As generative design, AI, and IoT usher in the "Augmented Age," our tools are becoming radically more useful by amplifying our natural abilities. Join Autodesk Distinguished Research Scientist Erin Bradner, and special guests from Dell, Frame, Intel, HP, Lenovo, and Nvidia for a fascinating conversation about how this new era is shaping the future of how things are made. Arrive early for drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and a good seat.
Dr. Erin Bradner is the Director of Autodesk’s Robotics Lab, in Autodesk Research, based in San Francisco. She and her research team are developing tools so industrial robots can intelligently make things by sensing, responding and adapting to new information in real-time. Under Erin’s leadership, Autodesk’s Robotics Lab is using of artificial intelligence and closed-loop controls to teach robots new workflows in manufacturing and AEC. Prior to leading the Robotics Lab, Erin co-founded the Generative Design practice at Autodesk – through research and thought leadership she helped incubate the technology from concept to commercialization. Erin is driven to discover how to leverage intelligent software tools for smarter manufacturing and design. Previously, Erin consulted on the first commercial intelligent agents and cloud storage systems; and worked at IBM, Boeing, and AT&T. Erin is a co-author on patents in advanced design and publishes in academia. She holds a PhD in Information & Computer Science.
