Review: VR Business Club – VR Cast – with Leslie Shannon, Head of Ecosystem and Trend Scouting at Nokia

At Monday we had Leslie Shannon, Head of Ecosystem and Trend Scouting at Nokia, as guest speaker in the VR Cast, with inspired moderation by Michael Alf.
Following the sale of its telephone business to Microsoft, Nokia is once again focusing on equipping telecom operators around the world. 

Therefore, understanding how the Internet is evolving is critical to success. And Leslie is the spearhead of this development for Nokia. At the VR Cast, she shared her perspective on the spatial Internet or the „Mirror World“. The famous Kevin Kelly calls this the big third platform next to the Internet and social media. Imagine that everything on earth has a digital twin in this world. Apparently, all major technology companies are already investing billions of dollars. On top of that, there are promising start-ups that want to be ahead. 

As Leslie explained, there are already many applications – especially in the gaming segment – and even the first new business models that combine the offline world and the spatial Internet. Watch the livestream replay with Leslie, who also answered all the audience’s questions with profound knowledge.
