AR/VR for Social Good

Aug 3rd
20:00 - 21:00

Do you want to learn more about AR/VR (Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality) and all its possible applications for social good?

Together with Epson, we will discuss examples of how AR and VR can be used to create a positive social impact and to mitigate the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Epson is a leading company in AR technology, and developped the Moverio glasses which have already been used to tackle social and environmental issues.

Experts from various fields will be invited to reflect on the role of this technology in the future. The event will start with a presentation of the possible applications of the Moverio glasses, followed by a panel discussion and questions from the public.

The event will be fully online and streamed on our Facebook page.
