2020 EVENT OVERVIEW

 

FOCUS PILLARS

Extended Reality

Virtual Reality

A computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional image or environment that can be interacted with in a seemingly real or physical way by a person using special electronic equipment, such as a helmet with a screen inside or gloves fitted with sensors.

Augmented Reality

The superimposing of an computer-generated image on a user's view of the real world, thus providing a composite view.

Mixed Reality

The merging of the real and virtual worlds to produce new environments and visualizations, where physical and digital objects co-exist and interact in real time.

AI

Machine Learning/ Deep Learning

The application of artificial intelligence (AI) that provides a system the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed

Robotics

Drone

A remote-controlled, pilotless aircraft. Often/potentially used in delivery, surveillance and transportation

Rapid Prototyping

 A group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design data. Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or "additive layer manufacturing" technology

Automaton

A moving mechanical device made in imitation of a human beings, used in various situations and complex functions.

IOT/ Cloud Computing

Cloud computing and the IoT both serve to increase efficiency in our everyday tasks, and the two have a complimentary relationship. The IoT generates massive amounts of data, and cloud computing provides a pathway for that data to travel to its destination.

Digital Arts

3D Modelling

In 3D computer graphics, 3D modeling is the process of developing a mathematical representation of any surface of an object in three dimensions via specialized software. The product is called a 3D model. 

Graphic Design

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography, iconography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously

Animation

Animation is a method in which figures are manipulated to appear as moving images. In traditional animation, images are drawn or painted by hand on transparent celluloid sheets to be photographed and exhibited on film. Today, most animations are made with computer-generated imagery

DIGITAL Community

The various efforts by the different communities during this trying time of COVID-19.
