Data Visualization with Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

Virtual reality and augmented reality may help make sense of another exploding area, Big Data. Oliver Kreylos at the University of California, Davis, explores this more esoteric use of the tools, painting a picture of a data stream that can be manipulated.

This is a big deal: "A virtual-reality data exploration system offers a user the ability to create visualizations of large 'live' data sets, i.e., data sets that are transmitted from a running simulation, and to interact with these visualizations to gain better insight into the data."

Augmented reality and virtual reality technology have an almost limitless potential. They can start new categories – holographic meetings, anyone? – or add a new dimension to established categories. Indeed, these two platforms, which share much underlying technology, join the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence as technologies that excite the imagination of manufacturers, entrepreneurs, investors and, most of all, end users.

Many companies are trying to answer the question of what to do with AR and VR. They've already come up with a tremendous amount of good answers, and will create more in the future. This slideshow offers a taste of what experts in this exciting field are thinking about in the realm of enterprise virtual reality and enterprise augmented reality.
