Goldman Sachs is calling virtual and augmented reality “the next generation computing platform.” “We think this technology has the potential to transform how we interact with almost every industry today, and we think it will be equally transformative both from a consumer and an enterprise perspective”. “At the end of the day we think VR and AR will be as transformation as the smartphone market.”
OPEN has assembled a panel of VR experts from VR headset provider, VR investor to Cinematic VR Content producers to discuss this disruptive technology and its applications.
Questions that will be addressed are:
– What is VR and AR? – Describing the categories of technologies that exist, and the major technology differences
– What are some of the leading companies in this space – big and small – and what are they doing that is particularly interesting?
– what are the most likely near term applications of VR? When and where does it stop being a bleeding edge technology and start becoming an integrated part of life and business?
– What is the long term evolution of VR and AR and its impact on society? – Are we headed towards the Matrix or some other apocalyptic vision of the world?
