With more than 70,000 attendees from 160 countries and +2500 journalists, the Web Summit is considered one of the most important technology conferences in the world.

D-EYE attended this three-day tech event with a booth in the Alpha program of the Web Summit. During the conference, D-EYE presented the See Far solution to the participants, companies and organization visiting the booth.

The See Far project gained interest from both attendees, CEOs and companies, receiving feedbacks regarding possible features that could be implemented and raising awareness about this EU project. For example, magnification and contrast enhancement are considered as the most important features to be implemented. Most of the attendees interviewed expressed their opinion about the price of the device on the market (price range 700-1000).

Technology trends have shown raising interests in the healthcare sector with special focus to technologies that can help users in their daily routines. Moreover, VR and AR are considered as a hot topic at this moment: Lenovo presented its smart glasses “Think Reality” which presents both AR and VR for working environments: https://www.lenovo.com/ww/en/solutions/thinkreality

Moreover, the Web Summit dedicated an important focus on AI and its implementation in both the work environment and daily routines.
