In the ever-evolving landscape of engineering, the traditional methods of documenting and disseminating knowledge face challenges in keeping pace with technological advancements. This presentation advocates for a paradigm shift in the way engineering knowledge is captured and communicated, proposing the codification of such knowledge through a programming language designed for both human comprehension and machine processing.

The core argument of this presentation centres on the imperative need to digitize the creation, storage, and processing of engineering knowledge. Unlike conventional written documentation, the proposal advocates for expressing engineering insights in the form of computer code. This code, while executable by software tools, should be simultaneously designed to be intuitive and easily comprehensible by human engineers.

The benefits of this approach extend beyond mere efficiency gains in data processing; it promises a transformative impact on collaboration, innovation, and knowledge transfer within and across engineering disciplines. By seamlessly integrating the perspectives of both human engineers and machine processing capabilities, this methodology seeks to enhance the synergy between creativity and computation.

To bring this concept into fruition, the presentation concludes with the introduction of a specialized programming language and interpreter tailored to implement these ideas effectively. This proposed language aims to strike a delicate balance, ensuring that the code is not only machine-readable but also human-readable, fostering a collaborative environment where engineers can seamlessly interact with and contribute to the digital repository of engineering knowledge.


Food and networking for those attending in person will be between 4 pm and 4.30 pm (AWST)

The presentation and webcast will be at 4.30 pm - 5.30 pm (AWST).
