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.
MR technology has already revolutionized the way we work, and many companies are seeing tangible results. It also presents the prospect of a strong partner ecosystem to drive innovation. Learn how powerful and manageable new products like Gen AI and AR technology, including Meta Quest 3 and Meta Quest for Business, can help connect employees and transform the way we work in the future.
Gadgets such as computers and smartphones have become integral to our daily routines, yet it seems they are reaching their limits. Join XPANCEO's founders, Roman Axelrod and Valentyn Volkov, Ph.D., as they delve into the evolution of these devices, envision the next generation of computing, and illuminate the essential technologies propelling us into this exciting new era.
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.
Metaverse is facing an unprecedented opportunity for explosive and disruptive growth. We are currently between two stages of Digitalization: the exploding Intelligentization and the upcoming Realitization (Metaverse). AI is transforming forces of production and relations of production, while Metaverse will redefine production and redefine life. Metaverse will also be a cure for sustainability challenges. Join us to accelerate the take-off of the metaverse industry for sustainability and humanity.
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?
With all the focus on technology, we are missing the most important element - our workforce.
Some of the most exciting advancements are in the realm of human performance acceleration. The best strategies bring a human-centric approach to improving our capabilities.
In this talk, we will share how organizations, as well as individuals can harness technology to improve their capabilities.
We will combine human capital with visionary practices and pave the path to the future with technology and vision.
We will review:
- The Pillars of Human Performance
- Augmenting Human Performance with XR, AI and BCI (Brain-Computer Interfaces)
- The positive impact of creating a holistic approach to elevating our capabilities and overall wellness
- How these practices will ensure a more productive and well-rounded workforce
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.
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.
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.
We are in times of transition. The old no longer works as it used to and the new does not yet function as desired. On the one hand, this is the great challenge of our time, visible in all facets of our coexistence, on the other hand a great great opportunity. This lecture is a passionate plea to participate in the shaping of the the central issues of the future - and not just to a few decision-makers in politics and business.
Reza Razavi uses examples from the business world and a retrospective look at our history, how great transformations have occurred and also failed. In order for change we need to understand what transformation means. That it is not a top-down optimization of the same, but rather a process of participation and commonality. But where do we start? And who?
The so-called imagos play a special role in any transformation. What Imagos are and how they act and communicate, Reza Razavi vividly explains and makes you want to participate as an Imago in shaping the future.
With his books, workshops and lectures, Reza Razavi touches, moves and inspires people who want to initiate and drive change in companies.
In detail he conveys:
• Why we live in a world of change today and why that is good.
• Why change in business is the key to sustainable success.
• Why change is not a threat, but the path to success and fulfillment for every of each
• What conditions increase the chances of successful transformation?
• What are the do's and don'ts of a transformation ?
• Which paradigms promote/obstruct ?
• How do we get everyone in the same boat ?
• What does the cooperation model look like with which transformation can succeed?
• Why are own values important guard rails in a transformation?
A thought-provoking panel discussion that delves into the fascinating intersection between arts, immersive and emerging technologies, experiences and people, exploring how the creation of new languages is revolutionising content production and reshaping the arts landscape. This panel brings together visionaries, experts, and thought leaders who will delve into the transformative impact of AI, Web3, and immersive interactions on the narrative landscape of the digital age. From augmenting human creativity to reshaping audience engagement, we'll examine the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead and how immersive art, gamified quests, interactive and co-created worlds are shaping new forms of expression and narrative.
By combining artistic and technological skills, ArTechs hybrid curriculum are the main resources to enable the next technological switch and companies’ evolution towards a whole new dimension of creative expression and audience participation.
