Ori Inbar, Co-founder and Executive Director of AWE and Super Ventures will kick off the 4th AWE EU with a special welcome address and his annual state of the industry.
For 50 years, computing has been a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional world.
Now, tech giants and thousands of startups who are seeking growth opportunities beyond mobile have set spatial computing on a trajectory for exponential growth. Most large corporations are adopting spatial computing to improve their businesses driven by strong evidence it delivers measurable ROI, and consumers begin to appreciate the radical benefits of this technology which could signal the next dimension of humanity. In 2019, everyone must enter the next dimension to understand the impact it’s bound to have on their lives and businesses.

50% of companies globally are experiencing skilled worker shortage to meet current service demands, and 70% of field service orgs face knowledge loss due to retiring workers in the next 5-10 years. Lenovo’s Commercial AR/VR Lead, Nathan Pettyjohn, will discuss the importance of creating scalable AR solutions within the workforce that improve training and worker productivity. Lenovo will showcase the ThinkReality software platform and ThinkReality A6 augmented reality headset and how it can be used within manufacturing, warehouse, energy, mining, gas and oil environments to optimize your business. Industry challenges and key solution use cases will be explored including remote expert, logistics and workflow compliance, and 3D visualization for design collaboration, all which are expected to transform workforce training and productivity. Additional topics include:
Building, managing and deploying solutions in an agnostic hardware device environment for both augmented reality and virtual reality
How long term IOT and 5G strategies should be considered within enterprise AR/VR deployments
Public Cloud, Private Cloud and On-Premise Considerations in AR and VR Enterprise Deployments

In this fireside chat Microsoft, Bosch and RE’FLEKT will share their vision of not only where they believe the future of AR/MR is going but how close collaboration between Hardware, Software and customer specific solutions got us there. Most importantly they will explain why companies such as these join forces to serve their collective customers as well as discussing some of the key barriers these customers are currently facing to adopt and scale AR/MR solutions such as breaking through the pilot purgatory. To top it all off – Microsoft’s, Michael Zawrel with showcase a live demo of one of these best-in-class Enterprise AR Solutions on the HoloLens 2.
10:30 - 11:00
PLM systems such as Siemens Teamcenter are the beating heart of most industrial powerhouses in their ability to serve all aspects of the value chain from design to production. Why should this be any different for AR? For the first time RE’FLEKT and Siemens will present together how the Siemens PLM structure can now be used to make AR content at any stage of the PLM information flow. We will show how AR connects to existing enterprise systems and how it works – naturally with a special inside look at Siemens Teamcenter. Together we will also give exclusive insights to what is next for Siemens users as well as what else to expect from the growing RE’FLEKT Enterprise OS.

Effectively deploying digital continuity solutions such as AR-guided operator solutions require the right combination of applications highly adapted to specific needs and constraints, of hardware implementation (projection, head-mounted displays like the HoloLens, tablets, mobiles, desktop workstation, IoS, Android, Windows…) and of data use and exploitation (PLM and CAD data, field data…). Besides, effectively deploying digital continuity solutions with an optimal ROI more and more assumes the right combination of various technologies into integrated solutions (simulation, IoT, robotics, AR/MR, AI…). Last but not least, effectively deploying digital continuity solutions always requires that players from various profiles (industrial companies, integrators, engineering consultants…) may effectively collaborate for industry-fitted solutions. In this presentation, Diota will share its experience in deploying real use cases taking into account all these key points and will explain how to effectively success.
11:30 - 12:00
VR and AR allows us to do much more than just playing games. New tools means new ways to think, work and overall live. During this presentation, the European Parliament Innovation department will go through use cases that illustrate what the future of work could become.
13:00 - 13:45
A panel discussion covering the state of immersive journalism since the hype in 2014 and looking at the future in terms of format and storytelling. We will explore various parts of the value chain challenges from identifying who is the audience for immersive journalism and documentaries, to skills gap in the content creation process, to new distribution & monetisation opportunities
13:45 - 14:30
In the past, numerous use cases have been piloted to demonstrate the potential of XR for business applications. An example of this is the VR product configurator, in which customers can already experience products virtually in order to make a purchase decision. Such applications are usually associated with a large hardware investment and built statically. But how do the future services reach the mobile customer? Which business models are promising and what are the requirements for a successful rollout? We want to discuss these aspects in the panel with the experts from the different areas and thereby shed light on the way from service to customer.

On Snapchat, AR usage isn’t experimental, it’s habitual — with 70% of our 203 million users interacting with AR everyday. In this session, learn about the unique characteristics of the Gen Z and Millennial generation that will redefine the role of the camera in consumers lives and how hundreds of marketers globally are tapping into AR to reach their audience at scale.

At AWE 2019 in Santa Clara, Volvo Cars and Varjo announced their cooperation in development of one of the most advanced use cases for XR that has been achieved, driving a real car on the road with the human-eye resolution headset XR-1 from Varjo. The world leading performance in terms of resolutions, latency and eye-tracking of the XR-1 headset makes it possible to overlay digital content on the video pass-through video stream in order to evaluate new design and functions of new cars during development. The overlaid virtual content is connected to the signals from the physical car, which enables interaction with all vehicle functions while driving. This talk will take you through the journey of development of the Augmented Reality Car and give insights in the technical challenges that has been resolved both by Varjo and Volvo Cars. It will also present how this new tool is used for advanced use cases like active safety, design reviews and technology development at Volvo Cars.

Spatial was founded by two TED Fellows to transform how people across the world work together . It was recently featured in two keynotes by Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft. This talk will explain how Spatial grew out of its founders' previous startup (sold to Google) and work at the MIT Media Lab, into a solution that Forbes describes as "extraordinary" and "disruptive." It will focus on the underlying design principles behind Spatial, the features of the current solution, and our vision of the near future of AR collaboration.
