Main Expo Hall | Project Immersive Art Gallery

Project Immersive Art Gallery is a 3D space generation solution in virtual reality that uses a voice prompt to generate a scene that is an art gallery of paintings based on input from the user. Users provide a voice prompt via their VR headset, then view the generated scene in virtual reality with a VR headset. The technology leveraged includes: Verbal prompt → Amazon Transcribe → Llama2 on Amazon SageMaker to generate the scene description → scene description sent to Stable Diffusion on Amazon Bedrock for image retrieval → images returned to 3D Scene Generation tool → scene rendered with description of each art piece in VR for viewing with Meta Quest → Amazon Polly describes each piece in the art gallery.

Meet the Team

Spatial Computing specialists and leaders will be in attendance, and meeting with customers and partners throughout the week. Please reach out to your account or partner representatives if you would like to engage with the spatial computing team on site. Below are some examples of topics the spatial group will cover:

Spatial Computing: Business in the 3D Web & Metaverse Age

Business in the 3D Web & Metaverse Age details how AWS is positioned as a partner for customers pursuing metaverse ambitions, including our mental model on metaverse, industry challenges, AWS solutions for customers, as well as next steps for those seeking to delve deeper into the metaverse age. Learn how AWS is helping customers address use-cases including: Collaborative 3D Review, Virtual Facilities, Immersive Training, Enterprise Microverses, Immersive Commerce, and Augmented Operations. Metaverse is an innovation and transformation lever being discussed at the C-suite and board level of the most important companies in the world.

Spatial Data Lakes: Unlocking the Value of Spatial Data

This spatial computing topic is geared toward technical business leaders, including CTO, VP technology, and architecture leadership roles. This session is ideal for IT leaders, IT professionals, and enterprise developers who work with, or are considering working with 3D data and technologies such as CAD, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Digital Twin, and IoT. As enterprises continue to adopt 3D native technologies such as CAD, AR, VR, real-time rendering, and digital twins, organizations will benefit from having a clear strategy for ingesting, managing, and making use of large volumes of spatial data. In this session, learn how a strong data lake strategy can help extract unrealized value from 3D data you may not even be aware you’re generating, and maximize the value of existing investments in IoT, data analytics, and existing cloud transformations.
