GS04 Mirrorworld: How AR Will Transform Learning and Life
11:15 AM - 12:30 PM Thursday, June 27
'Mirrorworld' is the term Kevin Kelly (a well-known futurist) uses to describe augmented reality as the next great technology platform. It represents a fundamental shift in how our society will consume, engage with, and interact with our digital duplicates. But what does this shift mean for training and education? In order to understand augmented reality in the context of learning, we first must understand what has held AR back, what this future vision looks like, what must be overcome, and what milestones to look out for.
In this closing keynote, Reuben Tozman will explore the near and long-term impacts of augmented reality on the future of life, work, and learning. Using his unique experience in both the learning and AR technology industries, Tozman will share examples of how augmented reality is being used by organizations today, and how organizations will transform themselves via AR in the future. This closing keynote will help you discover the possibilities AR can open up for you and your organization.
