  6. Let’s Meet Tom Tom is a highly skilled construction worker. He works as an operator in a company called InnovaConstruct, which specializes in building high-end industrial installations. As InnovaConstruct employs the best talent from across the world, Tom takes pride to be working in a truly international environment. Tom likes his work. Often, his work is dangerous. Usually, it requires high precision and dexterity. Sometimes, it takes a lot of strength and stamina. And always, it requires him to take deliberate decisions based on his experiences and expertise. That's why his job can hardly be delegated to robots!
  7. Today’s Task Today Tom, with his colleague Chhann from Cambodia, will have to build a section of a new solar energy plant located in the heart of the Sahara desert. They will have to work as a team to meet quality requirements and adhere to the daily schedule. The blueprint is already prepared – all they have to do is to make it operational.
  8. InnovaConstruct Armor At work, Tom uses InnovaConstruct Armor. This is a state-of-the-art, built-up exoskeleton that hosts the worker inside. The armor is powered by hydraulics and electricity and is fully integrated with human movements. It not only amplifies the strength of the worker by a factor of 50, but also builds a very convenient working environment inside, separated from the outside world. This is very important in such a dry and hot places like the Sahara. Although the armor looks very heavy and bulky, it allows Tom to move with precision Links: Example of exosceleton to be used in the army
  9. InnovaConstruct Helmet The InnovaConstruct Helmet that Tom uses forms the heart of his working environment. The connection to the corporate network provides Tom with all important data needed for his job. All blueprints and job performance support information are present in the helmet’s shield. The built-in microphone lets Tom perform voice interaction with the system and communicate with his co-workers. Active Noise Cancelation (ANC) headphones integrated with the helmet not only protect him from harmful noise but also provide all audio information needed on the job. Helmet integrates with the armor and builds closed working ecosystem separated from the external environment.

  10. Preparation Tom arrives at work at 9 AM. In the Operators’ Depot, he quickly puts on his construction armor and his helmet. Tom performs a quick check of his equipment as per the checklist displayed on his Head-Mounted Display (HMD). As everything looks fine, he goes to work. Links: Head-Mounted Disply of F-35 pilot
  11. Commuting As the solar plant covers a vast area, Tom’s working site today is located about 4 km from the Operators’ Depot. Tom uses a solar charged, pilotless passenger drone that transports him to his place of work in less than 3 minutes. He uses the same drone to reach the Operators’ Depot during his lunch break. It also acts as his rescue transportation in case he runs into any problems. Links: Passenger drone
  12. Communication At work, Tom needs to communicate with his co- workers, supervisors, as well as the AI-enabled central system of InnovaConstruct. On today’s shift, he is working with Chhann. Even though Chhann doesn’t know English very well, Tom uses his native language (English) in his interactions with Chhann, and is perfectly understood. How's that possible? All that Tom says to Chhann is translated on the fly into Cambodian with audio augmentation. Thanks to this technology, workmates can converse with perfect clarity and understanding, no matter what country they are from. Such an augmentation also lets Tom communicate with his supervisors from across the world. Links: Skype real-time translator Real-time translator 2
  13. Performing Tasks InnovaConstruct Armor gives Tom really supernatural powers! It amplifies Tom's strength by a factor of 50, which means that Tom can lift 500 kg solar panels as easily as lifting 10 kg without the armor. The armor lets Tom work efficiently and without fatigue for the whole shift. The helmet also helps Tom perform tasks in precise alignment with the blueprint. Accurate GPS localization, visual recognition, along with contextual performance support information displayed on the shield enable Tom to precisely connect all necessary instrumentation and perform his job with spot-on accuracy.

  14. Recording Information Tom’s helmet records, in the secured cloud, all that Tom sees during his work. Recording consists of both external and augmented views of his head-mounted display, as well as technical parameters of his equipment. This technology enables his company's AI systems to improve working procedures and skills of all InnovaConstruct operators across the world. Links: How We Teach Computers to Understand Pictures Google Deep Mind Explained
  15. Access to Information All necessary information is displayed in the transparent shield of Tom’s helmet. Such a view lets Tom simultaneously observe his working environment, as well as all required information related to it. Information is displayed contextually – in relation to the place in which Tom operates, the direction of his movement, and the direction of his sight. When Tom needs additional data, all he has to do is demand it with voice commands, which are interpreted by the system and provided on the shield of the helmet. Links: BMW Augmented Reality tool Lowe’s Holoroom
  16. Help and Motivation Tom has constant access to his health data (dehydration, fatigue, blood pressure), which is displayed on the shield of his helmet. The most important technical data (battery power, malfunctions, network connectivity) is also displayed. Tom's helmet also plays an important role in motivating him to follow the quality and quantity regimen for the day. It gamifies current tasks, providing various augmented visual and audio stimuli. This helps Tom to focus on his job and have fun while doing it. Links: Sight – a futurist short film
  17. Break – Phone Call Tom spends his break in the Operators’ Depot. After lunch, he speaks to his wife. They meet via HoloPhone, which displays holograms of both interlocutors. With HoloPhone, they can not only talk, but also feel each other's presence. As Tom is highly remunerated, InnovaConstruct can provide such a high-end machine to let Tom stay close to his family, even at work. Links: Musion Showreel hologram technology Virtual Honeymoon
  18. Health and Safety Tom's armor and helmet augment his safety at the workplace in the following ways: • They protect him from the sun, heat, and dust, thanks to the air conditioning inside. • They protect him from injuries with their heavy- duty, sturdy construction. • They protect him from noise, thanks to the effective active noise canceling system embedded in the headphones. • They protect him from overload with the strength amplification system. • They protect his eyes by adapting the transparency of the shield to the working environment (for example, while welding or working in the sun).
  19. Training Tom's assignment in the Sahara has almost come to an end. On his next one, he will be setting up kinetic wave power stations in the North Sea. Tom is excited about his new assignment, and is looking forward to developing new skills to support him on his new job. He uses the last two hours of today's shift to build these skills. His gear goes into training mode. Training scenarios in virtual reality let Tom practice new tasks and build his proficiency. Feedback provided by the system helps him understand complex procedures and build new muscle memory abilities. Links: Microsoft Hololens used in education Kinetic wave power station Volvo XC90 Experience
  20. End of Shift Tom concludes his shift at 6 PM. He feels happy and satisfied with his performance as he completed 107% of his daily job with high quality. That's an amazing number! Although he is far from his family, he feels good – appreciated by his company, supported by his loved ones and peers, and satisfied at being a valuable part of a global organization. The North Sea is calling, and he's ready!
  22. Let’s Meet Justine Meet 24-year-old Justine. She is the Team Lead at the state-of-the-art, innovation-driven Shared Services Center (SSC) office in Warsaw, Poland. She supervises a team of 15 people and works on business process improvements in parallel. Justine is spontaneous and tech savvy, and loves new innovations. One of her priorities is to manage her workday schedule well, so that she can spend quality time with her loved ones. She is constantly looking for ways to help her achieve this work-life balance. The Expandia Augmented & Virtual Reality (AVR) Glasses are just what Justine needs! This Reality Expander Device helps her juggle work and personal life, and be successful in both these areas.

  27. Performing Transactions and Handling Issues During the course of the day, the AVR glasses act as ‘assistant’ and ‘watcher’ for team members. The glasses can track human behaviors and effectiveness of operations and processes. They measure skill gaps, help perform RCAs, and provide performance support to users. If the user got stuck while performing a system transaction, the AVR glasses proactively activate the performance support mode. It includes the next possible steps, way to populate pending fields, necessary source data location, or additional support, including chatting with an SME chatbot. To make all this happen, the AVR glasses scan the user’s workstation monitor in real time to warn the user as soon as possible and prevent any error or system incident. This ensures the lowest interruption rate, the best business results, and client satisfaction. Links: K-Glass Innovation Augmented Reality TCP/IP Networking Simulation
  28. Training and Upskilling at Work Today’s post-lunch time is planned for skills improvement and trainings. Team members can test and learn the process changes, improvements, or their newly assigned duties while still working on tickets, causing no impact on business results and SLAs. This is due to the unique features of the AVR glasses, such as the AR simulation TryMe mode, which scans the workstation monitor using a built-in camera and places an AR extra layer on it. It gives a listing of documentation changes, brings up the best tips and tricks, and provides precise instructions to follow during the training while tracking execution to prevent user errors, data corruption, and system incidents. This mode is also ideal for new joiners who can rapidly learn and practice operations in the system on real data from day one, in a safe and cost-effective environment.

  34. At the Office Dalva arrives at the office. Today, the projection wall presents a beautiful waterfall. She admires it while sitting at one of the bike-desks. Dalva is fitness conscious and is participating in her company’s fitness program. The bike-desk unlocks with a voice command and activates a gamification program which counts kilometers cycled. Dalva competes against her own goals and doubles her cycling efforts. After she finishes the exercise and tracks it with the Fitbit, she is all energized to get started with the first tasks of the day in her role as a coach. Dalva reaches into a pocket below the desk for a wearable keyboard and switches to the non-tiring pedaling mode. Her bike-desk has enough room to fit the displayed computer screen on it. It’s time to start work. Links: Wearable Keyboard Video-wall
  35. Preparing for Coaching Dalva puts on her VR headset and talks to Siri. She wants to make sure that she is in sync with the wearable devices of her clients. The intent is to capture their emotional activity to evaluate their stress level, interests, and motivational drivers based on data from their work-related trackable patterns. She also wants to obtain any other information she is authorized to, including favorite words used when they communicate, work agenda, and progress against their goals. She also wants to actually see, if invited, their client’s real-time environment. She asks Siri to verify all the permissions and connections and quickly checks what she will need as a preparation for each session. Dalva displays key information about each session and the client in a separate window before her. Her first session of the day, a face-to-face session with Paulo, is scheduled to start soon.

  36. Coaching Session with Paulo Dalva meets Paulo, who is an engineer from Brazil. Paulo’s problem is related with the development of a new product. Dalva needs to unlock his creativity, so Paulo can bring more innovation to the product’s portfolio. To start with, Dalva asks Paulo to choose the surrounding landscape on the walls. They find themselves at the beach. She had already researched on what Paulo’s favorite music is. To make sure Paulo is relaxed, she plays it now in the background. Using the voice modulator app, Dalva synchronizes her voice to Paulo’s brainwaves to make him feel at ease. She asks coaching questions using Paulo’s favorite words. She also checks, with the prompts on the go, which verbal expressions can positively challenge him, and analyzes Paulo’s reactions with the iMotions app. Links: Live monitoring of visual attention, emotional responses and cognitive processes Voice Changer
  37. Coaching Session with Paulo (Contd.) Dalva and Paulo agree that the block is being caused by high expectations. Dalva creates a game with Paulo. Paulo projects a symbol of his high expectations (a big fire) and then fights it with some positive and enabling sentences for dousing the fire, like: I am capable of inventing a new product. When the fire disappears and the beach returns, 30 minutes of the session are dedicated to exploring different ideas, which Paulo immediately projects and verifies for their customer utility and business value. Ideas are harvested by the Intelligent Thought Catcher. While relaxing comfortably in a massage chair, Paulo gets his brain’s creative parts activated by signals sent from Dalva’s VR glasses. The Intelligent Note Taker records everything, so Siri can prepare a report and send it afterwards to both Paulo and Dalva. Links: Thought Catcher Massage chair scanning the spine

  39. Team Coaching Session with the Sales Representatives Dalva’s next session is a team coaching with the sales team of five. The sales representatives all speak different languages and work in different global locations, selling interior building materials for the medical industry. The meeting takes place in a virtual room, with real people holograms projected in VR reality. Dalva facilitates the meeting. Siri helps to prompt effective questions and spot conflicts as they arise. The team accesses different client data and brainstorms possible scenarios for increasing sales by 10% by the end of the financial year. They go through the client list and scan their facilities in order to offer the best designs and verify if there is still a real business demand for the products of ReuseiT.
  40. Coaching Session with Eduardo: Overshadowing The last session for today is with Eduardo. Dalva’s role is to be an invisible observer to overshadow his conversation with his team. She connects to Eduardo’s VR glasses and participates in the meeting. With the Intelligent Note Taker, Dalva records some scenes to gather material for the next session with Eduardo, in which they will explore different ways of handling this conversation, and where Dalva will model Eduardo’s behavior with questions and alternative scenarios.
  41. End of the Business Day: Reporting At the end of the business day, Dalva asks Siri to compile data from all the coaching sessions and send the reports to her. They work together to finalize smart versions of the reports – some of them include inspirational moments from the sessions and will be delivered in video format, while others will highlight the breakthrough moments. Data is visualized in a client-friendly manner so that it can be easily understood by each client. The reports are personalized as per each client’s preferred experiences. For example, Paulo’s report smells of the sea to evoke memories of a secure and creative environment. Dalva makes sure that her coaching is a unique experience that unlocks new perspectives and possibilities for her clients. Links: Smell evoking device Reporting
  42. After-Work Activities: Supervision Dalva wants to end the day on a good note. She schedules a training mode session with Carlos, an AI Supervision Data Script. While Dalva is on her way home, Siri connects with the Supervision AI, which has analyzed data from Dalva’s coaching sessions, including client feedback and neural analysis of clients’ reactions, and prepared a compilation of moments that could potentially be improved. Once home, Dalva jumps into the swimming pool. She places her watch within speaking distance in order to talk to Carlos. While relaxing in the pool and talking to the Supervision Coaching AI, Dalva replays the scenes that will improve her coaching capabilities. For the evening, Dalva has planned a dance class. With Patrick Swayze’s robo-hologram dancing to ‘The Time of My Life’, Dalva practices her moves. Links: Dancing with the hologram
