New Horizons in VR Intelligence and Analytics: The VR intelligence market is poised for dramatic growth over the next 3-5 years, as the scope of VR intelligence and analytics platforms expands rapidly. This session will highlight some of the most interesting trends in VR intelligence and analytics, including the synthesis of big data and virtual reality, situational intelligence for VR applications of The Internet of Things, and the use of virtual worlds to test and simulate virtual reality content and experiences.

Enhancing VR Game Experiences with Leading-Edge Intelligence: Understanding player behavior and flow in conventional video games is key, especially considering the nature of game dynamics - it’s even more essential in VR games. In this session, VR game developers discuss their robust use of diverse intelligence and analytics tools to uncover prime insights about user interaction in their games, and improve game navigation and user satisfaction.

Going Deep - Mining Experiential and Behavioral Data in VR: Fully mining user interaction in virtual reality experiences ultimately requires multidimensional insights into their behavior. This session will examine the special effectiveness of experiential and behavioral data in providing deeper, richer, and more expansive insights into user interaction in virtual reality. 

Expanding the Augmented Reality Analytics Frontier: Given the increasing convergence between virtual reality and augmented reality and rise of immersive analytics models, AR analytics has special implications for the VR market and immersive analytics in general.  This session will examine the growing  impact of  very diverse AR analytics techniques in such applications as entertainment,  brand marketing, training, and sports.

Special Demos of Virtual Reality Analytics Provider Showcase: The Virtual Reality Analytics Showcase will help you develop a "short list" of technology and service providers who can meet your particular needs.
