Robert Adamson (software pioneer)

Robert G. Adamson III (born 19 October 1947, Salt Lake City, Utah) is an American software pioneer.

Adamson graduated in Computer Science from the University of Utah in 1971. In 1981, he founded Software Generation Technology Corp.[1] and wrote, one of the first fully interpretive languages for IBM mainframe computers. STG was sold to Pansophic Systems[2] and later acquired by Computer Associates where the product was renamed GENER/OL.[3]

Later he founded Nostradamus Inc. and wrote Instant Replay,Noblink and Hardrunner, both of which received PC Magazines Editors Choice Awards.

Adamson wrote CinemaForge.

Adamson is still involved in software development with his own software development company chaos based software system used to assist in the invention of advanced technologies. Development of the DTK software system is far too radical and expensive to attract serious investors at this time, so perhaps the concept remains for future generations to build, according to Adamson.
