The Conversation

In this conversation, we dig into that report, including the motivations behind the initiative and how they are enacting some of the recommendations within the report.

They do clarify their intention is not to build AR Cloud infrastructure or a particular data set. Christine Perey explains the goal is to enable interoperability and connectedness between an infinite number of public and private AR Clouds.

They make the case for both broad and targeted involvement by the community to ensure the spatial internet is even more inclusive, safe, and broadly useful than what has come before.
