Extending Reality Through VR and AR Technology

Presenter: Louise Liu, UK Head of Operations and Delivery, VR/AR at PwC

Virtual reality and augmented reality are technologies that have been evolving for over 50 years, but where did they come from and why are they useful to us? We are on a path where VR/AR will form a part of our everyday lives, both professional and personal. From training more inclusive behaviours to helping us navigate the physical world and everything in between, hear about what opportunities these technologies hold for us now and in the future as well as the challenges they face in becoming a mainstream part of our lives.

Transforming Workers’ Realities with AR, VR, and AI

Presenter: Michael Thomas, Systems Architect, SAS

Enterprise use of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) is expected to form a multi-billion-dollar market over the next few years. It is a human-centric aspect of digital transformation. Whether it is a field worker seeing IoT with an AR headset or smartphone, a data astronaut immersed in real time big data with VR, or an expert guiding a technician from their desk halfway around the world, the recurring theme is making reality itself more intelligent. This talk explores how reality technologies combined with AI and real-time data sources like IoT can be used to digitally transform workers’ realities.

Drive Business Resilience and Continuity with Augmented Reality

Presenter: Nick Leeder Vice President, Digital Transformation Solutions Field, at PTC

Learn how augmented reality (AR) can enable organisations to respond, recover, and thrive in the age of digital transformation. In this session, PTC will discuss specific use cases and how organisations are putting their people front and centre with AR to improve business and customer outcomes during periods of volatility. And finally, attendees will learn from real-world experiences and how organisations are creating measurable, repeatable, and scalable value through augmented reality.

With examples across training, healthcare, media and entertainment, education, AEC, and product development, join Joanna Popper from HP as she discusses why VR is the future of computing.

How to Create a Winning 3D Strategy

Presenter: Ashley Crowder, CEO and Co-Founder, Vntana

3D is no longer just for gaming, we are in the midst of a massive digital revolution from 2D to 3D/Computer-Generated Images (CGI). From digital influencers to 3D commerce to AR/VR training, 3D is taking over and for good reason—3D gives buyers more confidence proven to double online conversion rates while 3D training has proven to provide 75% better retention. How do you create a 3D strategy for your organisation and where do you start? Ashley Crowder will review the requirements for web and mobile AR as well as the different industry use cases to help enterprises focus on their core needs to build a winning 3D strategy quickly and efficiently.

XR Technologies, The Natural Evolution of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

Presenter: David Castañeda, Co-Founder/Business Catalyst, Visionaries 777

AR/VR/MR are continuously breaching the gap between the physical and digital worlds. Hardware leaders such as Apple, Microsoft, Samsung, and Lenovo are investing heavily on creating new revolutionary wearable devices that will influence how every human learns, interacts, works, and plays. Implementation of XR technologies has been accelerated by industrial market leaders, through this presentation we will share real-time examples and explain how these have dramatically optimised processes within multiple organisations.

VR at Africa’s Cutting Edge: When to Bring Industrial Intelligence Closer to Action

Presenter: Rose Fina Barasa, Project Coordinator, Strathmore University

Virtual Reality looks to achieve giant, hairy, impudent goals – externally questionable, internally not regarded as impossible. This webinar will decode the adaptation curve and the 3Ds of VR while recommending how enterprises employ analytics at the cutting edge.

How to Create XR Experiences Fast with Your Existing Teams

Presenter: Alan Smithson, CEO, MetaVRse

Learn how organisations are unlocking immediate value using spatial computing. In the age of spatial computing, human beings are engaging in a shift from how we interacted with static computers in the past, to how we can engage with the immersive, engaging technology of today. Spatial computing explains how we are increasingly stepping inside of the world of computers, rather than just interacting with it from a distance.
