What Autodesk knows about the world is pretty cool. Here we meet Brian Mathews, group CTO. He’s a nerd. Self described. But we spent a few hours looking around Autodesk’s Gallery, which is open to the public on Wednesdays in downtown San Francisco. If you’re interesting in visiting the Gallery, here’s more info on that: http://usa.autodesk.com/gallery/
The meat of the discussion here is that Brian runs the technology that helps people build things, like buildings. We talk about the coming Age of Context and what the trends are that will bring nearly everything we touch, drive, walk into, or use, to life.
Things like viral bacteria evolution. 3D printing. Big data and cloud computing, what he called, infinite computing, sensors, wearable computing, and many other trends are discussed.
If you are interested in the future of the world, this is a must watch.
