Anyone who’s ever streamed content from the web on a smartphone, saved digital files on a storage drive, played a video game with 3D graphics or used an LED to light the way should thank an engineer, scientist or researcher at HP Labs.
The technologies born in HP Labs over the last 50 years have not only changed the lives of generations but also have shaped Silicon Valley and the tech industry. Earlier this year, HP marked the 50th anniversary of HP Labs with a look back at some of its technology breakthroughs – inventions that have led to the development of products that we use every day.
At 50, HP’s wide-reaching research and development organization is again driving emerging technologies to market in areas most important to both customers and society.
This week, HP will share its vision for the future with journalists and influencers from around the world during a multi-day event at its Palo Alto headquarters, including a livestream of an honest discussion about the importance of diversity in a successful formula for innovation. Everyone, everywhere can virtually experience #Next50inTech events via News@HP, HP News on Periscope and Snapchat.
