Autodesk is committed to helping current—and future—customers, workers, and communities thrive in the coming era of AI-driven automation.
What we believe
Automation technology is needed to help businesses and society meet the demands of our growing and urbanizing global population. We recognize that it also contributes to job disruptions—and that Autodesk has a responsibility to help workers adapt. We are committed to putting people at the center of this future of work transformation. Autodesk is investing in our customers, communities, and employees to help them navigate and thrive in this changing landscape.
Investing in customers
Autodesk is developing training and technologies to help workers learn new skills, collaborate with AI in new ways, earn professional credentials, and secure new jobs or future careers.
Autodesk certification and credentials
Competition for (and among) talent is fierce. Autodesk provides industry-recognized certifications and credentials that help workers and their employers keep pace with rapidly evolving industries—and stay competitive.
Autodesk Research is developing new techniques that pair the strength and precision of robots with the problem-solving insight of people. The Brickbot project exemplifies this kind of AI/human collaboration.
Automation is rewiring the future of work—the time for action is now
The Aspen Institute’s Alastair Fitzpayne and Autodesk Foundation Executive Director Joe Speicher wrote this op-ed for The Hill. They cover the steps that employers, workers, educators, and policy makers must take to better prepare for the ways automation is reshaping our economy and work trends.
Autodesk Foundation Executive Director Joe Speicher spoke at the MIT Technology Review 2019 “EmTech Next” conference in Cambridge, MA. Based on research into the skills gaps in the manufacturing and construction industries, Speicher outlines an eight-part framework for action that goes well beyond the typical focus on re-skilling workers.
