March 6th: Minnesota Technical Symposium (MinnTS)

Joint Meeting with the Minnesota Technical Symposium (www.minnts.org

Topic: AI: Autonomous Vehicle Solutions

Speakers: Matthew Linder & Jay Hietpas

Abstract: The Virtual and Augmented Reality market reached over 5 Billion dollars last year and it’s rapidly expanding. With the estimated growth rate of over 180% and solid adoption it is becoming the next computing platform. Mike Nowak will discuss the current VR and AR ecosystem including hardware, inputs, distribution platforms and the latest content. The VR and AR ecosystem will transform education, gaming, architecture, engineering and many other disciplines. These disciplines will experience large shifts in how we create, distribute and consume information. We currently experience digital content through a two dimensional window. The Virtual and Augmented Reality gives us a fully immersive way of interacting with digital content.
