How is AR and VR Radically Changing Our Realities?
Jul 10 - Peninsula

AR and VR will radically change the way we interact with reality and with each other. What role will these new platforms play in education, business, social networking and entertainment? During this fireside chat, Hugo Barra from Oculus (MIT Class of 2000) will share his vision of the post-smartphone computing era, as well as his personal story.

About the Speaker:
Hugo Barra
is the VP of ARVR Partnerships at Facebook based in NYC, and until recently led the Oculus team in Menlo Park. Prior to Facebook, Hugo lived in Beijing for 4 years and was Vice President of Xiaomi's Global division, responsible for the company's products and operations in all markets outside of China. Before that, he served as Vice President of Android Product Management at Google, overseeing global development of the Android operating system. At MIT, Hugo received two undergrad degrees in Courses 6 & 15 ('00) and an M.Eng. ('02). His first job was an IAP externship in the DisneyQuest VR project at Walt Disney Imagineering in LA, and his first company out of MIT was a mobile software startup called LOBBY7, founded in 1999 with fellow MIT classmates. Hugo is originally from Brazil and was an active member of MIT's International Students Association and Club Latino. He lived at Baker House, was a member of the MIT Squash JV team, and UROP at the Media Media Lab and AI Lab. His favorite activity in the Bay Area are salsa nights at Cigar Bar.
