AR & VR Breathe Life Back Into Our Lives

AR & VR Breathe Life Back Into Our Lives

Remember the bicycles piled in the yard that showed where your friends were? What about the jingle of coins in your pocket as you headed to the arcade? Stranger Things may have recalled these distant memories, but what if you could still see bicycles piled against your neighbors’ door or listen to the jingle of coins as you played with your friends? This is Augmented Reality and its aim now is to get you off the couch, exercising, playing, and enjoying camaraderie. Ready, Player One? Five Trends to Watch As we navigate the next stage of our virtual and augmented realities, there are a few trends to watch. AR, VR, and AI Will “See” Objects - Augmented Reality (AR), combined with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Computer Vision, will help computers “see” and label what’s being seen. Machine Learning will ramp up to offer increasingly correct identification of objects whether it’s the dinosaur exhibit at the natural history museum or connects the dots for stargazing in a planetarium.VR Gets More “Real” for the Mainstream – In other words, developers are able to offer more immersive experiences. New developments in hardware technology, such as eyeball tracking and field-of-view help power the idea users can interact and explore less like a video game and more like real-life.AR Can Help Keep Your Eyes on the Road – Remember KIT? The car who talked, could self-diagnose, and navigated with barely a hand on the wheel? It’s not so far-fetched now as it once seemed as vehicle manufacturers increasingly opt for voice assistants and some begin to offer graphics’ overlay of footage around the car. Others go a step farther, projecting data onto the car windshield, assisting with navigation, lane identification, and potential hazards along the way.AR-Based Entertainment Branches Out – No more piled high pizza boxes, sitting in the dark of your parent’s basement. AR today is about getting moving; physical activity and balancing tech life with real life. Toys and Gaming companies are on the bandwagon to get families moving. Location-based gaming has grown by leaps and bounds as has interactive projection-based technology. Some applications can transform your immediate environment into an immersive gaming experience while others can transform playgrounds which, when unlocked by parents, can offer choose-your-own adventure types of projects to complete. Enter whole being of mind, body, spirit. And we’ve barely scratched the surface.Worldbuilding, Personalized Character Building, and Augmented Board Games – Each of these are about bridging the gap between the physical and digital world and is most changed when it comes to board games.  As exciting as these trends are, it’s not all fun and games when it comes to the next advances of AR. This technology is also being used to help discover early onset of Alzheimer’s and most recently has found its way into the operating room. Or at least, it will be soon as companies look to bring the AR and VR technologies into the OR. Training and Teaching with AR AR & VR technologies are being used for teaching and training in just about every industry it seems. From Walmart to the Military, business is seeing the benefits of allowing individuals to practice their roles without the associated real-world risks. But when it comes to the healthcare industry, this is where AR begins to really shine. What if we could predict not only detect early onset dementia, but catch the onset of mental illness as well? One company, recently cleared by the FDA, is working toward just that, with the specific goal of predicting Alzheimer’s early. With an estimated cost of around $290 billion which could rise to over $1 Trillion by 2050, their claims of 94% accuracy in detection 6 to 10 years early is good news for families. Memories are how we share our stories and no family wants to miss theirs. Could technology as disparate as it once made us be bringing us closer together? With these latest, that just may be the case. So, whether you want to let out your inner child, practice a new skill without real-world ramifications, or simply know your memories will be with you for a lifetime, AR offers something for everyone. Every industry. Every business. It has infused our world and is breathing life back into our lives.  Want to be the wizard behind the curtain, the Data Analyst to know what’s next, or the Data Engineer who builds the next great technological advance in the AR spectrum of services and capabilities? We may have a role for you. Check out our current vacancies or contact one of our recruitment consultants to learn more.

How Cities Are Using Big Data

How Cities Are Using Big Data

High speed trains in Florida. Driverless cars in Arizona. National grid union agreements. All these and more are working to create a more smoothly operating system of infrastructure. While privacy laws and transparency vie for attention at every level of government in the US, cities have taken the onus of using data to make decisions.   The functionality a critical infrastructure society is built on – railroad tracks, flare stacks, power lines – has been brought together by robotics and AI. The decentralization of intelligence, cloud systems which remotely control Industrial IoT, and AI are just a few of the ways in which 2019 will be a breakout year for Distributed AI. New York City Uses Data to Alleviate Damage Risk to Buildings In their race to stay ahead of Big Data, they may also find ways to improve they might never have discovered without it. New York City has limited staff who can analyze its million properties and incorporate analytics to discern fire risk considering past risk and building traits. City coding has therefore become more important than ever to alleviate potential risk.   Philadelphia Focuses on City Interaction with its Residents Evidence-based decision making has debuted in Philadelphia’s GovLabPHL, a multi-agency collaboration. Together, they are centralizing and digitizing records making information easier to share among agencies that historically kept information to themselves. With everything in one place, they can provide city services to their residents much more effectively and efficiently. Florida’s First High Speed TGV Train Rolled out late last year, this high-speed train travels from Miami to West Palm Beach with plans to branch into Orlando and Tampa soon. America’s first high speed passenger train in years will help alleviate road traffic, noise pollution, and more. Data collected may include best safety measures, business practices, and economic value to the city and its residents as money shifts from car buying to rail ticket purchases. The Ethics of Data and Potential Risk of Bias Gaining insights into human behaviors, ease of transportation, and predictive information to curb damage to buildings and other city properties are all important to a smart city’s infrastructure. But, data is, after all, input by humans and isn’t infallible; falling prey to natural biases. Researches and analysts caution decision-making from computer-based algorithms isn’t perfect and should be considered with discretion. For example, the rise in AI, face recognition software, traffic cams, and statistics currently on file may hold a prejudice against certain ethnicities based upon their developer’s biases. This is especially glaring in criminal behavior predictions and as such, policymakers need to think critically and to not take technology at face value. After all, those inputting the data are human, and our biases have a way of seeping into our information. In 2019, AI systems are no longer the robotic machines once shown in movies as something to fear. Today, vendors who build these systems must not only focus on the value provided, but also consider moral foundation of their service. It’s important to understand exactly why and how data will be collected and with whom it will be shared. As cities and businesses continue to catch up, this knowledge is necessary for long-term viability, credibility, and transparency. Trust is a crucial element of data strategy.  See Through Cities – Transparency is Key City governments and researchers are working to lessen discriminatory outcomes by turning to transparency. Major cities such as Philadelphia and New York have opened up their websites and invited the public to examine information and their methods of interpreting the data. New York implemented a task force to study how the city uses data and its goal is to present in December of this year ways the city should assess its automated decision-making for transparency, equity, and opportunity. This is a pivotal year for cities to understand their urban ecosystems. Understanding challenges such as traffic, pollution, parking and inefficiency of movement in urban areas may help realize how, when, and where people are moving. With core infrastructures in place, movement may be reduced. In addition, mobility will become efficient and lessen people’s need to move around for better jobs and/or housing. AI is the tool to help cities gain visibility into this type of data. It will enable not only visibility, but also foster prediction capabilities, and provide actionable insights to improve our understanding of why, how, and the way we move.
