Future of Work: The Next Technological Revolution

Oct 18

13:00 - 13:30

Description

Work is getting more complicated with new competitors, changing regulations and compliance needs, desire to bring products and services to market ever-faster, and M&A activities to help gain footholds in new market spaces. These things all lead to a significant set of challenges. For many CEOs today, the long-term focus is about disrupting their businesses with new models and technologies. We’re on the brink of a technological revolution to change how we live, work, and interact with each other, with increasing pervasiveness of artificial intelligence and machine learning allowing a more consumer-like user experience across the enterprise. Successful organizations are focused on empowering the workforce with tools designed around its needs, unleashing their full creativity, bringing new talent from new places into the organization, and helping them work and collaborate more effectively. In this session, Christian Reilly, CTO of Citrix, describes the future of work as one that integrates devices, people, data, and analytics technologies to deliver the experience, security, and choice that people and organizations need to unlock innovation and stay on the leading edge of productivity. Key Talking Points: Talent is driving companies to kick off employee experience strategies, to find and retain the right talent and make that talent productive. Our physical relationship with “the machines” is changing, moving toward a world where the physical and virtual are one. Enterprises who can adapt best to the pace of change, shift people and tech resources around, create new workflows based on market conditions, and put the right data in front of people, will win. Users demand from their technology accessibility, customization, ease of use, device agnosticism, personalization, productivity, and responsiveness. These technology enablers will be needle-movers in addressing user demands and how work gets done: AR, VR, ML, chatbots, facial recognition, digital assistants, voice as the UI, citizen development.

Description

This presentation will begin with a short introduction to the Boeing Augmented Reality Kit (BARK) platform architecture. The presenter will discuss (1) its interfaces to production systems for retrieval of work instructions and configuration controlled 3D data, (2) the Services layer and automated building of 3D “jobs” for mobile devices, and (3) the front end applications running on the Microsoft HoloLens, Smartphones and Tablets. We will then cover the first four use cases and applications to airplane manufacturing – BARK Wire Install, Locator, Viewer and Part Install. Following this, we will review work now completed to move the BARK back end into the cloud, and how we incorporated requirements around Information Security, Infrastructure and Safety into the design. Finally, the presenter will discuss some architecture considerations as the platform evolves and grows to incorporate new use cases in Boeing factories, and larger groups of more diverse users.
