Holograms and Virtual Reality in Remote Working

Extended Reality (XR) can help create more personal experiences in remote working. Leaders, challenged by Covid-19 restrictions, are starting to implement XR technologies to stay in contact with staff in ways that go beyond Zoom and GoToMeeting. XR promises to recreate more dynamic environments, help drive co-creation, as well as generate ideas over coffee.

As part of the international initiative Living Innovation, the Institute for Managing Sustainability  at the WU Wien is hosting an online dialogue on this topic on March 16th. Renowned VR and XR experts Simon Benson, Larry O'Reilly and Armen Ovanessoff will present newest insights into immerse technologies, show how companies are using XR and holographic telepresence to facilitate remote work, but also point out the risks and responsible use of these technologies.
