Bernard CHARLES > Speaker > Dassault Systèmes®

The experience economy, accelerated by the pandemic, triggers new categories of expectations from citizens, patients, learners and consumers. Tomorrow's mobility is no longer a matter of vehicles. It’s a matter of desirable, sustainable mobility experiences. Tomorrow's healthcare is much more than therapeutics. It’s about the patient journey and precision medicine. Tomorrow's cities are not only a collection of buildings, streets and facilities. It’s about quality of life and quality of service. To support these transformations, we need to take a more holistic approach. I believe the innovators of today and tomorrow have to think in terms of "universes", that is to say in terms of organic systems of systems that create, produce and play an experience in a circular economy. We can make this a reality through virtual twin experiences based on modeling and simulation, real world evidence and immersive virtual reality. I truly believe the ongoing transformation toward a sustainable economy will mark this century.
