about the origins and history of the universe.

Next month, a conference in Auckland will host some of the world’s leading technologists, including the project’s computing head, British scientist Dr Tim Cornwell.

“One of the goals of the conference is to create awareness of the technologies employed and their potential applications for New Zealand industry and business,” he said.
