Matt Miesnieks, Partner, Super Ventures
Matt is currently a VC at SuperVentures investing in pre-seed AR startups while also incubating a stealth startup. He has worked professionally for 8 years building AR products at Samsung, Dekko & Layar, and has a 10+ year global mobile/telecom career prior to this in executive commercial and technical roles.
Matt will be speaking about: “Apple’s ARKit has captured our imagination by delivering AR that “just works” on a mass market smartphone. Google’s Tango and Other SDK’s are all compromised in various ways. Matt will discuss why this is, with various insider and behind the scenes insights from his time spent building the first fused 6dof smartphone tracker at Dekko in 2011, and building AR hardware prototypes at Samsung, along with his relationships with technical leaders of the Computer Vision teams at all the major AR platform companies. He’ll describe the path taken by ARKit from invention to productization, and also describe what’s coming next in Computer Vision for AR & why that is needed. The discussion will be technical, while also highlighting the UX and Commercial impact of the technical capabilities.”
VR Tuesday is a regular monthly meet up focused on the business side of the Virtual Reality and Augmented reality industries. REGISTRATION MUST BE COMPLETED ON EVENTBRITE.
