In the Office of the CTO (OCTO), we tell stories about the future and make them come true. For technologists, science fiction is often a source of inspiration for innovation. For example, many believe that the cell phone was inspired by the communicator on Star Trek. With this in mind, here are some stories that are guiding our research efforts.
Autodesk has always been an automation company, and today more than ever that means helping people make more things, better things, with less; more and better in terms of increasing efficiency, performance, quality, and innovation; less in terms of time, resources, and negative impacts (e.g., social, environmental). Making these stories come true is part of that pursuit.
Autodesk makes software for people who make things. If you've ever driven a high-performance car, admired a towering skyscraper, used a smartphone, or watched a great film, chances are you've experienced what millions of Autodesk customers are doing with our software. Autodesk gives you the power to make anything. For more information visit autodesk.com or follow @autodesk. The research we conduct is one of the first steps in this process.
Storytelling is alive in the lab.
