Trust in Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality
Being enthusiastic about building teams and products as well as disruptive approaches in industrial environments - bringing people together to change for good. I am a believer in purpose-driven alliances and projects where each partners or team members strengths increases each others value through the combination of knowledge, know-how, intercultural experiences and different viewing angles.
Purpose, seen beyond "making money", will drive any alliance and team to its best outcomes. New technologies in the field of Augmented / Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence will additionally open new dimensions for such alliances in engineering, education, art, charity and others. TAIVR summarizes my passion about how new technologies like Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence are going to support and change our traditional perception of society and business.

The following best practices assume that the VR Collaboration platform and hardware is already selected. 1) Onboard new users To meet in Virtual Reality is a brand-new and uncommon way of communication. Before calling into the VR Room - make sure all participants know what to expect and have at least experienced the VR Room once before. Ideally, all users have pre-set devices in their hands. Upfront of the first VR workshop, invite new users e.g. personally or into a simple video conference to explain: purpose of VR collaboration, known advantages and limits, basic usage of the headset, basic usage of the tool, ideal surrounding / space. Jointly enter the VR Room then and guide with simple instructions to use mandatory functions like moving around, writing, sticky notes or switching rooms (whatever is used in your later workshop) Photo taken in GLUE / Lake Cubic space 2) Define meeting / workshop rules Just as EVERY other form of meeting or workshop, define rules which every participan
I am working in cross-culture and functional diversed environments for quite a while. To master the challenge of "translation" between different types of individuals - extroverts & introverts, techies and sales, experts and generalist, blue collar and white collar etc. - was always my highest motivation to plan, moderate and run joint workshops Soon I discovered "Liberating Structures" (by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless) as extremely valuable methods to unleash the entire potential of diverse groups . (Further information in Links below) No matter the groups were in a phase of ideation, exploring best practises, analyzing test phases or in their regular strategy review - I always found simple to use methods and created strings which - beside an experienced moderator - only need post-its, markers and some space to divide larger groups . The efficiency of the methology works great in face-to-face settings. And as my team mostly were spread around the globe
During the past year, in the middle of a worldwide health and economic crisis, the hashtag #weareinthistogether went viral for a while. It was used in a wide spread of industries and also covered my “home industry” – aviation. The feeling of #weareinthistogether let to a new social helpfulness between individuals and companies which empowered and inspired creative solutions. The purpose to assist, help and to provide safety and support as far as possible to the people around us – it kept us going. Moving forward and to fight our own uncertainties. But over time I can’t help to recognize the hashtag misused to cover the sales approach under the impression of unity. So what really counts to keep the positive spirit alive for collaborative approaches? For those who know me, it is no secret that I always have been a believer in networks, cooperation and combining strengths of individuals and companies. No matter if locally or globally, within single industries or e
