Interactive Fireworks Show
Soar high above the Dallas skyline and experience what it would be like to circle downtown and see some fireworks as a simple example of spatial computing and the possibilities of digital twins using web-based XR frameworks.
Creating Value in a Modern Data Platform “Sandbox”
Data is the new oil. It’s a core business asset and product; it’s not leftover exhaust from operational systems. Treating data like a product requires intense focus on prioritization, quality, culture, and the pursuit of “What new value can we get from our data?” Maximizing value from company data requires new ways of working and new technology. Many call these modern cloud-based data platforms “lakehouses,” which merge concepts of the old into the scalable technology of now.
Explore “lakehouse” concepts by building your own sandbox data “lake” platform visualized and contextualized with augmented reality topological play sand. Can you take your “mountain” of data, establish a data “lake,” and pipeline through products to maximum business value?
This exhibit explores the architecture of an AWS data lake and associated technologies (including S3, Redshift, Glue, Kinesis, and Quicksight) in a simple and tactile way, taking the concepts of a modern data platform and making them approachable and fun! Motion capture using a Microsoft Xbox Kinect detects the changing surface levels in the sandbox and, through the software on a laptop, projects a real-time topography, allowing you to see updates to your “lake” in real time.
Using Generative AI for Presentations
Companies are using generative AI for content creation, given the benefits of increasing output, reducing costs, and enhancing creativity. Several generative AI-powered tools have emerged that allow companies to create more compelling presentations. In addition to using generative AI to brainstorm ideas, create first drafts, and generate images and text for presentations, companies are using these tools to create more engagement with a broader set of audiences by converting text and slides to AI-generated avatar-led videos.
