Dr. Álvaro Gramática Retires to Canada, Otto Schmidt Promoted to New Director of Future Technologies Division

After year of service at Abstergo Industries, our beloved Dr. Álvaro Gramática has retired at the age of 54 to Vancouver, Canada to spend more time with his loving wife and grandchildren. Dr. Álvaro’s service to Abstergo has been astonishing.

Álvaro was born in Mexico City in 1965 and graduated from university at the age of 17 with advanced degrees in physics and computer science, eventually developing an expertise in mechanical engineering and biology.

Álvaro was recruited into Abstergo in 2008 to work on the Akashic Satellite Plexus. In 2009, he created the Data Dump Scanner, a proprietary technology that would eventually lead to the creation of Helix, when combined with the Animus interface. Since then, Dr. Álvaro worked closely on the DIA satellite up to 2011 where he then ventured even deeper in the the Future Technologies Division. In 2012, Dr. Álvaro joined The Phoenix Project and tackled some of Dr. Warren Vidic‘s. In 2014, Dr. Álvaro became the new head of The Phoenix Project uncovering ground breaking approaches and technologies that helped in Abstergo’s pursuit of knowledge. In 2017, he got promoted to the position of Director of Research of the Future Technology Division where he continued to grow until his retirement.

“I believe that the time has come for me to take a break from all the work and see to my grandchildren in their pursuit of knowledge. Abstergo has been my family from the very beginning and it brings me great privilege to see my children growing within that family as well” – Dr. Álvaro Gramática

Upon Dr. Álvaro’s retirement, Otto Schmidt, leader of Epsilon Team and former Head of the Future Technologies Division has been promoted to Director of Future Technologies Division and all sub-related departments.

We all hope the best for Former Director Dr. Álvaro Gramática on his retirement and Director Otto Schmidt for his new responsibilities.

Abstergo Industries Supporting SpaceX and NASA Against Asteroid To Hit Earth in 2022

It is both alarming and comforting to know that “Didymoon” of the moonlet of “Didymos (65803)” is heading towards our planet, aiming to crash sometime in the year 2022 and we are working hard towards preventing this disaster in what can only be defined as the “the first-ever mission to demonstrate the capability to deflect an asteroid by colliding a spacecraft with it at high speed – NASA”.

With our vast network and resources, Abstergo Industries is working closely with The National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States Federal Government as well as with the pioneer of his time, CEO Elon Musk of Tesla and SpaceX in efforts to launch NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) concept that has been long held by NASA for many years.

Abstergo’s new Director of Research of the Future Technology Division Otto Schmidt and Abstergo’s Head of the Operations Division Laetitia England flew out to California on Thursday, 16th of May 2019 meeting up with CEO Elon Musk where discussions on both the Starlink Project and the DART Project took place. Rumors has it that Abstergo Industries and Abstergo Entertainment may have a future hand in the development of the Starlink Project.

The DART Project consists of a spaceship to be launched directly at the moonlet in attempts to divert it from its course via heavy impact.

 The DART impact is expected to take place on October 7, 2022

Origins and a Festival

By now you have all heard about Abstergo Entertainment’s next big game, Assassins Creed Origins, which gives you a look in to ancient Egypt from the point of view of a disgruntled vigilante named Bayek as he works to protect the people from so called threats. However, in collaboration with a sister gaming company, we showcase the fantastical powers of theses so called vigilantes that have been loved in our previous games and combine them with the wildly popular Final Fantasy games. The theme of the story plays out like all our other games in that this group of “Assassins” strike out against imaginary foes and causes harm to good people just doing their jobs. In our work, we like to remind people that this terrorist group has cause widespread chaos and devastation, even nearly ending the world at one point, but that’s another story.
Be sure to catch our latest lessons, ok games, this fall. Origins is set to release October 27, 2017
Assassin Festival runs now till January 31, 2018. Check out the trailer below.

Pet Translators

Abstergo Industries hopes to have pet translators available in the next ten years. As our research in communication extends from cyber to organic, we find ways to better communicate with the world around us and that will soon extend to our pets. Pets have become an increasingly integral part of our lives, to the point that some pets have become “fur babies”, consumers are now demanding a way to better understand the needs of their dogs and cats. Abstergo is eager to explore the possibility of communication between humans and animals. The insights and perspective associated with the cognitive functions of animals can lead us to a new understanding of how humans see and interact with animals and the world around them. This can then in turn advance research in social behavior diseases and disorders. Therapeutic animals have been used in treating social behavior diseases and disorders, it is still unclear why animals have this healing tough and it is with great hope that pet translator will begin to unlock this mystery.
