PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced that its LiveWorx® digital transformation conference will feature speakers and new content offerings on artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, product design, and more at the June 10-13 event. Driven by this year’s theme, Augmented Workforce: Taking Human Capabilities to New Heights, several industry visionaries have been selected to discuss how these emerging technologies enable users to unlock new levels of productivity, insight, and efficiency in the digital enterprise.

LiveWorx is a global digital transformation conference and marketplace for solutions engineered for the new era of industrial innovation. The four-day event features hundreds of breakout sessions, Track Spotlight presentations, and powerful Keynote speakers set in an immersive, interactive technology playground. This year’s theme places a strong focus on providing the expected 6,000+ attendees with a personalized, connected journey that shows how people are complemented by technology rather than replaced by it.
Innovators Take the Stage at LiveWorx
LiveWorx will showcase influential technology trailblazers, bestselling authors, and futurists. Automated processes and emerging technologies that will be showcased at the conference can be used to ‘augment’ workers, taking the things that make them uniquely human – creativity, decision making, and intuition – and making them even more powerful. Bringing this theme of an augmented workforce to life are:
Pattie Maes, a professor in MIT’s Program in Media Arts and Sciences, runs the Media Lab’s Fluid Interfaces research group, which aims to radically reinvent the human-machine experience. Her interest is in cognitive enhancement, or how immersive and wearable systems can actively assist people with memory, attention, learning, decision making, communication, and well-being. She has received numerous awards, and her 2009 TED talk, “Meet the SixthSense Interaction,” is among the most-watched TED talks ever with more than ten million views. Pattie Maes will be a Keynote presenter on Thursday, June 13.
