Humans forget 80% of what they learn after 30 days. 2 million manufacturing jobs will go unfulfilled due to skills gaps. 90% of megaprojects go over budget. So while technology has brought great gains to business productivity over the last 30 years, there is much more that can and needs to be done to meet customer requirements. This is particularly notable for first line workers, who have traditionally been underserved by tech.
Since releasing HoloLens in 2016 as the world’s first untethered, holographic computer that you wear, we have been working deeply with customers to understand what real, transformative solutions are. Through substantive learning’s, we have a clarity of what scenarios are driving the biggest impacts today – such as 25% productivity gains, 100% skills retention increases and 100% first time right benefits. For these scenarios, we believe it’s critical that all customers can get value “out of the box” through both Microsoft and our Mixed Reality Partner applications.
Clear and long-term benefits on ROI have been demonstrated with AR Proof of Concepts. Now the industry requires interoperability to take AR to the next level.
To that effect, the Industry Specification Group (ISG) ARF under ETSI is developing an interoperability framework for AR components, systems and services.
The modular reference architecture developed by the group will be presented during this session highlighting building blocks required to build an AR system and achieve interoperability at the interface of these building blocks.
The session will also give an overview of the standards landscape for AR with a report due to be published before summer 2019 analyzing the standardization work related to AR in various standards setting organizations and fora.
