6 Things Vision Pro Needs Before It Can Go Mainstream

Road to VR

Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) is over, and while Vision Pro was a big focus with the announcement of its visionOS 2 update , it’s pretty clear Apple’s first mixed reality headset isn’t in a hurry to feature-match other XR headsets at this point, let alone Meta Quest 3. When Apple eventually does step down to the XR playing field with a more consumer-friendly headset though, there are a number of things would-be owners are probably hoping for that have so f

The Future of eLearning in 2022: A Sensitive Eye for Authentic Translation and Localization

Speaker: Chris Paxton McMillin, President of D3 Training Solutions

To avoid awkward and sometimes disastrous learning content, instructional designers must use authentic translation in the right context to get optimal results. For example, even a simple phrase like “got milk” translates to “are you lactating” in Mexico. Can you imagine what a straight translation might do to your course? With over 317 million people in the US and over 6.7 billion potential customers in the world, personalizing training seems logical.

Realtek Previews Platform for Sub-$100 5GbE Network Switches

Anand Tech

One of the more subtle trends at this year's Computex was that the majority of high-end motherboards now come equipped with a 5GbE network controller. At present, this might be considered a limited benefit as 5GbE and 10GbE switches and routers are still pretty expensive. But Realtek is planning on tackling the issue from both ends, as the company is preparing a hardware platform for sub-$100 5GbE switches.

Generative AI Can Write Computer Code. Will We Still Need Software Developers?

Bernard Marr

We’re seeing a wave of new generative AI tools that can write text, generate images, create music and more. Some can even write computer code, which makes sense when you think that computer code is just another type of language. From a well-known, generic tool like ChatGPT to specific AI coding tools created for developers, new tools are rapidly emerging that offer code suggestions and even write entire code.

The Biggest Fintech Trends In The Next 10 Years

Bernard Marr

If a week is a long time in politics, then ten years is an eternity in the world of technology. I often write about tech trends that will be relevant in the near to mid-term, as these are most likely to be useful to my business clients. But sometimes, it’s interesting to look a bit further ahead. Of course, it’s far harder to guess what will be important in ten years than what will be on the agenda over the next 12 months.

How To Measure AI Success In Your Organization

I believe that just about every business can benefit from AI by using it to create better products and services, drive efficiency in their operations, or improve customer experience. However, not every AI initiative businesses embark on guarantees good results.

AR/VR Simulations for Sustainable, Regenerative, Circular Cities

Speaker: Nik Gowing, Brenda Laurel, Sheridan Tatsuno, Archie Kasnet, and Bruce Armstrong Taylor
