HoloLens is a new interface that disrupts and redefines our perception, mixing the physical and digital world into one reality. In this session we will explore how HoloLens transforms Healthcare and we will showcase how Weill Cornell Medicine uses HoloLens in cancer research to visualize and interact with complex genomic data.

6:00PM - NETWORKING: Doors open, head to the Microsoft Reactor on the 4th floor. We are hoping to have pizza and sodas; that's still to be arranged. Meet others in the group: We generally have developers as well as others interested in HoloLens, so if you're interested in working on a HoloLens project, or have a project you need help with, here's your chance to find someone!
