Internal training tools - the mere thought of them can put anyone to sleep. Mandatory training is often associated with reading boring paragraphs of text, watching outdated videos, and clicking through multiple choice questions that fail to determine proficiency. With the amount of time and money we invest in training our employees, why do our tools feel like they're stuck in the PowerPoint era?
Fortunately, we are at an inflection point in our thinking and the technology available to us. Emerging technologies like XR, AI, and real-time 3D allow us to create original content faster than ever before. By using tools and techniques from games, which encourage learning and mastery through play, we can create more impactful training tools and experiences for employees.
This talk will focus on how ustwo and MGM Resorts put these ideas into practice using a digital twin of one of their flagship properties. We will discuss how we used game design and development principles, real-time 3D, and AI/XR tools to create a first-of-its-kind training tool. You’ll leave with tangible insights, principles, and practices on how to discover meaningful ways of deploying these technologies in your organizations - impacting efficiency, effectiveness, and the bottom line.

Jason McGuigan, Lenovo’s Head of Virtual Reality, will discuss how the current avalanche of AI powered services are acting as a major force multiplier for XR developers. With the launch of the Lenovo ThinkReality VRX, Jason will discuss how some of Lenovo’s software partners are adopting these technologies to enhance their products and deliver profound new experiences to their customers.
He will share examples of these tools in action and discuss how the adoption of GAI will allow smaller teams to do more, reduce the costs of development, and speed the time to market. The results of these advances will be nothing short of revolutionary as enterprise organizations will be able to solve for a greater variety of use cases in higher quality, more cost-effective VR solutions.
