AR you ready?

Augmented Reality (AR) is an upcoming technology that is finding its way into our every day lives. Just look at the Ikea Place, Pokemon Go, and Google Translate apps. AR has the potential to change the way we shop, buy, do our jobs, and even the way we see our world.

A whole new future was promised when Google introduced their Google glass in 2011. Despite the possibilities, AR never lived up to its expectations. However, AR is back! Will it change the world for real this time?

I will give you a view on reality and discuss the differences between virtual, augmented, and mixed reality. We will dive into some current uses of AR and the possibilities. I will show you how easy it is to create a basic AR app. Furthermore, I will discuss some of the past and present day limitations of AR and why Machine Learning plays a big part in this.

After this talk you AR ready for the future we were promised years ago!
