The year 2020 marks a watershed moment for how we inhabit the world around us, interact with our surroundings, and plan for a brighter tomorrow while maintaining productivity in the present. The current crisis has raised pertinent questions like:
How can we create an energy-positive world? How can we control our health better in the future? How can virtual worlds change the way we experience emotions? How can we better navigate the future by understanding the past?
Research finds that there is a tectonic shift in our expectations from businesses, service providers, and policy-makers, determining a brand new way forward. For example, a healthy configuration is now the top priority for 69% of automotive consumers ahead of age-old basics like comfort and price. Speaking on the human impact of COVID-19, a recent WEF report highlights psychological stress, information overload, and access to public health essentials.
Dassault Systèmes is recognized as a catalyst and enabler of the industry renaissance, and in the context of today’s global transformation, we are focused on driving progressive change centered on human.
In our journey through the crisis and into the rebound, our ultimate purpose and primary resource are one and the same – the human being. Underscoring this, our flagship event for this year, 3DEXPERIENCE Forum India 2020, centers around the theme of “Experience is Human,” elaborating on our efforts on transitioning from mere tools, fragmented products, or things, towards progress, wellbeing, sustainability, or life.
“Experience is Human”: this big idea leads us to extend our focus from things to life
Dassault Systèmes has been at the forefront of representing and reimagining experiences since the early 1980s. Our ambition to harmonize product, nature, and life has been the central theme across the years, and in 2020, it finds new and more meaningful expression in the Virtual Twin Experience of Humans.
The Virtual Twin Experience is an intelligent way of representing the world, combining art, science, and technology to test and predict human experiences.
As we evolve from Things to Life, we will strengthen our leadership in Life Sciences, Manufacturing and Infrastructure sectors. The 3DEXPERIENCE Forum 2020 India will examine disruptive ideas and the latest movements in these three sectors – moving from connections to relationships, from making to growing, and from social to human – we also aim to pave new pathways in developing the Workforce of the Future.
