IEEE Digital Reality, an IEEE Future Directions initiative, serves to explore and enable the coming Digital Transformation through collaboration among technologists, engineers, regulators, and ethicists around the world. The Digital Transformation is fueled by advances in technology, such as sensors and actuators, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML). By leveraging these technologies and others being developed such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), and Digital Twins, the line between the physical world and the digital world will be increasingly less distinct. Applications are already quickly emerging in the fields of education, manufacturing, sharing services, and more. IEEE Digital Reality is working with multiple constituencies in academia, industry, and government, and your contribution and participation in the Technical Community is welcome.

Please join our Technical Community to stay informed of our latest news, events, and activities.
IEEE Digital Reality is proud to collaborate with IEEE IC Industry Consortium on Learning Engineering (ICICLE) which aims to identify and build upon opportunities for supporting learning engineers to leverage current and future VR, AR, mixed reality (MR), and other XR technologies for supporting and enhancing learning and human performance in evidence-based and research-grounded ways.
IEEE Digital Reality is an active participant at the annual Augmented World Expo (AWE).
IEEE Digital Reality currently hosts the Digital Reality Podcast Series where the initiative talks with industry leaders in VR, AR, XR, digital twins, AI, ML, the digital transformation, and much more, keeping you at the forefront of advancements in these ever-growing immersive technologies.
