An introduction from MIT Technology Review's CEO and publisher

4:05 PM

Technology is only as powerful as the people behind it. The industrial metaverse offers an opportunity to bridge the best of advanced technologies with the human capacity to create and innovate. Gain a practical and unique view of the Industrial Metaverse, from vision to strategy; operations to execution; and from measurement to ROI. It is the moments of intense disruption that provide the greatest opportunity to create the future.

4:15 PM

This discussion offers a stakeholders view of the path to digital dexterity through the lens of collaboration. The digital ecosystem is the new business imperative and a critical component to understand the value offered by participating in the industrial metaverse. This community creates value for ecosystem partners as users create value for one another.

4:50 PM

This is a story of chance, opportunity and ultimately, democratizing scientific data so that all stakeholders have access to intuitive, actionable information. See how Digital Twin technology, typically used to support manufacturing, is being applied in the new Blue Economy, to optimize management of our ocean resources, now and in the future. Visualize, interact, manipulate and simulate, the coral reef digital twin empowers all users with the information they need to make better decisions, to protect and grow their resources, and secure a better future for all.

5:05 PM

By merging digital twins with their real-world counterparts and using AI to analyze and optimize, companies can connect people, production, and processes in a data driven continuous feedback loop that has never been possible before. This convergence of digital and real worlds, enabling real-time interaction with other people and machines, will forever change the way we work and collaborate.

5:30 PM

We take a final moment to reflect on the emergent industrial metaverse and the intersection of design, business, and technology.
