  • SIGGRAPH 1992

    Walter Gish is Executive Scientist at Terabit Computer Engineering where he is responsible for the architectural design of advanced visual systems. He received his BS (with Honors) and MS degrees in Physics and Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology. As much fun as getting a Ph.D. in high energy physics is, he managed to tear himself away to join a rock ‘n’ roll band. He’s never been the same since…

    He has twenty years experience in signal processing and scientific programming. He wrote an interactive, window based DSP package running on an IDI display in 1977. This convinced him that graphics were fun but FORTRAN was not. He wrote software to create fractal rocks, mountains, and asteroids at Digital Productions for the movie “The Last Starfighter” (still in FORTRAN). He has eight years experience in graphics hardware, including a stint as Chief Technical Officer for Interactive Machines (no more FORTRAN). Walter is a member of the ACM, IEEE, Audio Engineering Society, Computer Music Association, and the Ventura Surf Club.
