IRVINE, CA, July 3, 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 a new partnership with The Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology (UICT) to bring cutting-edge Spatial AI technology to its students and faculty in Uganda.
Using EON Reality’s AI-powered XR solutions, such as EON AI Assistant, UICT aims to enhance the practical-oriented ICT training it offers with immersive and interactive experiences. This will not only help students learn faster and retain information longer but also empower faculty members in developing content-rich and engaging lessons with significantly reduced effort.
EON Reality’s innovative solutions combine AI and XR with the world’s largest library for learning (containing over 6 million assets) and an AI-based environment for the automatic development of new content. Throughout this transformative educational experience, EON AI Assistant will support UICT in breaking down barriers for the creation, distribution, and consumption of information.
UICT, based in Kampala, Uganda, is a premier Government institution specializing in skills-based middle-level ICT training. The institute provides education and training in fields related to the communications sector, including telecommunications services, computer engineering, information technology, and business management. With EON Reality’s solutions, UICT aims to bolster its commitment to practical and skill-oriented training in ICT and related fields.
“We are delighted to partner with EON Reality to bring AI and XR-based solutions to the Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology (UICT). This collaboration will empower our students to explore the vast potential of artificial intelligence and Virtual Reality and leverage its transformative power across various sectors. Together, we are shaping the future of technology education and paving the way for innovative solutions that will drive Uganda’s digital growth.” – Dr. Fredrick Edward Kitoogo, Principal, UICT.
“We are thrilled to partner with The Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology, as this collaboration will highlight the capabilities of Spatial AI and EON AI Assistant in practical-oriented education,” says Dan Lejerskar, Founder, CEO and Chairman of EON Reality. “UICT’s focus on skill-based learning is an ideal platform to demonstrate the transformative potential of integrating AI-powered XR solutions in education. I look forward to the remarkable innovations that will emerge from this partnership.”
One of the standout features of EON Reality’s new AI-powered technology is Spatial AI, featuring a full-bodied avatar that can see, hear, and interact with the world around it. This AI-driven avatar can instruct and provide demonstrations on a range of topics using XR, as well as support and assist users with real-world tasks by offering real-time feedback in Augmented Reality.
Additionally, Spatial AI enhances existing AI-based language models by training them with topical information for each segment, initially with a focus on academic studies.
This partnership between EON Reality and UICT is expected to set new benchmarks in ICT education and training by integrating AI-powered XR solutions. It will enable students and faculty at UICT to leverage immersive experiences and cutting-edge technology to push the boundaries of education and innovation in the communications sector.
