Narrator: Welcome to Disruptors Unleashed, a new podcast series by Dassault Systèmes that showcases the disruptive technologies shaping our future, and the trailblazers redefining our industries. Every episode will seek to challenge your understanding of what’s possible — because on Disruptors Unleashed, we don’t just adapt to change, we ignite it.

In our first episode, we take a look at unconventional ways to innovate in the ever-evolving world of manufacturing, with our guests: Stéphane Sireau, David Rowan, Florence Verzelen, and Paul Armstrong.

Host: It's possible that no other era in living memory has experienced such radical, rapid and widespread technological change, as the one in which we are now living. It's a period of profound digital transformation. And it should come as no surprise that manufacturers are also finding the way they operate, transformed by new technology.

The possibilities can seem limitless — new materials, new processes, new products, even entirely new business models. In this first episode, we talked to leading industry experts to try and understand the nature of the technological changes, and the skills and attitudes manufacturing industries will need to cultivate if they're to turn new ideas into real innovation.

To start with, however, we must understand exactly what technologies are on the table, and what trends are shaping their deployment. For this, we turn to Stéphane Sireau. Stephane is vice president of high tech industry at Dassault Systèmes, and gives a taste of some of the new technological tools manufacturers are working with.
