Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality & Healthcare! During AWS #reInvent!


This event starts immediately after 2-hour keynote by Amazon CTO, watch it at starting 11:30AM ET. "An online bookstore created the 10th wonder of the world." No, really! I attended the very first AWS re:Invent conference (2012, Las Vegas) for Amazon Web cloud Service developers, partners, and users. And that is what Werner Vogels, Amazon's CTO told us 5000 attendees. I'm inclined to agree, certainly of the computing world! This 8th year I'd expect around 50,000 attendees to view 2,500 presentations. Wow! So, please join us in the clouds, via the magic of VR, to discuss the 10th wonder of the computing world and to explore the many AWS products making possible almost half of the web applications we use everyday, without most of us even realizing it. Personally, I'm most interested in AWS's VR & AR ambitions (6 presentations at re:Invent) and healthcare (20 presentations! I think there were zero at 2012 re:Invent). But any of over 165 AWS services are game. We'll have them all listed, along with short descriptions.
