AU London Showcases How Industries Are Converging

June 27, 2018

If you were at Tobacco Dock last week for AU London, you saw another example of what makes this learning community special. More than 1,600 professionals from across construction, manufacturing, and media gathered to share knowledge, gather perspective, and learn how others are adapting to the changes taking place in our industries.

What went down? 75 different classes and 26 hands-on labs. An Industry Keynote and a General Session. Multiple networking events. And an Expo Hall filled with examples of the future of making things in practice.

Free Cloud Credits Announced for Fusion 360 Ultimate Customers
There were several big announcements at the event. Perhaps the biggest was that, with generative design technology now part of Fusion 360 Ultimate, Autodesk and Amazon Web Services are teaming up to provide 500 free cloud credits to new customers—in addition to the 1,000 credits you get with your subscription—so you can use generative design in your projects. The first 1,000 companies to sign up for Fusion 360 Ultimate starting July 1 get the credits, and the giveaway ends September 30. Learn more at In the Fold.

On the Mainstage
Autodesk CEO Andrew Anagnost took to the mainstage with Director of Robotics for the Office of the CTO at Autodesk, Erin Bradner, to discuss how AEC, Design & Manufacturing, and media are converging, thanks to advances in AI and automation. They also explored what these changes will mean for those who work in these industries. They shared how Autodesk is continuing to invest in helping professionals adapt by partnering with the Aspen Institute’s Future of Work Initiative, which provides actionable policy ideas for US policy makers at the federal, state, and local levels, advancing the national dialogue around the future of work.
