Happy 1st Birthday to the LinkedIn Future Realities Community!

By Alyssa

Last year, on this very date, we announced the opening of our new LinkedIn community, Future Realities.  As we said that day:

At Dassault Systèmes, we are driven by a goal to help people imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product (the economy), nature (the environment) and life (the people). We believe that ‘if we ask the right questions, we can change the world.’  We are passionate about helping leaders in a range of industries around the world create innovative ways to advance and optimize our path to the future. To support our mission, we are excited to announce that we have formed a new community on LinkedIn called Future Realities.”

We founded the community as an interactive space for thought leaders from different industries all around the world to discuss big questions about future trends and technologies.  We are so pleased to witness how strongly the community has been embraced by LinkedIn members.  In just one year, we are closing in on 25,000 members who have started 820 discussion threads and added 4300 comments.  Every day, our members engage on topics ranging from the environment to artificial intelligence to shifts in the world economy.  We invited writers from The Economist and the Wall Street Journal to contribute articles, and along with our community members posting their own questions, we have learned much from reading compelling – and competing! – points of view about the future.  We’ve even recently asked our members to send in their questions on how the internet may soon revolutionize the industrial sector, for a chance to be featured in a video from WSJ.

There is always room for others who are excited to kick around ideas about the next big thing, so if you are not already a member, become one today! You can immediately share your own questions, or jump into any number of discussion topics.  Here are a few of our community’s recent favorites.

Thanks to everyone who has made the community what it is this past year.  We look forward to continued spirited discussions on what the future might hold…including topics that we can’t even yet imagine!

Silicon Valley Semiconductor User Group 2015 Meeting

By Matthew

Semiconductor User DayBack after popular customer demand!

Given the success of last year’s Semiconductor User Group meeting held in France at the Dassault Systèmes headquarters, it was decided to hold a similar meeting in North America.

That meeting happened last week.  On Tuesday, September 15th, a diverse set of customers and partners joined the high tech, semiconductor experts from Dassault Systèmes at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California to review and discuss how to turn Semiconductor Complexity into Business profitability.

With the room full, attendees were able to learn how and about:

  • Engineering teams can take an active role in helping their companies achieve profitability
  • See how Silicon Thinking delivers a collaborative business platform that brings design teams, manufacturing teams, and product engineering teams together for the first time
  • Streamlined SoC Design Closure
  • Effective SoC Design Collaborations
  • Pinpoint
  • …and more

The feedback was very positive with messages such as, “time well spent” , “great overview of real world solutions for use in our industry.

If you could not join us but are interested in getting some recap of the day, there is a blog entry in our Semiconductor User Group Community (membership required to access) where you can catch up on the day’s topics as well as access the day’s files to download (membership has its benefits!).  Click HERE to view the blog post and if you are not already a member, you will have to join before you can view the content.

We will have a corresponding day in Vélizy, France on October 22nd, offering you one more chance to join us at the Dassault Systèmes HQ!  Register for that HERE.

Keep up-to-date on all of our user meetings happening around the world via our Calendar of Events and we hope to see you soon!
