|2015 Eastside Leadership Conference|
Fast Forward to the Future!
Each year the Eastside Leadership Conference focuses on opportunity and the confluences of science, technologies and really smart people. These disruptive technologies and outside of the box thinkers are sparking the transformation of exciting industries and creating new marketplace clusters. The Eastside and the Puget Sound region are fortunate to be the center of these innovations.
At the 2015 Conference, we highlighted the emerging industries of Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. It’s expected that these industries will represent over $150 billion dollars annually and will disrupt mobile by 2020. Virtual Reality isolates the user from the real world and works well in video gaming and social networking in virtual environments. Augmented Reality blends both real life and virtual reality. Users are able to interact with the virtual contents in the real world. While this has started in the gaming world, we will see many applications that connect to the workplace and our daily lives.
We also heard about the Internet of Things and the Rise of Machines that will change the way we access information – it will be accessed for us. What might that free us up to do and to be? It’s a fascinating look at the possibilities. We invite you to explore the Power Point presentations and videos and yes, offer your feedback. We hope gain critical insights on how to integrate, respond, and adapt to the disruptive forces changing our world and to use these ideas to help shape our future!
