A fireside chat with Rony Abovitz, CEO of Sun and Thunder (founder of Magic Leap and MAKO Surgical), and his podcast co-host, Forbes tech columnist Charlie Fink. Rony will discuss why he thinks we're in a difficult but necessary middle "Gemini" phase (Mercury-Gemini-Apollo) before a deeper convergence of multiple technologies enables a full flowering of the XR seeds we have been planting for the past ten years, and the five decades before that.

"What are the AR Use Cases?" It's a question we get asked all the time as platform builders, but the truth is that this space has been so inundated with visions of the future that it's easy to overlook the fact that XR is here today with solid practical use cases... if you know where to look and how to look for it. Pull back the veil on the mysteries of XR as we explore case studies on XR as a value driver today and answer the philosophical question of "What would make me put on AR glasses not tomorrow, not someday, but today?" The answers may surprise you.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already having a significant influence on the Metaverse and the intersection of AI and the Metaverse will become increasingly evident as AI evolves and the Metaverse grows.
AI can be used to create more realistic and engaging experiences in virtual worlds, intelligent avatars that can engage with users in a more natural way, and personalized content in real-time. All of this can improve the overall experience for users. Furthermore, AI can be used to create more efficient and scalable infrastructure for the Metaverse, enabling more users to participate and interact with each other.
However, there will be challenges as well, such as biases in algorithms that perpetuate harmful stereotypes, false or manipulated content leading to misinformation, and questions about privacy and security.
This expert panel will discuss the issues and how AI might potentially transform how we interact with others in immersive spaces.
