Putting the digital universe to work: augmented reality and digital twins in Industry 4.0

Digital twins and augmented reality can be used for simulating physical objects and processes.  This can be especially helpful for improving their design to better ensure the dependability of infrastructure and operations where lives might be at stake.  With the use of such digital realities, one can also create a competitive edge to improve efficiency and advance capabilities.

Join us for 30 minutes for the next GEDI Exchange webinar featuring Glove Systems and EXO Insights, as they discuss augmented reality and putting the digital universe to work in Industry 4.0. 
If you have a few extra minutes, there will also 10 minutes of audience Q&A after the 30-minute discussion

(This slightly altered and lengthened format is based on audience feedback.)

Join us as we sit down with some of the best and brightest to discuss innovation of today and tomorrow!

More than ever, our society and economy needs innovation to thrive and stride into the future.  Fortunately, at the University of Waterloo and in its surrounding ecosystem, we have many of Canada's leading enterprises working on and succeeding at doing just that.  Some are established and transforming rapidly to lead in the world around us.  Others are new, you’ve likely never heard of them before, but are the bright sparks we need to shine light on our path forward.
At UWaterloo, we created the GEDI Exchange to bring these bright sparks together to start a fire: to pool ideas, find ways to cooperate and collaborate, to solve problems better, to address new markets and customers … in short, to get something cooking.  It really is a race out there to find the best ideas and innovators, and to team up with them.  Tune into this webinar series to find out who they are, what they do, and get connected with them.

We’ll keep it short too: these days we’re all in many webinars.  So just 30 minutes for our GEDI Exchange members and ecosystem partners to present their viewpoints and new ideas.  If you have 10 minutes extra minutes, there’s also 10 minutes of audience Q&A after that
