With new technologies come new opportunities & challenges. This is no different for emerging technologies, 5G is one of the basic requirements to make the most of its many applications. Without a stable and solid data connection, 5G preferably, we are lost. Unlike other continents, Europe is not as connected as one might think. In large parts of Europe, people do not even have a stable Internet connection, let alone 5G technology.
What does this mean for the European market, for overall accessibility, its workforce, education, the XR ecosystem, hardware and software development? All domains that work with these emerging technologies, or even depend on them today and going forward.
Does Europe, its population, the European XR ecosystem really experience the difference with other continents/places where 5G is embedded and not only in the industry, in companies but even among the general public as well?
What are the consequences from the lack of accessibility? How are industries, businesses dealing with this lack daily? Unknown is unloved by the public, but how much are we falling behind in Europe because of that? Do we still have the ability to compete on a global scale?
A topic that - in today's world - is more relevant than ever, or at least should be!? Our panel members share their insights, each from their own experience and expertise. We're opening the discussion in the hope to inspire the people needed to defend Europe's position, to defend its interests on the world stage.
Ori Inbar, CEO and Co-Founder of AWE, will welcome attendees to the 13th annual AWE EU 2022 event with a fresh premise: XR makes dreams a reality!
He will kick off with how XR helped achieve his own personal dreams and proceed with covering how XR has been helping businesses deliver on their goals, people realize lifelong ambitions, and most crucially - fight the biggest threats facing humanity in the next decade.
Since 2010, AWE has been showcasing how XR can make dreams come true and AWE EU will continue with that tradition and help aspiring XR professionals fulfill more of their dreams while making a positive impact around the world with AR, VR and the Metaverse.
Everyone will wear AR glasses on their faces by 2030. Just centimeters from our optic nerve, computers have never been closer to our brains. This changes both content creation and consumption.
These immersive technologies could create a more empathetic, educated and empowering future. But they could also promote inequality and fake news.
Yusuf Omar, Co-CEO of SEEN, has been wearing cameras on his face for over a decade. His team has overlaid journalism stories on cities from Boston to Cape Town. Everyone loves a good story, especially if they can be a part of that story. And that’s what immersive storytelling does. On your face.
The Metaverse, the final frontier.
These are the voyages of many creators on a mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.
