Gary Bickford

In his role as CTO of Integrated Space Analytics,Gary Bickford and his team are developing a "Big Data" web application using Semantic Web and Linked Data / RDF + SPARQL technologies, which will be the live interactive online version of the famous Integrated Space Plan.  This online research and visualization tool will be available for use by all everyone from kids in school and anyone interested in space, to those involved in development or research regarding humans in outer space, including Moon and Mars habitats, microgravity and extreme vacuum research and industrial applications and biological research and proof of habitability.  We are working on advanced visualization methods to make it easy for anyone to see how space development is done, and how the technologies and organizations can work together to make this happen.  I have been working at the 'bleeding edge' of computer systems and the high tech startup world for many years, including some work with aerospace companies.  But from my first encounter with space, watching Sputnik go over our house when I was very young, I have maintained an interest in space.  In 2013 I saw that a 'tipping point' was approaching where it might be possible for space development to become a commercial, private enterprise and outgrow the governmental paradigm, and joined with others to form Space Finance Group at the ISDC Conference in Washington DC rhat year.
