    This year, it is expected that 74% of all online traffic will be video with a combination of network broadcasters and Over The Top (OTT) content providers bringing compelling content to and through the Internet. 55% of people in the United States watch video online every day. Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter and Tumbler have launched live streaming capabilities. Twitch, the number one online gaming video platform, sees 9.7 million daily active users (DAUs), with 2 million users broadcasting live streams each month. eSports is a huge gaming draw with some companies seeing upward of 96 million monthly average users (MAUs). And we haven’t even mentioned augmented and virtual reality, yet.

    Network speed, capacity and flexibility to meet the growing demand are improving - but not fast enough and with significant needs still not being addressed. This panel will look at the challenges facing getting video to and from end users including: how to manage the need to deliver to both broadcast and OTT; how to ensure seamless customer experiences; what to expect as 4K and higher resolution cameras become ubiquitous; what network buildout and optimization need to take place to ensure the demand for ultra high speed broadband is met.

  • Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech
    Going Beyond His/tory: The Female Storytellers Shaping Immersive Tech Luciana Carvalho, VR Evangelist Apr 25 2017 12:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Humans have shared gathered around and communicated through stories throughout history. Text, pictures, images and videos have sought to capture our imagination, or portray the non-fictional in a relatable way. Now, as we move beyond the 2D flat screen to new ways of interacting/communicating with the world — virtual and augmented reality, for example — we begin to see the power of immersion in storytelling, and the impact it has, beyond anything we have ever seen, on those in the receiving end. Arguably, the ultimate empathy machine.

    As we shape the next 'Information Age', and given the state of the world today, never before have we been in more need of putting ourselves in other people’s shoes, and empowering diverse and inclusive voices worldwide. Never before have we seen more women jump at the opportunity to lead and make content that is all-encompassing, that touches and inspires, and that aims to build bridges not walls. Here is their story.

    Learner, maker, systems thinker, innovator and tech evangelist, Luciana splits her time between growing the Realities Centre London — a new innovation space, incubator and academy for B2B/enterprise VR, AR, MR and AI — and Unfold UK, promoting women/diversity in future in the UK. Passionate about VR and tech for good, she carries ongoing research on the possibilities and challenges immersive tech presents as re neuroscience, empathy and female empowerment.

    She was elected one of Code First Girls ‘25 Ones to Watch’, 'Top 5 Female Role Models in the Tech Industry', and Virtual Perceptions' 'Heroes of VR' in 2016.

    Augmented & Mixed Reality: Who is Watching Whom? Monique J. Morrow, CTO, Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder, Humanized Internet Apr 25 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    A mixed-reality world driven by intelligent systems would have to be observing behavior and sensing physical phenomena continuously in order to provide individuals with appropriate content. Is that a sensible trade-off or a dance with the devil?

    Does the sensing possible with these technologies allow for ways to level the playing field or does it exacerbate existing power inequities? If the AI-enabled world of the future is monetized with personal data, then surveillance might well be baked into the system, but the ethical issues we see today will only be amplified in an immersive environment.

    Join this discussion with Monique Morrow, CTO & Chief Technology Strategist, President & Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, for an in-depth look at what a true MR/AR/VR world means.

  • Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise
    Why AR/VR Will Disrupt Productivity and Collaboration in the Enterprise John Nall, CEO, Appzion Apr 26 2017 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Enterprise is the best starting or entry point for AR and VR because the pain points are high, the dollars are there to make a strong ROI case for use, and the wearable form factor is much less of an issue. AR and VR technologies will be instrumental in closing the skill gap that is responsible for the shortage of skilled manufacturing workers. We are optimistic that industrial productivity will grow and that this will ultimately translate into higher wages because AR and VR will allow more workers to do high-skill jobs, and improve their performance.
