⭐️ PREPARE TO STEP INTO THE METAVERSE WITH MESH FOR TEAMS
The metaverse is all the talk at present with both Facebook and Microsoft going all into to expand and build into it. But the biggest achievement of the metaverse is an industry wide scramble to figure out just what the metaverse is.Microsoft Mesh is described by Microsoft as a way of letting people connect with a holographic presence, share across space, and collaborate from anywhere in the world. Mesh for Microsoft Teams combines the mixed-reality capabilities of Microsoft Mesh, which allows people in different physical locations to join collaborative and shared holographic experiences, with the productivity tools of Microsoft Teams, where people can join virtual meetings, send chats, collaborate on shared documents and more.After attending this session, you will understand at a high-level:What Mesh for Microsoft Teams is, what new opportunities it introduces and what business benefits it can bring?A live demo of what stepping into Mesh for Microsoft Teams will feel likeHow you can better prepare your organization for the metaverse and Mesh for Microsoft TeamsTechnologies in this session will beMicrosoft TeamsAltspaceVR

🙂 Zaid Zaim

🕜 12:00 pm @ Track 3
⭐️ LET’S GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF COLLABORATION WITH MESH FOR TEAMS!
We all learned to use Microsoft Teams for our daily meetings with colleagues, customers and partners. Yes, we can talk to each other, we can stay in contact and many things are working in this remote scenario which seemed to be impossible. But it’s still not the same. Mixed reality can help with the emotional part which is missing in Teams meetings where you watch your screen the whole day. Microsoft Mesh offers a new level of remote meetings and we will cover the different options. We will talk about the following questions:- What is Microsoft Mesh for Teams about?- How can I start my first immersive meeting?- Do I need a headset to attend such a meeting?- What can we do to establish Mesh for Teams in my company?
🙂 Nicole Enders

🕜 1:00 pm @ Track 1
⭐️ HOW TO CHANGE THE GAME WITH IOT AND METAVERSE?
If we are to figure out what IoT + Metaverse means or is, we should examine where the two worlds intersect. This area of intersection would be the digital twin.In this session, we will present some funky applications of digital twin in Azure and how to get started with it.
🙂 Estelle Auberix

🕜 1:00 pm @ Track 2
⭐️ METAVERSE: ETHICS 101
In his Nicomachean ethics, the Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle wrote ”Our decisions to do good and bad actions, not our beliefs, form the characters we have”. Like many other philosophers, Aristotle considered the exploration of ethics – moral principles that govern a person’s behaviour or the conduct of an activity – as being fundamental to living. This session introduces ethics in the context of the metaverse. Should someone who commits violence in a virtual world be jailed? Do we have a duty to create identities which bear resemblance to who we are in real life? Is access to the metaverse a fundamental right for all?
🙂 Chris Hoard

🕜 1:00 pm @ Track 3
