06-07.May Virtual Forum

Unlimited Realities

Videos are now available!


   6 May '21

10:00 AM (CEST)
Welcome and greetings


Our interaction with e-realities until today has been limited to two dimensions: audio and video.
The recent advancements in the tech development in the area of the HMI has shown the potentiality to introduce additional senses, like smells, active & passive touch, and tastes.
This is the Internet of Senses.

KEYNOTE
Virtual reality is far from dead

'VR is dead' is one of the biggest myths out there, usually perpetuated by referencing forecast consumer sales of headsets that failed to meet expectations. Why don't we take a data-driven approach? Instead of relying on future predictions, let's look back at the past hundred years and see how long it took other technologies to be adopted - and how virtual reality compares.

KEYNOTE
Virtual Reality is dead - the future is 6G SR

In this keynote, I discuss the future of immersive technologies. Notably, I lay the case for why Virtual Reality has little future compared to the other amazing technologies emerging over past months. I introduce a few of such novel technologies, such as 5G/6G, and – how in combination with edge-cloud rendering and AI – it will revolutionise the way we interact and engage. An example application is also given, i.e. the Internet of Skills we are pioneering at King’s which will democratise talent the same way as the Internet has democratised information.

KEYNOTE
The Future of the 4Ps – How will the future of the Creative Person, Product, Process & Press change communication

Admittedly, it is not easy to find a definition of creativity. There are many aspects that should be considered and illuminated. What makes a creative person? What a creative product? Is there an ideal creative environment? Creativity manifests itself in many ways and makes it difficult to agree on a universal definition or explanation.Those who, like me, strive for a more holistic approach will appreciate the work of Mel Rhodes, founder of the 4P definition of creativity.To this day it can be deduced that his original model is still valid from a conceptual and structural point of view and can be regarded as "a system that enables researchers and scientists to study smaller, manageable units of the complex concept of creativity". I use his model to reflect on the question: How will the future of the Creative Person, Product, Process & Press change human-human communication?

His professional interests are AI, human-machine interaction (HCI) and Artificial Empathy (AE),emotional and behavioral analysis, and I’m a big fan of bio-hacking and human augmentation.

12:34 PM (CEST)

KEYNOTE
Internet of Senses is coming… in 10 months not in 10 years

We all enjoy 5 human senses in everyday life: we drink aromatic coffee, caress our pets, feel rain on our faces and inhale beautiful scent of rose bouquet. But what if we can transmit these senses over oceans to reach dearest people miles away? This is not a sci-fi theory, this is happening now! Thanks to the modern technologies (which someone may call futuristic) we are able not only transmit senses, but also have an embodiment experience to feel fully the world around us. In his talk, Fabrizio will share his vision about the Internet of Senses and its application to extend our physical reality to unlimited ones and the importance of stimuli-transmition for people with physical limitations.

Omnivergence - Towards the Advent of HXR

Omnivergence, a term coined by myself as inspired by the work of Richard Buckminster Fuller, is an attempt to explain why and how through the evolution, from Atari games to the latest VR game, there seems to be a clue as to where we are headed. Technologies collide, merge, emerge, diverge and converge. The world as a representation is the stage.



Jeremy Dalton
XR4ALL

Bio: XR4ALL is an initiative by the European Commission to strengthen the European XR industry. The XR4ALL project is a “Coordination and Support Action (CSA)” of the “Horizon 2020 (H2020)” Programme”, the largest EU Research and Innovation programme (2014-2020) to date, aimed at providing breakthroughs, discoveries, and world-firsts. XR4ALL started on 1 December 2018 and has a duration of 33 months. Check XR4ALL website

3:10 PM (CEST)

KEYNOTE
Moving the European XR industry forward

Started in 2018 within the framework of the EU Horizon Europe program, the XR4ALL project will end in August 2021 and give birth to XR4EUROPE, a new pan-European association that will federate all the XR professionals and initiatives in order to support the development, promote and represent the XR innovation, industry and creativity “made in Europe”. It also aims to tackle the fragmentation of XR on the continent in order to foster innovation and creativity. After a presentation of the results of the XR4ALL project and how XR4EUROPE will continue with its mission, several European partners of the project and co-founders of the new association will answer your questions and share their vision of XR in Europe.

KEYNOTE
Wie wird die Zukunft der 4P die Mensch-zu-Mensch-Kommunikation verändern?

Zugegeben, es ist nicht leicht, eine einzige Definition von Kreativität zu finden. Es gibt viele Aspekte, die berücksichtigt und beleuchtet werden sollten. Was macht eine kreative Person aus? Was ist kreatives Produkt? Gibt es ein ideales kreatives Umfeld? Kreativität manifestiert sich auf viele Arten und macht es schwierig, sich auf eine universelle Definition oder Erklärung zu einigen. Diejenigen, die wie ich einen ganzheitlicheren Ansatz anstreben, werden die Arbeit von Mel Rhodes, dem Begründer der 4P-Definition von Kreativität, zu schätzen wissen. Bis heute lässt sich ableiten, dass sein ursprüngliches Modell aus konzeptioneller und struktureller Sicht immer noch gültig ist und als "ein System angesehen werden kann, das es Forschern und Wissenschaftlern ermöglicht, kleinere, überschaubare Einheiten des komplexen Kreativitätskonzepts zu untersuchen". In der Q&A; Session werden wir folgender Frage nachgehen: Wie wird die Zukunft der 4P die Mensch-zu-Mensch-Kommunikation verändern?

Left Out of the New World: Exploring Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is unfolding right now; it's already changed our lives, and it's set to change everything else in ways that are hard to imagine. The world as we know it is transforming with incredible speed into a new technological landscape — one that is filled with potential… and challenges. As we move forward into this new era of technology, where machines can learn from themselves, can communicate with one another, and understand our every word, we must ask ourselves: How are we preparing ourselves for this? What do these changes mean for us and our societies? How will the Fourth Industrial Revolution work for us and include all people that occupy the planet? In his segment, Kieran will explore these questions and answer why equitable and inclusive practices must be built into the new world’s social fabric and the consequences of inaction.
