XR, How Future Computing is Transforming Imagination Into Reality

Immersive technologies (XR) like augmented, virtual, and mixed reality are gaining enterprise adoption. Digital transformation allows for more sophisticated interactions between people, places and things. These interactions can be modeled and visualized in a “digital twin”- a replica of a physical object or infrastructure. This twin can be leveraged to unlock new opportunities, create new efficiencies and enhance the way we run our factories, design our buildings or train our employees. Mr. Fleming will share actual case studies where immersive technologies are replacing traditional workflows and delivering results.

Simulating Tomorrow’s Solutions Using Today’s VR

Dr. Jason Jerald, CEO
Nextgen Interactions

Next-generation technologies have the potential to significantly impact society. However, by definition futuristic technologies are still at an early experimental stage and not yet ready to be used or fully tested. To propel development of upcoming tools, NextGen Interactions is utilizing a hybrid approach of integrating physical and virtual components to more efficiently test early prototypes in the context in which the products will eventually be used.

The session will cover example simulations, technical analysis of the technologies needed for such implementations, and challenges in integrating multiple technologies together. The talk will serve as an inspiration for attendees’ own use cases where there are less constraints than for consumer VR.
