Proprio CEO Gabriel Jones Speaks at AWE Online 2020
Proprio co-founder and CEO Gabriel Jones hosted a virtual session followed by a live Q&A during AWE 2020, which occurred May 26 – 29, 2020 entirely online. Highlighted by Forbes as “the most essential AR/VR conference and expo,” Augmented World Expo (AWE) covers augmented reality, virtual reality, mixed reality, and all enabling emerging technologies such as AI haptics and 5G. In its 11th year, AWE Online took the annual conference global with its first all-digital version of the event.
Jones’ session entitled, “More than a Simulation: How Mixed Reality will Give Surgeons Superpowers,” took place on May 29, 2020 as part of the online conference’s Healthcare & Wellness track. During his virtual session Jones discussed how computer vision, robotics, machine learning, and immersive interfaces are converging to transform how surgeons perform in the operating room, and shared how Proprio’s interdisciplinary team of product designers, engineers, and surgeons are working together to solve hard problems in healthcare. His presentation was immediately followed by a live Q&A session where audience members had the opportunity to interact and connect with him from anywhere in the world.
