High Fidelity: VR as the Next Disruptor

Dec 2, 2015 · San Francisco, United States of America

VR will be as transformative as the Internet and Smartphone before it. High Fidelity's Co-founder & CEO, Philip Rosedale, will explain why and talk about what he thinks are the steps and software/hardware needed to get there.

Bio: In 1995, Philip Rosedale created an innovative Internet video conferencing product ("FreeVue"), which was later acquired by RealNetworks, where in 1996 he went on to become Vice President and CTO. In 1999, Rosedale left RealNetworks, founded Linden Lab and built a virtual civilization called Second Life, creating an open-ended, Internet-connected virtual world. Following Second Life, Rosedale worked on several projects related to distributed work and computing. Excited by innovations in these areas and the proliferation of new VR-enabling devices, he re-entered the world of VR in 2013, founding High Fidelity. Philip holds a B.S. in physics from University of California, San Diego.
