The digital economy is already perceived as the new norm, and virtual reality is fast becoming an integral part of our world and society. And the whole industry is already a digital spiral: design – manufacturing – operation – disposal. The whole life of the product is duplicated and monitored by the computer. And so not only in industry. Airplanes, cars and nuclear reactors, houses and cities, dresses and hairstyles are developed and modeled on computers. Machines and entire plants are controlled by computers. They control the life of products, telling people what and when to do with them. The best minds of mankind are discussing the threats that artificial intelligence brings to mankind and the problem, than to occupy people who only have to watch this feast of numbers and computers.
Dassault Systèmes – the world’s largest developer of engineering software, what is called CAD and PLM-systems. Those programs that just provide the development, manufacture and maintenance of a wide variety of products throughout their life. With Dassault Systèmes, many Russian companies, machine builders and not only cooperate. And this is the oldest of the “digital” companies – if one can say so about the company that produces the most modern and innovative products. A pioneer in this field.
It was specialists Dassault Systèmes developed software products, in the late 1980’s allowed Boeing for the first time in the world to develop and test the aircraft in the virtual space. On the part of Dassault Systèmes, this work was led by Bernard Sharles , now president and CEO of the company. It was he who initiated the company’s transition to the new platform 3DExperience, in which the technologies of digital design and modeling are supplemented by the perception on the part of consumers.
In recent years, Dassault Systèmes has gone beyond industrial design. Its specialists develop programs for architecture and construction, for geology, energy, retail and medicine. The project of “smart” Singapore, which is implemented on the basis of Dassault Systèmes software, became very famous. Even some designers use Dassault Systèmes programs to develop their fashion collections, although not everyone admits this.
The virtual model of a working heart, developed by experts of Dassault Systèmes, in which electrical impulses and contractions of muscle fibers are reproduced is fascinating. On this model, doctors will be able to diagnose and treat patients and even rehearse operations on the open heart.
At the end of October, Dassault Systèmes held another, already twelfth, 3Dexperience forum in Moscow, which gathered more than 600 clients, partners and industry experts from the largest aircraft, power, engineering, automotive, mining, shipbuilding and other industries. During the conference, we met with Bernard Charles to discuss the future of digitalized humanity. But they started with a personal question.
