To Make AR Worth Wearing a Computer on Your Face?”

 

Samsung Next, the software and services innovation arm of Samsung, develops products, invests in startups and acquires businesses ready for scale in the frontier technology areas of VR, AR and MR (Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality). After studying the intersection of media theory and public policy at Princeton, Jacob earned an MBA at MIT Sloan, where he co-founded VR/AR @ MIT. His talk will survey the advancements in these fields that have generated excitement and anticipation in the marketplace, but have yet to become an ever-present part of our lives.  He will also appraise the further technological progress that will be required for AR to become so seamless and so realistic that it will be worth wearing computers on our faces.

North Korea, the U.S. & the Search for a Solution

Evans Revere '76 Talk

(Tuesday, Oct. 24, 7:30 p.m., location: Friend Center, Convocation Room)

 

In 2012, Evans led PA3 members in a fascinating precept-like session discussing the complex diplomacy between the DPRK, the USA and China.  Clearly, this issue has moved to the forefront of foreign policy concerns, and Evans remains deeply involved. We're most fortunate that he has agreed to revisit this topic with PA3. Space is limited, so please RSVP to Tom Swift at tswift@alumni.princeton.edu.

More about Evans: Evans Revere '76 graduated with a degree in East Asian studies. He retired from the foreign service in 2007, having served in numerous capacities including  Acting Assistant Secretary of State for East Asian and Pacific Affairs and Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, managing U.S. relations with the Asia-Pacific region and leading an organization of 950 American diplomats and 2,500 Foreign Service National employees. He has been a visiting lecturer at the Woodrow Wilson School and CEO of the Korea Society. He is currently a Senior Advisor to the Albright Stonebridge Group, a non-resident Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution, and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. He has traveled to Pyongyang many times. He posts frequently on Brookings "Order from Chaos" blog, such as this September post.
