Use of Immersive Technology (XR) in Education and Workforce Development
Hear from a panel of experts that have successfully implemented immersive technology as part of the education and workforce development process. You will see how it doesn’t replace face-to-face learning but enhances the process. You will learn about certain types of training and skills development that deliver better outcomes and results by applying immersive technology. You will leave with specific ideas and strategies that you can apply in your own workplace environment.
Use of Immersive Technology in Social Causes
Experience how immersive technology is being used to improve life and environments from the youngest individuals to seniors in assisted living. As smart cities evolve, and we continue to become a global society this technology will become integrated into all aspects of society. It will help to level the playing field.
Use of Immersive Technology in Manufacturing
Manufacturing 3.0, Industry 4.0, and Smart Manufacturing continue to evolve and impact how factories, warehouses, and distribution operations will function going forward. As in other aspects of business, immersive technology is becoming a part of this evolution as well. How individuals are trained and interact with the environment, and others around the world are all part of how immersive technology can be used.
