Tech Feast | Augmented Reality - How will AR evolve in the next 5 years?
'Tech Feast’ is the new 90-minute lunch event that will leave you smarter about technologies that are impacting (y)our world. In the first series, we’re going to be exploring AI, Web3 and augmented reality with a special guest, and because it's Fora, tasty food and drink will be provided to wash down the insights. There’s also a practical surprise at each one - the first one is getting your devices professionally cleaned.
Hosted by Paul Armstrong, Founder of TBD Conference and author of ‘Disruptive Technologies’, each Tech-fast has three parts, the welcome, the talk and the fun bit. Each is as sit back or lean-in as you’d like. Everyone will get a ‘paracetamol card’, these are to write down what makes your head hurt on. We urge you to ask the questions you’ve always wanted. We know not everyone wants to put their hands up too so there will be a question box too.
Know the next tech battleground is your face
Voice-smoyce. Whether contacts, glasses or goggles, the next era of computing will be on your face and it will change how you perceive the world around you. A huge shift that few are really prepared for. Realising the ability to stand out, blend in and be blocked has never been more real should which should motivate any company out there.
Paul will be joined by Will Scougal, EMEA Director, Strategy Studio. In 2015 Will joined Snapchat to build and lead the creative strategy team outside North America. Prior to Snapchat, Will was Head of Brand Strategy at Twitter where created award winning work at the forefront of data led and real-time marketing.
Since joining Snapchat, Will has helped establish the platform's global presence and his team has helped brands pioneer new and innovative ways to drive business results by building campaigns with augmented reality and vertical video at their heart. Will believes that Augmented Reality is the most exciting drivers of culture to come along since film, and that the camera is a place where people choose to spend time with brands.
