#23 Improv, Not Screenplays: Holographic Learnings w/ Dave and Eric Rak

Creating mixed reality experiences for HoloLens shatters the existing paradigms designers and developers have come to understand. As early Microsoft HoloLens partners, Dave Curry and Eric Rak were invited to speak to an incoming Holographic Academy class to provide useful insight for teams preparing to start working with HoloLens.

If you’d like to click along with the slides from our talk, the PDF is available on SlideShare at Improv, Not Screenplays: Iterative Holographic Design.

#21 Will Robots Replace Creative Professionals?

Robots and artificial intelligence are part of our daily routine. Algorithms influence everything from what we see in our feed to where we go out for dinner and drinks. We have apps that make creative decisions, like choosing the best photos from our camera roll, but will robots ever replace creative professionals?

At April and May’s CreativeMornings Seattle, Dave posed the question to the #cmseattle community and got a variety of thought-provoking answers from Royal, Jonathan, Dmitry, Jasmine, Archimedes, Joe, Jeremy, Matt, Brian, Colin, Marianne, Fancy, Megan, Per, Rob, John, Nicole, Taylor, Mark, Alexander, Peter, Emily, Kane, and Meredith.

AND HOORAY! I’m Kermit-the-Frog-YAY excited about my new theme song, composed and performed by the mysterious Breakmaster Cylinder. Working with BMC was a huge treat for me and I keep pinching myself to prove it actually happened!
