About this Event

We are honored to have Charlie Fink join us to moderate this important conversation. He literally wrote the book on it! Welcome Charlie to LA!

Also added is Brian Wong from Bad VR.

Frontier technologies like the AR Cloud are so complex and evolving so rapidly, that a new form of ‘collaboration’ will be demanded. The impact on society will become so vast that teams will need to expand beyond business, technology, and design leaders to include the likes of sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, and ethics professionals. As the digital interface of the web moves out into the physical world, it will no longer belong to the traditional production team but will depend on the inclusion of architects, city planners, construction workers, data scientists, 3D artists, health professionals, and many more--collaboration will give way to the need for a symbiotic interdependence.

Join our eclectic panel of experts that are currently working to make the AR Cloud / Metaverse / Spatial Web 3.0 a reality. They will share their current projects and discuss the vital need for diverse symbiosis and interdependence among an astounding range of professionals to build a future that is inclusive and works for the benefit of all.
