Embracing the 3D Display Renaissance: Harnessing the Power of Nanotechnology and AI to Accelerate Mass Adoption

3D displays are making a comeback in 2023. Thanks to recent advances such as their ability to switch seamlessly to 2D, they are being adopted in a host of familiar devices from tablets to laptops and monitors. Key to their widespread adoption by OEMs is the compaptibility with large content providers such as video calling, video streaming or social media platforms, gaming studios, as well as the ease for consumer to easily capture, create or convert their own content. In this talk we will review our efforts at Leia Inc to deploy 3D display hardware and AI software solutions to make 3D content creation and visualization available to everyone on any device.
