  • I am James Mackie I founded VESK in 2008
  • It became one of the fastest growing hosted desktop companies around
  • Nasstar acquired VESK October 1st 2015 so we are now part of a larger group
  • 84% of innovation is low risk and 16% of innovation is high risk, but has been shown to account
  • for 70% of profits You might think some of this is a bit "out
  • there" There are many areas to cover in technology
  • megatrends AI / Artificial Intelligence
  • AR /Augmented Reality AlphaGo beat the worlds best Go player, to give you an idea
  • of how difficult that is (and I remember Deep Blue (IBM) winning a chess match when I was
  • at school) there are 10 to the power 80 atoms in the universe, calculated with the understanding
  • the universe is 93 million light years across. The number of possible moves in Go is 10 to
  • the power 180. Even the creator of AlphaGo, Deep Mind (now
  • Google) who were based in London and recently acquired by Google, even the creators said they are still not quite sure
  • how AlphaGo won. WhatsApp sold for $19Bn and they only had
  • 50 staff and 900 million users, with thanks to AI.
  • Google now sell 1,000 AI instances for 60 cents ($0.60) so you can buy a thousand decisions
  • based on Google's open source AI. Now publicly available.
  • One of Microsoft's AI is called Microsoft Project Oxford, lots of different uses and
  • applications, one of them is facial recognition, emotion recognition; there are hundreds of
  • human known emotions and MS Project Oxford can recognise every single one to a high level
  • of accuracy. This technology can detect animals in pictures,
  • a lot of this technology is now super human because the technology has better recognition
  • than I would have recognising a friend or an animal in a forest that might be hidden
  • or far away. So to give you an idea a lot of this is now
  • super human in terms of their ability. The last example on AI is autonomous vehicles,
  • lots in the press about this at the moment, a million people a year die in road traffic
  • accidents. If someone was to say to us now "ok we are going to bring along this amazing
  • new way to get around, we call this method 'cars' but it's going to kill a million people
  • a year" you might think twice about it. The other was VR, I have an Oculus here for
  • you to trial, the second version of Oculus. Virtual Reality is great for gaming and for
  • experiences but I don't believe this will have as many uses or as useful as AR.
  • I could have also mentioned BitCoin / crypto currency or drones. all very new and exciting
  • technology that are all going to be megatrends. The reason why I decided AR is every 10 or
  • 15 years there is a new megatrend, in 1981 we had the PC / Personal Computer, in 1996
  • we had the Internet (mass adoption), 2007 was the smart phone so we are due another
  • technology megatrend. Augmented Reality is the technology that will affect everybody,
  • not just in their personal life but in business too.
  • If anybody doesn't know what AR is, by definition "to augment" means to make something larger,
  • so maybe augmented reality is not the best definition. Mediated or mixed reality is preferable.
  • If I had my AR glasses on now I could see everything that is in the room with a hologram
  • layered on top so it's augmenting / mixing real life with holograms.
  • AR is not to be confused with virtual reality. The difference is that in virtual reality
  • the entire world that you are experiencing is virtualised so you're not seeing any real-life.
  • The reason I think AR is more optimal is because essentially if you wore AR glasses and went
  • into a dark room, you would have VR. So how does AR work ? AR uses optical waveguided
  • lens to project light onto a HMD / Head Mounted Display.
  • The term HPU has been cleverly coined and stands for Holographic Display Unit, hopefully
  • we all know what CPU's and GPU's are, so now you know what HPU's are.
  • Why do I think it's going to help us in the business sense ? There are a lot of reasons
  • and I've written about this in a blog. The two main reasons, the first is regarding
  • the input display we use all day everyday. Right now I have to open my laptop, there's
  • this small screen to the side, I saw a lot of other people squinting whilst doing their
  • presentations. Because you are limited by these displays.
  • With augmented reality you can have a monitor in front of you displayed as a hologram and
  • in HD / High Definition, so I could literally just drag with my fingers (hand tracking)
  • to make a larger display, so I could have my Windows 10 desktop and then my personal
  • TV to watch a film, and I could make these virtual displays any size that I want, directly
  • in front of me. If I'm giving a talk like right now, instead
  • of having to look at my laptop, the words would be scrolling in my field of view, my
  • text messages down the other side of my field of view and essentially I could drive my car
  • or multi-task. Am sure laws will be created against driving with your AR glasses.
  • So I am a firm believer that in the near future, probably in 5 years time, augmented reality
  • will be in the workplace and will replace the monitor or input display.
  • Our FD has 12 or 13 spreadsheets open at once on two monitors, however with AR, she could
  • literally have 20 spreadsheets open managing the accounts.
  • The other way is video conferencing, you can now use a new technology called volumetric
  • capturing. Volumetric capture works by scanning an object (e.g. human) and you are then placed
  • into the virtual world in 3D. I could put my AR glasses on, Nigel
  • or a colleague would be sitting on a chair in this room and I could see him in 3D and in great detail
  • such as the hairs on his head and his micro expressions.
  • So volumetric capturing and then video conferencing should replace normal mobile audio phone / video
  • conference calls. This is the future of business meetings and video conference calls.
  • Another important business benefit of AR would be an API for social, so if I were to go into
  • a meeting, when I look at anyone in the meeting, beside that person I will see simple information
  • such as their name, but also more detailed information such as their CV, their LinkedIn profile,
  • previous job positions, plus any information I specifically save about this person; maybe historic video clips or important notes about
  • the individuals personality. This would be at my eyeballs immediately.
  • So that was the Hololens which is excellent.
  • There are many others but two specifically AR headsets are very good, the Meta 2
  • So you can create 3D art with your hands a print it
  • Which is very good with hand interaction
  • Then there is Magic Leap who have just received $1.4Bn of investment from Google, Warner Bros and other Silicon Valley big wigs
  • Magic Leap have already been valued at $4.5Bn and they still don't have a product out to market
  • We are huge proponents of the HoloLens
  • And this is something we want to offer, a Windows holographic desktop with the HoloLend
  • Only 50% of the user experience is visual, the rest of the experience comes from other accessories
  • such as haptic sensing, haptic suits, 3D sound, 3D smell
  • If you were playing a game and someone fired something at you, you would feel the bullet hit you
  • You have 3D sound which works very well, 3D smell and the Meta 2 has full hand tracking
  • It's a way to be far more immersive with the world around you
  • AR multi-directional walking machines. The Void in Utah uses "Presence" to trick your mind into thinking you're walking in a straight line but in fact you are walking around a room
  • There are all of these very clever technologies to make the experience so immersive that you feel like you are in another reality, rather than your own
  • So I tried VR 20 years ago and I was very excited but the tech just wasn't there. However now Facebook announced they now have 1 million hours of 360 video
  • You can now buy a 360 camera for £300 and anyone can take 360 video to then publish for viewing through a VR headset or even a smart phone and look around the room rather than just in one place
  • To take it a step further and look at AR in the future, I've been looking at the Softcell lens for a number of years
  • It's a contact lens with a PCB (Printed Circuit Board) made of acetate paper and when you blink, the kinetic energy from your eyes recharges the Softcell lens
  • So rather than having a huge HMD, you can watch and experience AR through a contact lens. You will have a full field of view through the contact lens
  • One of the most interesting technologies that I have come across is called the EyeTap
  • When you are looking out, essentially all you're looking at is rays of light. The EyeTap sits in front of your eyes and via a camera,
  • essentially replicates those very same rays of light. Recreating your own reality in a way. Projecting those rays of light on to your retina
  • So if I had the EyeTap on now I would see everything I can see now, nothing would change
  • At the moment the problem with the HoloLens and the Meta 2 is they have this very slight neon border around them and the hologram colours are slightly off
  • So you know it's not real, whereas with the EyeTap, if all the light is being re-projected into your eyes, when a hologram is then layered in front of you
  • with the same level of light, the same contrast, the hologram actually blends perfectly with everything else you are seeing
  • this technology could one day appear to be as real as a hallucination or dream
  • The guy who developed this, Steve Mann, has recently been employed by Gribetz, the founder of Meta
  • Now onto the slightly more "out there" is to discuss the different types of interface to use with AR
  • The BCI / Brain Computer Interface is a way to interface a brain with technology, in this case AR.
  • Microsoft want to use Cortana, Apple use Siri for voice instruction , however I think going one step further would increase the speed
  • of operation. I have purchased as you can see here an EEG or Electroencephalogram, this one is 11 channels and by B-Alert ABM, I also have a 32 channel EEG
  • that was retired from a hospital, you can purchase these from for vastly reduced amounts of money
  • with 32 channels you can measure many areas of the brain and measure for responses from alpha, theta, delta and sigma
  • and the way EEG works is that is measures 100,000th of a volt / a micro volt from your brain and amplifies this by around 5,000 times
  • a right leg driver is used to remove hum from the 50Hz mains power. You then receive the raw EEG data
  • so I've been running a number of experiments on how the brain reacts to particular stimuli
  • EEG has been around since the 20's so it's a relatively old technology. My plan is to increase the amplification of those brainwaves
  • so we can attempt to read and transmit neurological data from one subject to the other, making each experiment more accurate
  • I've written a blog on this which goes into more detail regarding H2H or human to human consciousness and thought communication
  • I firmly believe in the next 5 years that AR will be the next technology megatrend in business.
