During this session, attendees will learn about the intersection between the emerging fields of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality, including some of the work IBM Watson is doing with Interactive Speech Interfaces and Chatbots in VR. From applications in science, training, therapy, rehabilitation, productivity, education and, yes, gaming, attendees can expect to learn some concrete examples from Michael's own experience and be presented industry trends and understand more about where AI and VR are going in both the near and long term future.
