Khronos Session

The Challenge of Spatial Computing: How Cloud, Network, and Device work together to produce AR/VR Experiences

Speaker: Neil Trevett, Khronos Group President
Date: May 28th
Presentation Slides

Major shifts in human-computer interaction have happened since the beginning of computing, from mainframes to smartwatches. Core technology advances in sensors, AI, & computer are bringing Spatial Computing center stage, transforming the world into the platform and putting natural interaction – perception, voice, and gesture at the heart of human-computer interactions.

The challenge of spatial computing requires new approaches and disruption to communications, networks, and the internet. We must get out in front of this convergence to drive action, educate, and recruit members of the industry to get on board and build the systems and standards to make these new experiences a reality.

This all-day workshop will bring together stakeholders from network, device, and experience to illuminate and kickoff an ongoing conversation about the roadmap and outcomes needed to make spatial computing our reality. (A second workshop will be held in Munich in October at AWE EU.)

Deploying AR At Scale: Dispatches From The Front Lines

Speaker: Tony Parisi | Unity Technologies

Abstract: Immersive technologies like VR and AR arguably represent the most powerful storytelling medium we have ever had. Until recently, AR brand applications and experiences have been relegated to experiments and bespoke activations, trapped within the confines of purpose-built applications. But the industry is moving fast. Really fast. And while change is great, it can also be confusing, misleading and messy. How are brands using AR? Who is adopting? Is it really working? Join Unity Technologies’ Tony Parisi as he explores the utility of AR, examining its usefulness, scalability, and enjoyment through case studies, lessons learned and experiences from the field.
