SingularityU South Africa Summit

What are the benefits of having Augmented and Virtual reality in our present world and the future of humanity?

Today on the Exponential Africa Show, Mic Mann has a great chat with SingularityU Faculty member specialising in Augmented and virtual reality - Rachel Sibley!

Education and training are a huge opportunity space; through AR and VR, we can scale immersive learning! Rachel says that we can dematerialise and thus demonetise by digitising the most high impact way of learning which is fully embodied interactive learning.

Rachel speaks of retention and efficiency through interactive, immersive learning being the most impactful way to scale children and adult education as well as retraining our workforce.

Rachel discusses what our children or next-generation would look like if they had an embodied relationship to concepts like quantum physics. “If we could create virtual worlds where we could expose our minds to these concepts, we would really open up entirely new domains of opportunity.” Rachel Anne Sibley.

Watch the full episode for more on this very relevant and fascinating topic!
