Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) use data science, machine intelligence, and creativity to enable training and planning in a safe environment—without consequences. How is this playing out in battlefield simulations, education, and beyond, and what can we expect in terms of technology—and ethics—in the future?
Where can you find a “Spider Man” robot, an augmented reality welding simulator teacher and a futuristic printer? They are not part of sci-fi movies but are handy tools at CLP’s Generation Business Group (GBG), where a host of innovative solutions have been devised to further improve our operations, safety level, and training.

But robotics is just one of many advancing technologies that are likely to change our lives dramatically. Converging technologies, including virtual reality, 3D printing, augmented reality, robotics and nanotechnology will combine to alter the way we construct buildings and products, and how we define work.
