Mixing Augmented Reality with Artificial Intelligence

Hi!

In this short video I talk about:

1. The future of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
2. Why AR/VR data is very useful for Artificial Intelligence
3. AR vs. VR in our current life concept (i.e. living in a real world without prevalence of life simulations)



P.S. Usually I am more “normal” and stay away from these topics :=)

Best regards,

Virtual Reality is just a Subtrend of Augmented Reality… in Our Current “Life Concept“

In 2015-2016 I have been observing a huge buzz in media around Virtual Reality (VR).

It seems that Virtual Reality is literally everywhere while Augmented Reality is receding.

But actually it is not true.

Of course, if we were planning to switch to a concept of life shown below,

the development of virtual reality technology would be a key priority.

Virtual Reality could be the Best Visual Interface for Drones

Originally published at medium.com – Virtual Reality could be the Best Visual Interface for Drones 

As you may know, there will be a rapid utilization of drones for commercial purposes (products delivery, inspections, other commercial services, etc.) in the next 2–3 years.
In order to provide services in different areas drones will require either completely autonomous navigation or manual co-piloting, meaning human labor.

For the last 3 months we have been experimenting in our lab with more natural interfaces for the manual drone control. We expect that they can minimise the risk of crashing and increase the accuracy of co-piloting due to clarity and intuitive interface, which will be based on our navigational system and SLAM SDK.

One of the most interesting and intuitive interface ideas is to use virtual reality headset together with the gesture recognition sensor(like Leap Motion):
