Synopsis

Slipping on a pair of Augmented Reality (AR) specs can give you superpowers in the workplace, superimposing procedural guides and operational data directly where you need it. AR can teach you in minutes all you need to know for complex tasks, such as how to service the nose-wheel of an airplane, how to operate an ultrasound machine to obtain a healthcare diagnosis, or how to check and service a self-driving vehicle - on Mars.

This talk will provide a preview of what can be achieved in the training space with AR Holograms, which offer an enhanced, location-based experience for learners with the promise to get access to expert knowledge faster, better, and - through AR - more engaging than ever before. Better engagement means more effective education and training which translates real social and economic benefits to the market, and perhaps even your market.
