The new improvements promise to make EON AI Assistant an unrivaled premier solution for AI-powered XR learning around the world
IRVINE, CA, February 15, 2023 – EON Reality, Inc. (“EON Reality”), a global leader in Virtual and Augmented Reality (“XR”) industry and education solutions powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI), announces several new updates alongside the formal launch of the Spatial AI-powered EON AI Assistant.
The proprietary Spatial AI allows EON AI Assistant to “show and tell” users in the digital world in real time, while simultaneously offering guidance and assistance in the physical world like never before. This combination of a learning-capable AI brain with a fully interactive XR body gives EON AI Assistant the capability to remove the confines and overcome the shortcomings of many modern AI programs, which are simply a digital take on “a brain in a jar.” Spatial AI provides that brain with an avatar and the contextual awareness to use it — whether that means being able to see and react to a user’s smartphone movements or physically interacting with a digital object.
This technology also allows users to create persistently tracked experiences that include text, voice, videos and 3D assets. Through commonly owned mobile devices, users can easily access EON AI Assistant and receive personalized directions and support in a wide range of situations.
The first newly announced update comes directly to EON AI Assistant itself. The “Prompts” feature will allow users to begin the creation process by selecting a single topic, with 87 different academic prompt options across 7 categories available at launch in addition to 6 unique enterprise groupings for industries like tourism, health, manufacturing, aerospace or energy, and the ability to use engagement prompts to transform any segment into an engaging XR experience. Those options allow users to simply select a topic, provide a bit of information about the type of experience they’d like the EON AI Assistant to create, and then simply confirm that the portals and content created by the AI are correct.
With this new feature, EON AI Assistant will be as simple and engaging as watching your favorite streaming service, but while creating fully formed AI-powered XR experiences. This solves the content creation problem users around the world are facing regardless of subject matter or type of content.
In addition to the new update to EON AI Assistant, EON Reality will also soon be rolling out two new programs for both current and prospective clients.
The first program is the EON AI Startup Program, which helps bring Spatial AI to cutting-edge entrepreneurs and small businesses looking to expand through its usage. While EON Reality has long been focused on delivering its solutions to governments, academic institutions and established businesses for decades, this program marks the first time the company is taking a specific interest in early-stage startups.
By contributing to seedling businesses through access to solutions, support and investments, EON Reality hopes to help the next generation of entrepreneurs to develop new uses for and adoption of AI-powered XR. The best and brightest of these potential startup partners will also get the opportunity to present their ideas at events like EON Experience Fest, where they could connect and network with thousands of potential investors and partners at once.
The final major announcement from Wednesday’s launch event was the addition of a new AI competition program.
Rather than hosting its own global and regional competitions, EON Reality will now be providing the opportunity for partnered academic institutions, governments and other organizations to run their own competitions while offering as much or as little support as needed. As a part of its ongoing grant program, EON Reality will cover the entirety of the training, logistics and product costs for approved partners hosting a large-scale competition, leaving only the basic third-party infrastructure fees for the organization. Even for partners who already purchased the products and do not require new training, EON Reality’s customer success department will now work directly with institutions to ensure that their local and institution-based competitions succeed.
Along with these major changes, the new release also includes bug fixes and other minor enhancements. The next big reveal of updates to EON Reality’s programs and offerings will take place on March 23 at the year’s first EON Experience Fest event in California.
