The Future of Training: Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality

There is increased interest in immersive content to revolutionise training across the creative industries, manufacturing and beyond. By transporting people, immersive training can replicate dangerous scenarios, improve career skills and account for implicit biases. The Future of Training showcase will shine a light on immersive companies creating engaging and innovative content to revolutionise the way we train.

You’ll hear from a wide-range of speakers and companies who have created content that demonstrate the potential of training, using Immersive Technologies. These will include Clicks + Links, SmartDS, Mativision and Daden, with more names to be added.

Clicks and Links specialises in immersive technology. It has been focusing on bringing the exciting potential of VR to new industries. The organisation has carried out virtual inspection work with infrastructure projects in rail and nuclear decommissioning and has developed a range of immersive training experiences.

Daden’s Trainingscapes VR is an authoring tool for immersive VR training content that lets educators create and share engaging, effective and informative training through 3D lessons and experiences. Content can be accessed through 3D, VR (such as Oculus Rift), smartphones and tablet computers.

London based Mativision has produced immersive experiences for global brands since 2012. The company is the world leader in VR-Live streaming. Its clients come from live entertainment to enterprise training and medical education, and include Facebook, Google, Samsung, FOX, MTV, Universal, Warner Bros, Vodafone, Unilever.

SmartDS believes that technology can empower and enrich peoples’ lives. By using holograms in mixed reality, it delivers safer, more effective training and visualisation tools at a lower cost for clients in sectors as diverse as engineering, health, pharmaceutical, training, insurance, education and leisure.

This event forms part of Digital Catapult’s Future of Training showcase running from November 2018 to March 2019. It is the second event in the series following on from the original conference in London.
