Episode 13: 2038: A Smart Port Story

We rarely know what the future is going to look like, what impact the tech buzzwords of today will have. But there are those among us who try and predict that future, to envisage what today’s technology will grow into in 10, 20 years’ time. This episode takes a break from reviewing the buzzwords of today, so to speak, and travels forward to the year 2038 with co-authors Dr. Eva Savelsberg and Matthew Wittemeier from INFORM’s Logistics Division to explore the world they’ve created in their sci-fi novella 2038: A Smart Port Story.

Episode 09: Augmented vs. Assisted Reality

Episode 9 kicks off with a quick bit of organizational material where the show’s original host, David Weaver, announces that he’s handing the reins over to Matthew Wittemeier. After a brief introduction, the show continues with the topic’s guest Johanna Bellenberg, Director of Marketing and Communications at Picavi. Shortly into the interview, we delve straight into the topics of Augmented Reality (AR) and Smart Glasses, or as Johanna likes to call it, Assisted Reality. We learn that Assisted Reality differs slightly from AR in that it isn’t as immersive. This is a distinct point of difference for business operators as it allows for a safer overall interaction. Exploring different usage examples and digging into the appropriateness of Smart Glasses in the enterprise world takes the show up to a concluding discussion on where we can find AR today (spoiler alert, Pokémon Go is up for debate).
