Join us as we open up the conversation across industries too often siloed, from Architecture to Automotive, Design & Manufacturing, Virtual Production, and Digital Humans. We will address many exciting topics, from Real-Time in the Cloud to Edge Computing, Haptics & Interaction, Brain & Computer Interfaces and How to Collaborate in Spatial Environments, Merging Physical and Digital Worlds, Neural Rendering, Virtual Production, New Real-Time Reality for Sports, Deep Fakes, and much more!
Building the Metaverse One Standard at A Time
Keynote speaker: Neil Trevett Day and Time: Monday, April 26 at 6:00 - 6:30p.m. PDT
3D digital and virtual spaces are becoming ubiquitous across education, work, and entertainment. This is the rise of the metaverse: digitally enhanced physical reality and virtual spaces. The metaverse will be built by four key components: hardware, web, assets, and applications. The pace of innovation requires cross-industry alignment on a constellation of standards, guidelines and best practices to enable the consistent creation and distribution of scalable cross-platform 3D and XR content. This presentation brings together perspectives on each area, drawn from the open standards working groups striving to build the metaverse.
From Offline to Real-Time – Scalable Asset Pipelines for 3D Commerce
Speaker: Dr. Max Limper Day and Time: Monday, April 26 at 12:05 - 12:40p.m. PDT
Within this talk, Max will outline different methods how retailers are solving the challenge of cost-efficient asset creation. He will also highlight the recent efforts on standardizing 3D commerce asset creation, which the Khronos group has been undertaking in tight cooperation with leading retailers such as IKEA, Wayfair, and Target. Max will focus on what parts of the real-time asset creation pipeline can already be automated today, and provide an outlook on possible automated pipelines of the near future.
