Webinar: Glimpse of Tomorrow’s Decision Support Technologies for Industry

Updated: Nov 23, 2020

On November 25th from 9:00-11:00 there is a unique opportunity for you to take part of a digital event presenting the latest research from the research profile VF-KDO. For this event, seven demonstrators will give you a glimpse of the research carried out within the profile's seven subject areas. A demonstrator is a physical or virtual prototype that demonstrates the practical value of a research result.

For example, we’ll give you the latest discoveries from research projects within human robot cooperation, tool indexing optimization and solutions visualization using HoloLens to knowledge discovery and visualization using the OPT-Browser (optimization platform developed at the University of Skövde).

Streamed from our unique Virtual Decision Making room

This event is a zoom webinar. It will be live-streamed from the VDM-room at ASSAR. In many ways this room is identical to the “war room” concept in business or industry: equipped with big screens surrounding the inside of the room and VR/AR devices for the participants to have group meetings that involve strategic, tactical and decision-making activities. A room that our industrial partners and companies will be able to borrow for their decision-making activities.

When: Nov 25th Time: 9:00-11:00 How: Via zoom. Sign up below and we'll send out the link the day before.
