Augmented Reality is promising a future where our experiences with digital information aren’t bounded by a box. This new mass medium will completely change the way people live, work and play as our physical reality blends with a virtual one.
To enable these immersive, natural and intuitive experiences, we need “The AR Cloud”, a machine-readable, 1:1 scale model of the world. Experts believe “The AR Cloud” will be the single most important software infrastructure in the history of computing, far bigger than Google’s search index and Facebook’s social graph.
What is the AR Cloud and why is it so important? How will location-based AR experiences change in the next few years after Pokemon Go’s big debut in 2016? Does this year mark the beginning of the spatial era?
Join us on June 19th and learn from the industry’s brightest minds, connect with other like-minded VR/AR professionals and experience never-seen-before mixed reality demo’s as we unveil the potential of Augmented Reality. This event will feature a keynote by Marco DeMiroz, the co-founder and General Partner of the Venture Reality Fund and collaborator of the formation of the Women in XR (WXR) Fund.
We are excited to feature a talk by Alex Chuang of Shape Immersive on “Building the AR Cloud”
Our first panel will be a discussion on location-based AR and its gain in popularity and its future trends. Speakers from Motive.io , QuestUpon and others will join us on stage.
Our final panel will feature an interesting dialogue on AR Cloud. Speakers from Shape Immersive, Atheer and Steampunk Digital, almond with other will discuss all its applications.
The full list of speakers and demos will be announced this week!
Food and drinks will be provided!
$60 general admission | free for members

Blockchain Economic Forum is coming to San Francisco on June 16-19
LATOKEN, a crypto exchange and multi-asset tokenization platform, is proud to announce its third event dedicated to bridging blockchain with the global economy: Blockchain Economic Forum (BEF).
BEF Singapore and New York attracted over 1,600 investors, entrepreneurs, politicians, decision-makers, and opinion leaders, such as Vicente Fox (former president of Mexico), Reese Jones (Singularity University), Jean Claude Donato (Nikaia Ventures), Miko Matsumura (Evercoin), Peter Bergstrom (BitBlock Ventures), Daniel Heller (ex-IMF), Hanna Halaburda (Bank of Canada, NYU), Toni Lane Casserly (Cointelegraph), and Nicholas Merten (DataDash, 285k+ YouTube subscribers). Building on the success of these events, LATOKEN is delighted to host BEF in San Francisco on June 16-19, 2018.
This time, the event will take place in the technological heart of the world, San Francisco (USA) on June 16-19, 2018. BEF SF is a four-day event that is expected to be attended by over 2,000 participants, including many leaders from the world of technology, business, media and politics. The forum will host over 40 inspiring discussions on blockchain opportunities for strategic development of real sector companies, industry regulation, technology updates, as well as marketing and PR for blockchain and crypto startups.
“Blockchain Economic Forum is designed to empower pioneers to find ideas, investments, partners, and friends. Together we will make crypto official and widespread in order to automate capital markets, money and states. This will save billions of working hours each year. Blockchain can automate elections, courts, state finances and make them more transparent. As a result, 6 billion people will overcome corruption to catch up with the golden billion. This is how emerging economies may grow by $400 trillion. At the same time, the costs of state services in developed countries will likely be halved.”, says Valentin Preobrazhenskiy, CEO of LATOKEN and Chair of BEF Organizing Committee.
