Ori Inbar, CEO and cofounder of AWE, will welcome attendees to the annual AWE EU 2023 event with the theme: XR is Everywhere!
He'll kick off his annual update with the state of the XR industry and where it's headed.
Daniel will give a brief overview of how AR hardware and software developed over the past 25 years and how it led to where AR glasses are today.
How can we create value with technology? We will look at the Artivive use case, a 250k creators platform that uses AR to blend traditional and digital art, elevating both art forms and adding genuine value.
In this talk from XR developer Lee Vermeulen, he’ll go through a year of AR prototypes. What worked and didn’t in a year of experimenting with the future of augmented reality – including liquid physics interactions, AI NPCs, and portals.
The Metaverse hype came and went, Web 3.0 seems to have been frozen by the Crypto Winter and AI is both thrilling and terrifying. Many companies are challenged by what technologies can bring the most value in the short-, mid- and long term. How do we start and where can we go?
Some of the most exciting advancements are in the realm of AI-powered simulation, optimization, digital twins, virtual humans and sensor technology. The best strategies bring a human-centric approach to leveraging these technologies.
In this talk, we will share how this digital evolution will be the enabler not only of business optimization and simulation, but will also lay the foundation for the products and services of the future. We will combine human capital with visionary practices and pave the path to the future with technology and vision.
We will review:
• What Spatial Computing, the 3D Internet and Web 3.0 really mean for companies
• Augmenting Human Performance
• Digital Twins and Simulation – visualizing and optimizing processes
• Building parallel innovations paths
The fusion of humans and technology provides a unique opportunity to create new tools to solve some of the world's most pressing problems, including those in education. This talk offers a visionary perspective on how the convergence of Artificial Intelligence, Immersive Technologies, and brain-computer interfaces will revolutionize the way we teach, assess and learn. We will journey the spectrum of what’s possible, from the transformative potential of AI-driven adaptive learning systems that cater to the individual's unique learning style, to an adaptive, and deeply personalized AI learning management system that will deepen the learning experience by fostering the development of crucial skills in learners.
However, no transformation comes without challenges. As we navigate the inevitable job displacement resulting from technological advancement, it's vital to ensure that education equips individuals with the skills needed for the emerging job landscape. Moreover, the commitment to making education accessible, inclusive, and equitable is non-negotiable. This talk invites you to envision and shape an educational future that's not only technologically advanced but also responsible and spectacularly beneficial for all. Don't miss this exciting journey into the next era of learning.
Step into a visionary world where architecture and design transcend traditional boundaries. Sahar Fikouhi will explore how augmented reality is poised to revolutionize the way we conceive, create, and experience built environments. Discover how AR blurs the lines between the physical and digital realms, enhancing the creative process and enabling architects and designers to dream bigger and bolder.
Social AR, or Augmented Reality on Social Media platforms, has evolved tremendously in the last 5 years. What started with simple filters (like the famous Snapchat dog ears) have now become advanced immersive experiences reaching billions, with features far beyond what most would expect.
The advances made by social media giants like Snapchat, TikTok, and Instagram have been significant, with their tools now resembling sophisticated game engines.
We will share examples of our work, and demonstrate currently available features you would never think possible on a mobile device!
Think VPS, Physics, LiDAR World Meshing, advanced particle systems, custom-built Machine Learning models, and much more, all in real-time.
Our work has utilized such advanced features, allowing us to create complex visuals and interactive experiences seen by millions.
We believe social AR is democratizing the field of XR with these accessible and powerful tools, which we will be discussing in more detail.
Join this panel discussion of how immersive arts, languages and new jobs are reshaped by immersive, emerging technologies and Web3.
