Mixed Reality: Beyond the Real-Virtual Dichotomy, Expanding Human Potentials 2012-05-23

Visionary : Adrian D. CHEOK [Professor, Graduate School of Media Design, Keio University / Director, Mixed Reality Lab, National University of Singapore], Howard CHARNEY [Senior Vice President, Office of the President, Cisco], Genevieve BELL [Director, Interactions and Experience Research, Intel Labs, INTEL] Symposiarch : WOO Woontack [Professor, Graduate School of Culture Technology, KAIST]

The scope and reach of human influence is being extended. The new generation of mixed reality technologies is merging the real and the virtual, making possible simultaneous interactions between the two worlds. With its limitations in interface design and accessibility being mitigated, mixed reality is making tangible contributions to expanding the human potential in an increasing number of practical fields including healthcare, education, training and media by lowering spatiotemporal barriers. With the real and the virtual coming to coexist and be increasingly interfused, what kinds of benefits and obstacles lie in store for us?

Advice from a Japan industry leader to all youth. Do the things which are most risky now!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

At my class for Innovators Seminar, I invited Mr. Hideto Nakahara Member of the Board and Senior Executive Vice President of Mitsubishi Corporation which is one of the most important companies in Japan, and perhaps the world.

As a leader of such an important company, he gave some excellent advice to our students which is an important message to all youth. He said Mitsubishi Corporation has to take very safe decisions because it is a large trading company with many employees. However he told our students the following advice

1. Do the things which are the most risky

2. Do it now because you will not be young for long

I thought this was amazing and visionary advice, coming from such a high up leader. We normally would expect conservative thinking at the top level of Japan, but I found Mr. Nakahara incredible engaging and visionary.
