In this engaging two-part podcast, join the conversation between Justin Hodges and Dale Tutt, a seasoned aerospace and defense professional, as they delve into the intertwined realms of digital transformation and artificial intelligence (AI) in the realm of computer-aided design.
Initially in part one, Dale unfolds the essence of digital transformation, paving the way for an enlightening discussion on how AI significantly propels optimization cycles, with mention of generative design. The discussion then navigates towards real-world applications of AI, with Dale shedding light on mundane yet significant use cases where AI can be instrumental. This segment of the conversation sets a solid foundation, wrapping up with an appreciation for the enlightening discussion thus far, and a teaser for the upcoming exploration of digitalization across various industries in the second part of the podcast.
I hold the AI/ML technical specialist role in our product management team for our Simcenter products. I earned my bachelors, masters, and PhD in mechanical engineering at the University of Central Florida in thermofluids, with machine learning in my dissertation after falling in love with it during a 2017 internship at Princeton which combined CFD/AI.
Dale Tutt is the Vice President of Industry Strategy, for Siemens Digital Industries Software, leading the development digital transformation solutions that address the industry specific needs of customers.
