Lindsay Peters is the Chief Technical Officer for Pacific Knowledge Systems. He an experience of 25 years in software management, formal analysis, algorithm development, software design, and implementation for large commercial and defense systems. Ten years ago, Lindsay and his team were the early adopters of Java, coupled with more rigorous design processes such as Design by Contract. He then helped transition the development team to the Extreme Programming model. Out of this exciting and successful experience grew the "Extreme Testing" approach. In the early 80's, Lindsay managed a software team that was one of the first to incorporate the newly discovered simulated annealing algorithm into a commercial application. This team solved a previously intractable real-world problem, which was the optimum assignment of radio frequencies to collocated mobile radios. Apart from software development and artificial intelligence systems, Lindsay has an interest in mathematical convexity, and has helped to progress the "Happy Ending" problem. He is also involved in politics, and in the last Australian Federal election he stood as the Greens candidate for the seat of Bennelong.
