|Enabling rich and immersive experiences in virtual and augmented reality
Vice President of Virtual Reality
Mountain View, CA, USA
Virtual and augmented reality offer the promise of enhancing the human experience by making computing more immersive, natural, and contextual. In time, we'll be able to walk through the ruins of Machu Picchu as if we're really there; speak with friends on the other side of the world as if they're in the room with us; and look out onto an unfamiliar street and know everything about it. Getting to this point will require an efficient and scalable software platform that brings together rich services with compelling applications and tools, all backed by high performance, power-efficient CPUs, GPUs, and sensors, and amazing next-generation displays.
