As virtual- and augmented-reality technologies become more powerful and more commonplace, the question arises: how can you use them to enhance your workplace?
It should be an intriguing talk, as Rosstin will present his research on using AR to visualize, analyze, and manipulate big data in the workplace. His goal is to use AR to augment the data scientist's toolbox, and improve the speed and depth of their analyses.
Even if you aren't a data analyst, his talk is worth checking out because (in addition to his insight on AR uses) his work exploring VR interaction in a business context reveals objective challenges with using VR to improve work productivity.
As Rosstin will speak to, that includes challenges like the time cost of switching between VR gear and mouse+keyboard, juggling a 3D virtual environment alongside conventional 2D desktop interfaces, and choosing the right hardware controller model and 3D interaction algorithms.
