The Next Wave of Computing
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are spatial computing technologies which aim to take our digital experiences into the next dimension. Like the PC and mobile waves of computing before it, AR and VR are set to change every facet of our lives, from how we work to how we play and everything in between.
In this talk, Tom Emrich, a recognized AR/VR thought leader and VP at 8th Wall, will present on the current state of augmented reality and virtual reality; highlight how these technologies are being used today; and then look ahead to where this technology is taking us in the near future.

A pioneer in this space, Tom has over a decade-long track record of running tech teams and providing strategic direction in emerging technologies for powerhouse brands and organizations.
