Peter Lablans

Peter Lablans is a prolific inventor and founder of Ternarylogic LLC and is the named inventor on over 50 patents. He is an Electronic Engineer trained by Dr. Gerrit “Gerry” Blaauw, one of the three co-architects of the legendary IBM System/360 and who taught him to model digital machines in APL and the hard reality that despite the mathematical modeling a computer is not an abstract idea. Peter also works as a patent engineer in patent prosecution. His stake in the discussion is to advocate a fair, modern and affordable patent system that encourages all inventors, including independent inventors, to obtain and assert patents.
