This session will review some of the most exciting technological innovations that are being patented throughout the world in the AR / VR / MR space. Numerous examples of patented and patent-pending innovations covering both hardware and software inventions from the smallest companies to the largest companies (e.g., Apple, Microsoft, Google, Facebook) will be provided. Predictions of future patent infringement lawsuits will also be made.
09:30 AM - 10:20 AM
360 XR gaming technology is immersive, inner-active, and at the very least cool. It is the main driver of the metaverse industry. Immersive VR Video and VR Filmmaking is a huge departure from traditional filmmaking. Come learn from this panel how they capture reality “as real as it is” and tell their stories in a 3D Metaverse. VR as a medium, has the ability to transport the mind without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home. With this comes a great ethical responsibility for anyone creating in the VR Metaverse.
Join us for a provocative and engaging conversation as we discuss the elements of storytelling as it applies to VR; how VR can expand your brand; and the responsibility that falls to all of us given the ethical concerns that are innate with the technology.
10:25 AM - 10:55 AM
IEEE Future Directions drives efforts on current, new and emerging technologies. Specifically of interest is the focus on immersive and intelligent realities leveraging AR/VR/MR, AI/ML driving the overall digital transformation. Hear more on what IEEE is doing in this space.
11:10 AM - 11:35 AM
Introducing a new technology into an organization is always a challenge- funding it, building it and operationalizing it, even more so. This is especially true when the perception is that it could make existing skillsets obsolete.
The creation of 3D content involves new workstreams and new stakeholders, but the aesthetic sensibilities and consumer insights needed to engage customers remain unchanged. The impact of curation and storytelling will never fall away. We need the talent we have today- most of whom have never leveraged 3D assets in their work.
Emotional intelligence has a place on your technology roadmap. It’s a big LOE, of course, but baking it in means you’ll spend a lot less time dragging colleagues into the future kicking and screaming. (Not literally, of course.)
The process is rooted in this basic truth; We need one another.
11:40 AM - 12:05 PM
Where does the Great Resignation leave more than 2 billion frontline workers? Thanks to recent advancements in assisted reality, the frontline workforce will be able to get real-time contextual data in the right place and time and be a part of the industrial metaverse. Digital transformation and XR will connect them to their machines and teams in ways they never thought possible. In so doing, they will be seen as an essential part of the Digital Factory, elevated with new skills to navigate exciting new environments -- including AI and IoT. Hear from RealWear what the future holds using an industrial strength HMD, such as RealWear NavigatorTM 500 solution. Learn how macro trends including AI, IoT and Cloud have converged to create the modern frontline industrial worker. RealWear’s chief product officer will share new emerging use cases that will continue to accelerate the next industrial revolution.
12:10 PM - 12:35 PM
At the intersection of the physical and digital, today's commercial real estate leaders are investing in a new digital infrastructure and AR to streamline operations, offer innovative experiences, and monetize physical properties in entirely new ways. In this session, Gloria Gavin, Chief Business Officer at Resonai, and Yuji Doi, Innovation Manager at Kajima Construction, will discuss how any business can transform physical properties into data driven digital assets to enable modern experiences, increase operational efficiencies, and benefit from the new business models and revenue opportunities that are now possible in a growing mixed reality world.
02:05 PM - 03:00 PM
Using Resolve's VR software, Meta’s data center design and construction teams use Quest 2 for cross functional collaborative feedback sessions of the General Contractor's Master Construction Model. This enables data center end users, like facilities operations, culinary, and security teams, to provide valuable feedback early in the design and construction process. This type of virtual collaboration has saved Meta substantial time and money by identifying issues before construction and optimizing for a safer, more efficient, and sustainable final data center build.
03:05 PM - 03:30 PM
Learn how to begin implementing enterprise training in the Metaverse. This presentation will include key steps in the Discovery, Design, and Deployment process to guide you in transforming 2D instructions into 3D. Ideas will be shared on how to up skill your team, build an ROX (Return on Experience ) with business impact, and educate your organization through the transformation process.
