In studio on Thursday 5 June we hosted Johan Walters from Digital Narrative.

BizcommunityWhat exactly is augmented reality?

Johan Walters: It is quite broad, but in essence it is the use of a smart device to interact with the real world using image recognition and geo location and get a different perspective of real world items.

BizcommunityAugmented reality is new, but how has SA taken to AR?

Johan Walters: The SA uptake has started slowly, but the problem is the augmented reality use by SA companies has been isolated and not integrated into a bigger marketing campaign. This year has seen quite a few new AR campaigns popping up.

Also in studio on 5 June we sat with the always passionate and digitally turned on Dave Duarte.

BizcommunityWhat is Digital Leadership?

Dave Duarte: Digital Leadership in short is about looking at how the way we organise ourselves has changed, we need to always be in touch, which has changed the way we manage people and connect. Even if you are in an office, you are dealing with an explosion of emails, multiple real time contacts and Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp. So leaders need to start thinking about how this impacts their culture and leadership itself, which moves from being charisma driven to topic and interest driven.

BizcommunityWhat is the next big thing for Dave Duarte?

Dave Duarte: We are launching a cool new event, called Twig, which we're going to flip out to a YouTube channel, which is non profit and community driven. We are also developing a super cool app to verify learning and it's a pretty cool augmented reality learning app designing learning adventures.
