Augmentir recently participated in the 2020 ARIA Leadership Summit at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA. The AR in Action (ARIA) Leadership Summit featured live presentations from inventors, innovators, integrators, investors, and other executives that are experts in the industry. The summit focused on the latest advancements in augmented reality, and how AR and other technologies will shape the industry in 2020 and beyond.

Augmentir’s Chris Kuntz presented on “The Rise of the Augmented Worker: How AI and AR are Shaping the Future of Work.” This presentation showcased a unique use of artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) in the manufacturing sector, and how AI is being used to intelligently close the skills gap and transform the frontline workforce of the future. The combination of AI and AR will allow us to provide the next generation of connected workers with AI-driven, visual guidance that will continuously improve work outputs and ultimately lead to the exponential productivity gains industrial companies are looking for.

Here is a recording of the presentation.

Enterprise Augmented and Mixed Reality (AR/MR) have made great leaps in assisting frontline workers across different industries by delivering information via wearable devices. However, creating sustainable value with AR/MR, which goes beyond the one-time gains in productivity, remains a key challenge for most companies.

At Augmentir, we believe that it’s time to stop taking an isolated look at AR/MR and instead focus on the combination of these technologies with Artificial Intelligence (AI). Only the combination of these technologies will allow us to provide workers with AI-driven, visual guidance that will continuously improve work outputs and ultimately lead to the exponential productivity gains industrial companies are looking for.

The AR for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) is the only global, membership-funded non-profit alliance dedicated to helping accelerate the adoption of Enterprise Augmented Reality (AR) by supporting the growth of a comprehensive ecosystem. We support innovative companies aspiring to invest in AR technology who need a better understanding of the tools available, application possibilities, methods of implementation and return on investment.

In this presentation, Augmentir CEO & Co-Founder, Russ Fadel, explains how AI-enriched AR/MR experiences allow organizations to:

  • Empower frontline workers with personalized and dynamic work instructions to perform at their peak productivity
  • Close the skills gap by capturing tribal knowledge from experts and making that knowledge a scalable corporate asset
  • Deliver AI-based insights and recommendations based on human worker data to help drive continuous improvement across the entire organization – from operations to training to quality.

This webinar was hosted in partnership with AREA and Russ Fadel, Co-Founder and CEO of Augmentir.
