In an age of information, attention is our scarcest resource.  We are constantly bombarded with sound bytes, images, headlines, and more.  Whether numb to the cacophony or overwhelmed by it, each of us will soon find new ways to navigate the morass of data we inhabit. A fundamentally new immersive computing paradigm is emerging—and with it, new ways to learn, communicate, collaborate, and lead.

Immersive, spatial computing is poised to revolutionize business, entertainment, education, healthcare, and more. Still, the platforms that power these experiences—whether in VR or AR—have yet to coalesce around optimal user experiences and high-impact use cases remain nascent.

How do we capitalize on the potential of VR & AR?  Where do we look to understand these new technology paradigms? When should prescient leaders jump in to innovate and invest?

In this talk, I’ll share insights based on my expertise as a consultant and executive helping startups & fortune 500 companies implement VR & AR solutions; data from developers worldwide who actively build embodied VR & AR experiences; and a decade of experience as a professional dancer, choreographer, and performer.

I hope our audience will leave this talk with an understanding that immersive technology is more than glorified film and bigger than gaming. This technology upends narrative control, unleashes mosaic perspectives, and demands embodiment. Thanks to immersive technology, tiny screens that clamor for our attention give way to objects and experiences that respond to our humanity.  In VR & AR, we discover that all knowledge is contextual and interaction can be a form of art.  And when we do that, we transform not only how humans interact with information, but also how humans fundamentally understand the world.
