AR and VR in Public Sector Training

Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are edging their way into key areas of the public sector, with the potential to transform the use of data, increase employee performance, and improve the efficiency of public services. 

The emergency services are beginning to use VR in training to mitigate risk and increase their preparedness for challenging and unforeseen call-outs. Surgeons and A&E staff are integrating VR and AR into training for cutting-edge procedures. Urban planners are empowered by AR and VR to visualise big data to ensure cities and towns develop harmoniously. 

Join us on 4th December in Central London to discover what other organisations are doing to introduce the latest technology into their training schemes to mitigate risk, increase preparedness, and strengthen outcomes among their staff. What is your potential?
