NVIDIA Omniverse : an open platform

Online

A free virtual talk featuring one of the latest and most exciting technology platforms for visualising 3D creative processes and accurately simulating product and human behaviour in real-time. NVIDIA Omniverse has gained considerable attention since its earlier-than-planned-launch in May 2020, not just because of the pandemic but because of its collaborative workflow potentials, made possible through its use of open standards.

This event will be chaired by Tracy Harwood, Professor of Digital Culture at the Institute of Creative Technologies, De Montfort University, Leicester, and features George Matos, senior product manager of Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector for the NVIDIA Omniverse platform.

The event will be live-streamed 4-5pm on Thursday 28 October, with an opportunity for audience Q&A; and will then be available to watch on YouTube – see link below.

Savena and Arda of digital arts and design company Identity 2.0 talk about their mission to empower and enable grown up debate around identity and data.

Following on from their ground breaking exhibition at LCB Depot earlier this year, commissioned through Smart Cities, we are proud to present Identity 2.0’s film The Design of Racism.
We are increasingly putting our trust in data and automation which feels like a new thing, a digital thing – it feels inexorable. Identity 2.0 explains here how this isn’t a new thing. The design and manipulation of data has been going on in some scenarios for decades if not centuries and in a sense has become truth. Identity’s voice here serves as a reminder how critical it is to be our own analysts. How do we trust data? How do we know what to think?’
