The SXSW Interactive Festival can be as overwhelming as it is exciting—with everything from digital experiences to can’t-miss speakers and networking events. To help you figure out your schedule, we asked our Booz Allen community what top trends they expect to hear about. The trends reflected are topics our people and firm have a passion for, and affect the everyday work we do for our clients.
Check out the technology and workforce innovations we believe are defining our digital future.
Storytelling through AR/VR
Immersive technologies like artificial and virtual reality allow us to experience the future before it happens. Soldiers can train in real-world scenarios, whether it be breaching a compound or prepping an aircraft for flight. Doctors are able to see overlaid data helping them treat vital organs and firefighters can reach out to feel heat behind a door. Imagine being immersed in a VR experience of a natural disaster, helping us understand if we’ve invested enough in water management infrastructure—all through multidimensional realities equipping our people and saving lives.
