VR/AR Chicago - Stage - 2019.01.16

What’s The Format:

5:30-6:00 – Demos and Networking
6:00-6:30 – Introductions.
6:30-7:30 – Panel Discussion and Q&A
7:30-8:15 – Networking & Demos
8:15-8:30 – Cleanup and Good Bye

We start with informal networking and technology demonstrations, then host a panel discussion to answer audience questions, and we end with more networking and technology demonstrations. The conversation will start with a primary topic, but ultimately take us wherever it goes. We keep it simple and informal – this MeetUp is about you, our members, and not the host or presenters. Come and try some new technology, get your questions answered, and take your next step in XR Technology.

03/06/2019 – About the Topic

Humans learn by doing. Simulation – placing a person in the context of a situation, to teach them how to respond -has been part of industrial training from the beginning. Pilots spend days in simulators before ever taking charge of commercial jets, because simulation presents an opportunity to place the pilot in a situation that would be too dangerous or expensive to replicate in the real world. Virtual reality and augmented reality present the opportunity to deliver simulation training at scale, and across industries. Current use cases include subject matter as varied as handling sensitive human resources issues, emergency response to a chemical spill, and doctors training on a new procedure. Come learn from pioneers in the industry that are currently delivering VR and AR training capabilities.
