Leuven MindGate MashUp Webinars

General info

The idea is to bring to life the very heart of the Leuven MindGate mission: cross-overs and strength through collaboration.

We'll pick a theme - something our members have brought to our attention - an give YOU the opportunity to get together with members of the Leuven ecosystem to exchange ideas, experience, and solutions with each other. You will bring the content, talking about your issues and past experiences - both positive and negative - as well as asking and answering each other's questions. Each session will have a moderator to keep things on track. The most technical themes will have an expert in the room who can answer more in-depth questions.

Max. 20 people per MashUp.
1 participant per company.

Free for Leuven MindGate members
€30 for non-members

What: Spatial Computing

Experts: Bert Waltniel (Bazookas)

“Spatial Computing is a paradigm, by bringing together different emerging technologies. It is not just about the well-known Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), it goes far beyond that. It offers so much more through combining AR and VR with technologies such as computer vision, machine learning, 5G and many more! What a time to be a alive, isn’t it?

All these technologies together offer alluring opportunities such as the use of 5G and edge computing to push intensive virtual experiences to smaller wearables. Another example is the use of 360° camera’s, robotics and haptic feedback to provide users with a virtual presence at real events or real places, expanding our experience in places that may not be accessible.

These, and so many other examples will be discussed during the mashup so don't hesitate to register!
