EON Reality partners with SCU to integrate AI in hospitality education

THE United States-based EON Reality, a global leader in virtual and augmented reality industry and education solutions powered by artificial intelligence (AI), is to partner with Sandals Corporate University (SCU) to provide cutting-edge spatial AI technology to its professionals.

Leveraging EON Reality’s AI-powered XR (extended reality) solutions, such as the EON’s AI Assistant, SCU aims to accelerate learning and enhance information retention for its professionals through immersive and interactive experiences.

Additionally, the advanced AI-based features of EON Reality’s suite of offerings will enable SCU to streamline the creation of customised training content.

EON Reality’s state-of-the-art solutions blend AI and XR with the world’s most expansive learning library, with more than six million assets, and a code-free environment for content development which is an advantage for both learners and educators.

Throughout this training experience, the EON AI Assistant will offer support, facilitating the creation, distribution, and consumption of information.

SCU, as part of the Sandals Resorts International brand, holds an esteemed place in the hospitality sector. Through the unique adult education programme offered by SCU, team members have access to comprehensive hospitality-specific training and academic qualifications.

“We are extremely enthusiastic about collaborating with Sandals Corporate University. This partnership underscores the transformative potential of spatial AI and EON AI Assistant,” said Dan Lejerskar, founder, CEO, and chairman of EON Reality.

“Our AI modules could indeed be the defining solution for our partners, and SCU presents an exemplary use case of this success,” said Lejerskar.

A distinguishing feature of EON Reality’s technology is the use of spatial AI, equipped with a fully interactive avatar capable of perceiving and engaging with its surroundings.

This AI-driven avatar can demonstrate, explain, and teach various hospitality topics using XR demonstrations while also guiding and assisting users in real-world tasks and providing real-time feedback.

“This is an extremely exciting partnership and a first in the Caribbean. The SCU will be able to utilise amazing innovation to provide a unique and more integrated learning experience for our team members across the region.

“Incorporating the new technologies offered by EON Reality and modifying the way we train form part of a comprehensive approach to ensure that our team members gain important and invaluable exposure within the hospitality industry,” said Sandals Resorts’ Group CEO Gebhard Rainer.

Resulting from collaborations with leading global enterprises and world-class academic institutions, EON Reality’s solutions have emerged as the primary tools and content delivery mediums for AI-powered XR education and industry solutions.

This partnership with SCU is expected to provide hospitality professionals with immersive experiences that will revolutionise hospitality education and training at all levels.
