Cloud Computing provides cost savings by leveraging existing systems in the Internet Cloud. Thus, your company doesn't have to buy, install, and support hardware. And the systems in the Cloud can be dynamically expanded to meet demand through virtualization. The disadvantage of the Cloud is that it adds complexity to the delivery process and means you are always dependent upon an Internet connection. Darby Staff has worked on Amazon Web Systems (AWS), so we have the perspective to help you make great use of Cloud Computing.
Augmented Reality is a live view of the real world with augmented features
generated by computer systems. Your physical world is overlaid with computer generated imagery
that looks just as real. Think of walking around with a perpetual rainbow in your field of
vision. You have to take off the visor to see that it's really not there.
An Augmented Reality adds elements of the digital world to the person's perceived world. These elements can be informative or instructive. For example, an architect could walk around the construction site with an overlay of what the final building will look like. They can thus compare reality with their drawings to ensure that the construction work is accurate and on schedule. The Augmented Reality can also be manipulated by the user, so they could see what the building should look like at various stages of development.
Big Data is huge data sets that have become available as a result of ever decreasing cost of storage. Everything can be captured, stored, and analyzed. From this data, new insights can be obtained that then guide marketing and promotion efforts. The result is increased efficiency in marketing your goods and services.
Augmented Reality is becoming more prevalent in education. By
immersing students in an Augmented Reality, they can learn more about new ideas
and technologies. They can experience the lab real-time, not just imagine it.
Education is about teaching new concepts and learning new skills. Augmented Reality enables that in new ways. The student can practice on a virtual reality, where mistakes are not costly. Simulating a real-world environment has never been so easy.
Campus Climate has changed this year. More and more, there are concerns over security and social issues. There seems to be a collision happening between social groups on opposite ends of the spectrum. And students now feel threatened in academia like never before. Some of the threats are concerns over violence, data hacking, and identity theft.
