Imagine Meetup: Where Retail Meets Automation

Until recently, online shopping was considered the future of retail. Now it is one of the most recognized industries today, and it is still poised to be the primary retail experience as far as time can tell. Yet, besides the ease of retail that exists today, shopping currently is missing that personalized experience that sometimes can only be experienced in person or with time — until now.

Completely customized automatic shopping experiences have arrived, so what does this mean for retail? We are also excited to revisit this topic around virtual beings especially as we discuss artificial intelligence, virtual assistants, and how other “smart” things are shaping the future of storytelling, branding, shopping, and transmedial entertainment. Join us at this Moody MeetUp as we show off our Connected Corner — the smart home of the future! This is also a great chance to experience VR/AR yourself, but also as a way to network with other students and faculty interested in bridging industries with emerging technology. All are welcome!

Every 2nd Wednesday of each month from 6-8 PM, Imagine Moody comes together to connect the Austin Media Community with students and faculty at UT through an informal network. At each MeetUp, there is ample time to demo emerging technologies that have impacted industries we interact with everyday, and to bring ideas of your own to discuss with others interested in the industry. MeetUps are hosted on UT campus at our Imagine Lab (CMA 6.154)... the perfect place to collaborate and develop the next big thing here at UT!
