Advanced image recognition and AI turns the world into interactive objects to empower knowledge transfer
IRVINE, CA, November 30, 2016 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, announces that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Image Recognition are key features to create an illuminated world through EON Reality’s Augmented Virtual Reality (AVR) Platform. Together, these two technologies will allow the AVR platform to inject knowledge into everyday things and turn objects into interactive learning bots.
Using EON AVR, a “smart worker” can work in augmented reality together with an AI bot transferring knowledge in visual, auditory, and kinesthetic modalities.
By turning objects and environments into “interactive learning bots,” knowledge becomes contextual and learning can take place organically in a structured format, relevant to a user’s needs. Knowledge transfer becomes a multi-sensory experience by targeting visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners through highly visual, interactive learning objects. The end result is an illuminated world where knowledge, not just information, is a glance away.
EON Reality’s contextual AVR platform is an efficient man-machine knowledge transfer interface that will enable the smart cooperation of users, AI, cloud computing, and the internet of things.
“It’s our goal at EON Reality to make knowledge easier to obtain and to apply,” said Mats W. Johansson, CEO of EON Reality. “By integrating AI and image recognition into our AVR platform, we can make good on our belief that Knowledge is a Human Right. Real time contextual learning can accelerate maintenance and repair operation procedures, language learning, and student studies. We see this as the next big step for knowledge transfer.”
EON Reality’s AVR Platform and cognitive AI systems, such as IBM Watson, present exciting opportunities to link AI and humans via Augmented and Virtual Reality.
Objects are captured through a smart device (a smartphone, tablet, or AR glasses) and identified through image recognition. The captured object is then tagged to a Geo location and is connected to an AI bot that searches and structures relevant information to that object. Within moments, that object becomes a Knowledge Bit, a self contained 3D object or image attached to an AI bot, that a user can interact with and can answer relevant questions.
Additionally, this technology will help users interface with the dizzying array of new technologies coming to market and the rapid evolution of AI and IoT systems. Computers are evolving exponentially and the average person’s increasing reliance on computers for day to day tasks means there is a need for an improved man-machine interface. With the amount of knowledge that will be transferred, users need to communicate with their interconnected world at the speed of light.
“We’re entering a new age where touch by thumbs and fingers will not be enough to communicate with our digital world,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “With more futuristic technologies decades away, there needs to be an intermediary solution that will help us transfer and contextualize the overwhelming increase in knowledge available. We feel that EON Reality’s AVR Platform is uniquely positioned to do that and adding AI and image recognition support to the platform will only strengthen its capabilities.”
The EON AVR Platform addresses this issue by serving as the man-machine interface. As disruption from technologic advances leads to the reshaping of the economy, the AVR Platform will help accelerate the training of new workforces as well as injects contextual knowledge from IoT and AI systems into their world.
