We are pleased to share an update on our research in 3D capture and algorithms

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, information science, transportation

We took the technology out of the studio and into a car – making Holoportation truly mobile. To accomplish this, we reduced the bandwidth requirements by 97%, while still maintaining quality. This new mobile Holoportation system greatly increases the potential applications of real-time 3D capture and transmission.

The Dangers of Quantum Computing

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, computing, quantum physics

Any technology with the word “quantum” in the name is by nature impossible for lay people to understand and even difficult for scientists to get their arms fully around. However, though its workings are mysterious, quantum science offers very useful everyday tools.

There has been a race for quantum computing for years. Part of the reason is that these devices will leave today’s computers in the dust. The other element is that planners see that current computing technology is reaching its growth limits. Quantum computing is the key to the future to them, not science fiction.

Microsoft, which Computerworld says has been researching quantum computing for more than a decade, is expanding its quantum computing efforts. It has put Todd Holmdahl, one of the people involved in the development of Kinect, HoloLens and Xbox, in charge of developing quantum hardware and software. It’s also hired professors from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands; the University of Copenhagen; ETH Zurich and University of Sydney in Australia.

Microsoft ‘doubles down’ on quantum computing hardware focus

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, computing, quantum physics

Microsoft is accelerating its efforts to make a quantum computer as it looks to a future of computing beyond today’s PCs and servers.

Microsoft has researched quantum computing for more than a decade. Now the company’s goal is to put the theory to work and create actual hardware and software.

To that effect, Microsoft has put Todd Holmdahl—who was involved in the development of Kinect, HoloLens, and Xbox—to lead the effort to create quantum hardware and software. The company has also hired four prominent university professors to contribute to the company’s research.

‘Bots’ step up for 2016 election news coverage

Posted by in categories: augmented reality, robotics/AI, virtual reality

What I don’t understand is why haven’t we seen and experienced much media news, radio, etc. enhanced and even in some cases new desk people, etc. replaced by AI technology especially with how we can emulate a person in AI tech not to mention AR/ VR technology. Could we see a Bill O’Riely, or Megan Kelly, or MSNBC, etc. replaced by AI in the coming 3 to 5 years? Most definitely radio should consider.


If you’re reading about the US election, some of that news is likely to come to you from a “bot.”

Automated systems known as “bots” or “robo-journalism” have been around for years, but they are playing a bigger role in coverage this year amid technology advances and stretched media resources.
