See it to be­lieve it

7 Days in Dubai - - GITEX TECH WEEK -

You’ve heard of re­al­ity and you’ve heard of vir­tual re­al­ity, but what about technology that takes you in be­tween the two? Mi­crosoft’s HoloLens prom­ises to of­fer just that in a new vis­ual sys­tem the de­vel­oper be­lieves could be rev­o­lu­tion­ary for ed­u­ca­tion, busi­ness and the med­i­cal world. The sys­tem also al­lows users to stream in­ter­net footage, watch a video or play a game as if they were inside the pro­gramme. “Mi­crosoft has been work­ing on many ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence tech­nolo­gies like the Chat Box, field­pro­grammable gate ar­ray, ma­chine learn­ing tech­nolo­gies and the HoloLens,” said Ne­cip Ozyu­cel, the Cloud and En­ter­prise Busi­ness Group Lead. “Ja­pan Airlines is us­ing HoloLens for train­ing pur­poses – as it is not easy to have many jet en­gines for stu­dents to prac­tice on.” Dubai Gov­ern­ment has jumped on board with DEWA and Dubai Po­lice an­nounc­ing they will be the first pub­lic ser­vices to use HoloLens.
