Speaker: Charlie Han, Microsoft, United States of America

Abstract: The story of HoloLens is founded in the journey to merge the best parts of the digital world with the physical world. From the early days of Kinect to the launch of HoloLens 2, this singular pursuit has taken us through invention, leaps of faith, and an ongoing discovery of what this technology can do to transform work, play and communications. We'll explore some of the toughest technical challenges, along with the human component and how it can guide our collective development of this new medium. This is the story of a more human path.
