The Digital Transformation of Workers’ Realities

Presented by

Michael Thomas

About this talk

Through all industrial revolutions, tools and machinery have been part of workers’ realities. Only relatively recently have IoT technologies digitized these realities. When those digital streams are properly analyzed with streaming analytics and artificial intelligence and then rendered with augmented reality (AR), workers’ realities can be digitally transformed into intelligent realities. An AR headset can provide workers with the most relevant diagnostic information while keeping their hands free. On walk arounds, they can see digital twin information overlaying and annotating the physical twin; and remote experts can use virtual reality (VR) along with flat screen virtual worlds to advise the proximate workers. Regardless of the reality technology involved, intelligent realities can make work better by making workers’ realities better. This presentation furthers the intelligent reality concept developed in two papers last year, Artificial and Human Intelligence with Digital Twins and Intelligent Realities For Workers Using Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Beyond.
