Revolutionary new technology from Evolving Logic

Evolving Logic's strength derives from the converging expertise, interests and backgrounds of its three divergent principals.

Steven C. Bankes, PhD, a visionary Computer Scientist, is the inventor of the technology for exploratory modeling, Evolving Logic's unique approach to robust decision-making. >| more

Robert J. Lempert, PhD is a Physicist with an additional degree in political science. His experience and interest in the proper application of mathematical models to social and decision-making problems has been vital to the design and implementation of our Robust Adaptive Planning™ (RAP™) methods. >| more

Steven W. Popper, PhD, an Economist also trained in the physical sciences, draws upon his scholarly and practical experience to help bridge the gap between advanced computer and analytic theory and direct application to the problems confronted by management teams in business and elsewhere. >| more

Steven C. Bankes is the Chief Technologist and inventor of exploratory modeling, which provides a basis for studying complex, adaptive, and incompletely understood systems through computational experiments. He is the designer of the Computer Assisted Reasoning system that provides the basis for Evolving Logic's technology and products. His work includes original research in complex systems, theory and technology for modeling and simulation, agent based modeling and artificial societies, and interactive decision support systems. Bankes was a Professor of Information Science and received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Colorado. He is a member of the board of directors for the Center for Computational Social Science and the Center for the Study of the Origin and Evolution of Life at UCLA.

Curriculum Vitae

Robert J. Lempert is the Chief Methodologist and an expert in the computer simulation of business, economic, and physical systems. As a Co-Founder, he has developed many of the methodological innovations for computer assisted reasoning that link scenario-based planning to traditional quantitative analysis. Lempert is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, a member of the National Academy of Science's Climate Research Committee, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has been a Professor of Policy Analysis at the RAND Graduate School, where he led studies on science and technology policy for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Department of Defense. He has conducted research using Computer Assisted Reasoning in a number of areas including science and technology portfolio management, long-range planning for higher education and climate change. Robert received his Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University and his B.A.S. in physics and political science from Stanford University.

Curriculum Vitae

Steven W. Popper was previously Associate Director of the Science and Technology Policy Institute (formerly the Critical Technologies Institute), and a Professor of Science and Technology Policy at the RAND Graduate School, a country account officer at Bank of America, a consultant to the World Bank and the OECD on issues of industrial restructuring, and a researcher in physical chemistry and enzymology. He has led and conducted studies of critical technology issues for the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and has published research on the economics of innovation, particularly on the complex subject of how organizations identify and incorporate technological change. He lived, worked, studied in, and wrote about Eastern Europe before the fall of the Iron Curtain. He has practical experience in fields as diverse as international finance, biochemistry, manufacturing and government. He received his Ph.D. in Economics from University of California, Berkeley, his B.S. (summa cum laude) in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota.
