VRevolution with Sergey Tkachenko (HumanIT), Artur Sychov (Somnium Space), Karel Hulec (NeosVR) and Konrad Gill (ViARsys) at TCE2019 Prague

VRevolution – The Time for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality is now, engaging panel discussion at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

A 2016 report release by a well-respected industry research firm, Statista, painted a rather rosy picture for the global augmented (“AR”) and virtual reality (“VR”) segments. The report stated that: “In 2022, the augmented and virtual reality market is expected to reach a market size of $209.2 billion U.S. dollars.”

Alongside AI and automation, virtual reality (VR) and its closely related cousin augmented reality (AR) have been touted for several years now as technologies likely to have a profoundly transformative effect on the way we live and work.

new report in 2019 from Zion Market Research, actually gave the AR and VR global markets a higher than expected valuation: “… at around USD $26.7 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach approximately USD $814.7 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 63.01% between 2019 and 2025.” So it appears that the markets are exceeding prior expectations.  The AR and VR markets are usually grouped together but there are differences in the AR and VM technologies themselves. Each has a strong market share on its own but can also be used in conjunction, which is called augmented virtuality (“AV”), according to PC Magazine. 

PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, will take the pulse of the industry and by bringing together VR/AR experts of from the CEE region, will highlight the main opportunities and recent development.

The panel discussion is strategically titled “VRevolution – The Time for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality is now” and will examine the following topics:

– AR and VR increasingly enhanced with AI

– AR and VR in marketing, sales, and games

– VR and AR will increasingly be used in training and teaching

– Consumer Entertainment VR hits the mainstream

– VR and AR environments becoming increasingly collaborative and social

– AR increasingly finding its way into vehicles

Reading Time: 1 minute

 

Software release expert will present a keynote session at PICANTE TECH Conference Europe 2019.

 

If you search online, you will find that continuous integration, continuous deployment, and continuous delivery are like vectors that have the same direction, but different magnitude. Their goal is the same: make our software development and release process faster and more robust.

The key difference between the three is in the scope of automation applied. What gets people who are new to the field confused is that they are not mutually exclusive, but include each other, like Russian dolls.

At PICANTE TECH Conference Europe (TCE2019), which will take place in Prague on the 3rd of September at Vienna House Andel’s Prague, you can hear more about the subject in a special keynote which will be presented by Matt Beaney, Service Transition at AutoTrader UK.

Matt has overseen Service Transition at AutoTrader UK for over 10 years, driving continual improvement of the release success rate from 85% to 99.8% and increasing the release rate from <600 to 15,000 per year. In Prague, he will tell you all about CD is right for you and your company.
