In this keynote, Ori Inbar reviews the impact AR technologies will have on the way we live, work, shop, learn and play. He will explore how AR is poised to enable Engineers designing with Sensors to advance human-centric applications going forward and will provide ample examples.


1) Democratizing Knowledge: Thanks to ubiquitous sensors and AR visualization, anyone, especially engineers, will have access to the world’s best information resources and experts - all within their field of view - to improve any task they perform in their life and work.

2) Economic growth: AR will drive economic growth by improving productivity and efficiency, as well as helping upskill workers and engineers who's jobs have been commoditized by automation.

3) Healthcare to everyone: Expert healthcare providers combined with advanced Intelligent Computer Vision systems will treat patients in underserved areas, and lift health levels across the world.

4) Empathy and Collaboration: Based on emotion sensors and communication technologies - engineers will reach a new level of collaboration and empathy to achieve better outcomes. Like minded folks around the world will be able to collaborate and solve issues as if they are in the same room. 

5) Sustainability to the people: Thanks to AR’s ability to simulate things that aren’t apparent in reality, the spread of sensors and AR technologies will reduce the need to manufacture hardware, reducing energy consumption and promoting sustainability
