Each fall, Gartner, a provider of independent research and advice to IT companies, releases their Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for the coming year.
In a series of 3 blog posts, we would like to add our perspective on this list for 2017. Together with our partners at Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, Altium, and Markforged, we want to let you know that we have solutions that target these trends. Thankfully, we have invested in these trends for a number of years already. Working together, we can empower your business with the power to innovate and succeed.
Trend #1: AI & Advanced Machine Learning
SolidWorks Xdesign, which is coming later in 2017, has a design optimization tool in which the computer offers design solutions. From a recent interview with Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks:
“The idea is to free up the imagination of the engineer. Xdesign will suggest geometry based on stress and strain optimization algorithms to create the best design. We envision the machine telling you that this part is optimized from a statistical point of view, and now you as the engineer have to turn it into an industrial part. An engineer would then verify the part through their manufacturing experience and training.”
