  • Exploring Mobile VR: Insights and Strategy Exploring Mobile VR: Insights and Strategy David Mullett, Virtual Reality Content Innovator, Virtualize: david@virtualizevr.com Recorded: Nov 30 2016 36 mins
    Mobile VR is going to be far and away the largest market for virtual reality in both the immediate term and as the VR market expands. This is where VR is going to come in and disrupt entrenched competition in the digital landscape. Currently less than 1% of PCs worldwide are powerful enough to run the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, so producing VR for low end hardware specs on Mobile VR is going to be the best strategy for accessing large numbers of consumers. 5G and expanding wifi is going to explode current bandwidth limitations and be the backbone for next generation Mobile VR experiences. Together with the new WebVR format, 5G and Mobile VR will be the place to build your disruptive VR application and open up a whole new realm of solution, acquisition, and engagement. Through social VR, sharing, avatars, and solutions-based VR, Mobile VR is going to be the brand of VR that changes the world. What can you build in VR that has the same value, or more value, than non-VR applications?
  • Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Augmented Construction: How Virtual Environments are Impacting the Physical Rob Charlton, CEO, Space Group & Adam Ward, Director, BIM Technologies Recorded: Nov 30 2016 48 mins
    In an age of perpetual advancing technology, it’s often difficult to keep up with what’s going to be the “next big thing”.

    Traditional construction methods are fast being overtaken by modern building processes, and what we’re now terming; digital construction.

    As industry innovators, we’re championing the leap from digital construction to augmented construction. There is scope for augmented reality to play a major role in helping construction teams in the field understand how various systems and components fit together during production. But more importantly, it can facilitate a route for architects to take their designs into a virtual environment before the high risk move to construction.

    The current process for a structure is that it is designed in 3D, transferred to 2D documents and then built in a virtual

    3D format. The transition from 3D to 2D and back again can often lead to errors, therefore, what if we could cut this middle step out altogether?

    Just imagine being able to put on an AR headset and see exactly which line on a 2D construction document corresponds to a given object, such as a section of pipe or cable network. Being able to bring drawings into a physical model, giving a sense of scale, proportion, form and space.

    In this webinar, we’ll take you through the following:

     What is Augmented Construction

     Technological advancements and what benefits they bring to the industry

     How to use AR effectively

     What role does data play in this?

     Example projects, who’s using this now

     The next step

  • Understanding Strategies for VR/AR in Business – Methods and Cases Understanding Strategies for VR/AR in Business – Methods and Cases Prof. Mark Skilton, Warwick Business School & Strategic Leader in Digital Strategy, enzen Recorded: Nov 29 2016 49 mins
    The session will explore how this rapidly developing area of VR / AR / Mixed Reality and its position and convergence in the areas of advanced Customer Experience, Digital Asset Management and new A.I. led augmentation strategies starting to transform processes and experience.

    We introduce a novel approach to framing digital spaces and how to measure Augmented impact on performance metrics and then explore how this is further developing into A.I. Intelligent spaces and what this may mean for Business Operating Models and future work automation design in what is described as Intelligent Business Strategy.

    We include a few actual cases studies of how Cyber-physical systems driving “Digital Twins” are extending across processes and changing supply chain feedback and interaction for smart energy, smart design and new knowledge capabilities.
  • Hacking the Brain: Unlocking the power of NeuroVR Hacking the Brain: Unlocking the power of NeuroVR Luciana Carvalho Se, Chief Evangelist, Racefully & Founder SE3 Solutions Recorded: Nov 29 2016 48 mins
    Can immersive reality actually help us better understand each other? Understand ourselves? How does human cognitive processing change, or become enhanced, once VR and AR are added to the mix?

    What does that mean for our (future) sense of self? What is the impact of literally ‘putting oneself in somebody else’s shoes’ and what that means for human empathy?

    Exploring recent findings on the treatment of phobias, PTSD and mental health issues using VR, and theories around the virtual-physical illusion of presence, this webinar asks how neuroscience has been affected and/or advanced by the development of immersive tech.

    Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to being with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position.

  • The Case for Security Awareness Training The Case for Security Awareness Training Stu Sjouwerman, Founder and CEO of KnowBe4 Recorded: Nov 8 2016 30 mins
    Ask a security expert what the most vulnerable cog in the security wheel is and they will tell you it is the user. A company with the most detailed policies and procedures and best-in-class security hardware and software is still vulnerable if a user decides to take an action potentially compromises data, such as copying a confidential file to a thumb drive to work on it at home, opening a spearphishing email and clicking on the attachment, or deciding to check out their favorite YouTube channel from a workstation attached to the corporate network.

    This 20/20 webcast looks at necessity for on-going security awareness training, how it can be incorporated into the workday, and the kinds of user activities that can be changed through such training.
  • The LifeCycle of Engagement of Girls and Women in Tech The LifeCycle of Engagement of Girls and Women in Tech Tracey Welson-Rossman, Founder of TechGirlz & Cristina Martin Greysman, Sr. Director, Partner Experience at Sungard AS Recorded: Nov 3 2016 46 mins
    At TechGirlz, we've spent the last decade peeling back the onion and found that role models in the workforce will not fix the problem, mentors will not fix the problem, improving the pipeline at college or even high school will not fix the problem. Techgirlz has identified that by engaging girls in technology in middle school via curriculum designed to inspire these girls and delivered by members of the industry, we can actually make headway on increasing girls and eventually women in technology.

    However, what happens when we inspire a generation of young girls to consider technology as a career but don't have a plan to keep them engaged? Once the fire has been lit, how are we planning to keep these girls interested as they weave their way through high school, college and the start of their careers to ensure that these efforts are not wasted.

    In the first half of this talk, Tracey Welson-Rossman, founder of TechGirlz, will discuss the TechGirlz methodology that has successfully lit the technology fire in over 5000 middle school girls. The second half of the talk, presented by Cristina Martin Greysman, Sr. Director, Partner Experience at Sungard Availability Services, will focus on ideas for keeping these girls in the tech pipeline throughout for their entire careers.
