The Age of Light: From an Electronic to a Photonic Society

Room B1

AR/VR will transform our collective imagination and intelligence with curated reality that seamlessly blends the virtual and the real. But, if more than a small minority of people are to have access to next gen, high bandwidth AR/VR experiences, new smart photonic approaches must be applied not only to next gen displays but also to the whole AR/VR pipeline from network, device, to experience. This talk will look at the future of AR/VR and photonics. Can we bring AR/VR superpowers to everyone? How will the shift to spatial, experiential communications transform our ideas of imagination, intelligence, and reality?
