A virtual audience from all over the globe came together to hear from industry leaders and innovators talk about how extended reality technology is transforming their work at the first XR@Michigan Summit, organized by University of Michigan’s Extended Reality (XR) Initiative within the Center for Academic Innovation. The two-day virtual conference held in early April featured speakers talking about research, pedagogy and business solutions around XR tech, including how technologies are and can be used in higher education.

More than 600 people attended the live virtual sessions and many more are expected to access the materials in the subsequent days. In all, 1,500 people from 97 countries registered to hear about the latest development in XR technologies

The XR Initiative is a long-term project of the Center for Academic Innovation and is partnering with the DMC Emerging Technologies Group and CAEN to provide extensive XR (Extended Reality) resources and training to students and faculty in the Duderstadt Center’s Visualization Studio.
