The man who envisioned the future of the workplace and adapted the gesture technology he created for Tom Cruise in the film ‘Minority Report’, John Underkoffler, is presenting a keynote at the ISE Smart Building Conference 2015.

John, founder and chief scientist at Oblong Industries, known for bringing sci-fi technology and impressive user interface into reality, will share his insight into the importance of visual collaboration and the role of unified communications in shaping our working future during his talk.

The audience will get hear first-hand of how Oblong worked with IBM at the ThinkLab engineering hub in Yorktown Heights, NY and the Watson Experience Center at Astor Place in Manhattan, on new rooms that are gesture-enabled and spatially-aware, creating a paradigm shift in communication, collaboration and ideation that will set the standard for the future of work.

There are also several other opportunities to learn about Oblong technologies at ISE.

The company is hosting three talks in the Unified Communications Theatre, Hall 9, at 2pm daily.

On Tuesday, Feb 10 at 2pm there will be a ‘fireside chat’ with John Underkoffler and Dentsu Aegis Network Americas & EMEA, CEO Nigel Morris, entitled Visual Collaboration Across the Organization

Dentsu Aegis Network has recently had the company’s Mezzanine concept installed in its offices and as a multinational media and digital marketing communications firm innovating the way brands are built, Dentsu Aegis needed a multi-device, pixel-rich and highly intuitive digital workspace to connect key creative offices around the globe.

CEO Nigel Morris turned to Oblong Industries and its next-gen conferencing and collaboration technology to move the organization forward.

In this fireside chat, John Underkoffler and Nigel Morris will talk about the importance of visual collaboration and the role of UI in shaping the future.

The title of Wednesday’s presentation is; Innovating at the Intersection of AV & IT: Why it Matters, presented by Steve Smith, UK director for Oblong Industries.
As AV and IT converge with increasing frequency, a platform that more seamlessly links multiple locations, devices, content, screens, and people becomes essential.

In this presentation, Steve Smith will be joined by a special guest from respected Technical Consulting and Information Technology company LSC Group to discuss the decision factors for bringing innovative technology solutions to organisations.

On the Thursday it’s the turn of Mary Ann de Lares Norris, COO, Oblong Industries to present and the title this time is; Fueling Collaboration and Innovation in the Multi-Screen and Multi-Device World.
The nature of work is changing. It is more digital, distributed, and BYOD than ever before.

New work-styles require new thinking about how and where work gets done.

The talk will explore how companies can better engage their customers and workforce? And how can IT and AV professionals integrate disparate systems and needs.
