SXSW 2023

Adapting XR for the Future of the Workforce


Discussing the explosion of XR, and as with any emerging tech; how it eventually applies to the real world functions of life at work and at home. Will some never want to take the oculus off? Will the advantages of being constantly virtual and immersive, outweigh the disadvantages? How will this affect our society as a whole, either as a boon and as a bane? The panel we've chosen is rich in understanding of the subject, has proven pedigree and are all smack dab in the middle of it. It should be a fascinating conversation.
