Building the Autodesk Design Graph

Slides PDF Video

Autodesk is a company with a rich history of creating design tools to help people imagine, design and create a better world. The Design Graph consists of machine learned relationships between designs, their parts, attributes, users, projects and social inputs extracted from large amounts of rich 3D design data. The graph will be the basis from which we build syntactic and semantic models of design, to enable explore, discover and navigate workflows to facilitate our customers design efforts. This talk will present how we use Spark in our processing pipeline for building the graph.
