Science is Discovering

This is the first part in a three-part series about our themes at this year’s Science in the Age of Experience Conference. Stay tuned for our next post, Science is Material.  

Science is impacting every aspect of our lives, from personalized medicine to autonomous vehicles, to solar airplanes and more. Science is about learning, understanding and discovering. Digital technologies are transforming science into a dynamic experience that enables greater curiosity and creativity. The use of 3D models, augmented reality and virtual reality is enabling more people to experience the science at hand. New and enhanced multiscale and multiphysics simulation applications-combined with the ability to collaborate and cloud compute-  are ushering in a new age of scientific innovation and discovery.

By enabling scientists, designers and engineers to work together and share their ideas and results they will be able to improve eco-efficiency of cars, increase lifespans and sustain our world.  By creating and sharing scientific knowledge- digitally, they are able to avoid errors and waste while freeing up their time to be truly innovative.

Dr. Michael Robash, a 2017 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology, will give his unique perspective of the scientific discovery process at the 2018 Science in the Age of Experience Conference being held in Boston. Dr. Robash will highlight the discovery of the molecular mechanisms controlling the Circadian Rhythm, which we often refer to as our biological clock. He will share his perspective on the role of curiosity, skepticism, persistence, collaboration,and humanity in the pursuit of science and provide his view on how science will move ahead in both real and virtual worlds in the future.

To continue this dialogue on discovery through science, I encourage you to join me in Boston for the Science in the Age of Experience Conference. There are many activities to take part in, from the thought-provoking keynotes, to the Additive Manufacturing Symposium and Hackathon, to the more than 100 customer presentations. But don’t take my word for it, just follow this link to get the full agenda and registration information.

Feel free to leave your comments on this post about your aspirations for applying Science to Discovery.

I hope to see you in Boston!
