XR is at the heart of industry, education, health, and social networks. The development of immersive technology will only be successful if it is created by a diverse workforce, empowered to create an XR that represents that experience of all people. As our world is transformed by the prospect of XR, employment opportunities abound for people of all levels of education and experience.

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.
