During this Hangout we will be explore how Open and Interoperable Augmented Reality can build upon existing standards. Spokespeople from the IEEE-SA and other standards development organizations actively working on Augmented Reality will share why their members’ and editors’ include AR use cases, the approaches taken, achievements to date and plans for the future.

We will learn:

  • How do use cases involving Augmented Reality-assisted visualization stimulate the development of new specifications?
  • Which standards are specific to AR and why are they needed?
  • Where can developers of tools and content learn about standards, download them and what are the conditions for use?
  • What are some of the challenges or obstacles to developing standards for Open and Interoperable AR today?
  • Why are all companies not working together to advance Open and Interoperable AR?
  • How can companies and individuals contribute to the development of standards that will contribute to Open and Interoperable Augmented Reality?

Jay Iorio is the Innovation Director and unofficial futurist for the IEEE Standards Association. His primary interest is synthetic realities — virtual worlds, virtual reality, augmented reality, and the merging of these and related technologies into new forms. In addition, he has written on gamification, the built environment as a major element of the future computing landscape, and the convergence of art and technology. Iorio built and manages the IEEE Island complex in Second Life and is an Oculus Rift developer working on transforming virtual environments such as Second Life into fully immersive VR experiences. He is also a machinimatographer and creator of the now-departed Etherfilm studio complex in Second Life. Much of his work today involves establishing a cross-disciplinary community -- comprising technologists, artists and filmmakers, game developers, and others -- who together could help define the technical and cultural interoperabilities needed to fulfill the vast promise of this new wave of computer-generated illusion. Jay is based in Los Angeles.
