The ideas that gave rise to CSP, occam and transputers originated in the UK around 1975; occam and the Inmos transputer were launched around 1985. Thousands of computer scientists and engineers learned about concurrency and parallel computing using the occam-transputer platform and the influence is evident in many current architectures and programming tools. I will reflect on the relevance of these ideas to-day – after 30 years – and talk about communicating processes and processors in the age of clouds, things and robots.
