Technology has gone a long way. Today, you can see its influence all around you. Two of the significant improvements in technology are virtual reality and machine learning. These two, when combined, can greatly improve the sophistication of tech products and tools. Virtual reality is not a new thing. In fact, it has been around since the 1950s but its uses and applications are evident today. The combination of virtual reality and machine learning has taken technology to a new height.

Latest technological advancements along with in-depth research and study about virtual reality can be a tremendous game changer in the coming years. In fact, its uses are evident now not only in the gaming industry but in other spectrums such as entertainment, business, medicine, and engineering, to name a few.

The connection between machine learning and virtual reality is evident if you take into account the growing importance of artificial intelligence. A perfect example is the Oculus Rift VR; a headset that displays images that don’t require any form of artificial intelligence. It solely depends on the virtual reality technology, which in turn relies on artificial intelligence algorithms to emulate reality. It is the machine learning that transforms virtual reality.

Dov Katz is one of the people who are passionate about machine learning, virtual reality, and robotics as a whole. He played a huge role in the development of Oculus Rift VR. He was the one in charge of the original position tracking system. He worked as a senior engineer for computer vision and eventually became the head for computer vision until such time that Oculus was acquired by Facebook. Today, Dov Katz continues to improve his knowledge and understanding of modern technology. He was also involved in various research and patents.

The world today is mostly run by machines and powered by computers. Look around and you will see the evidence of modern technology. The cellular phones, smart televisions, gaming gadgets and electronics, modern hospital equipment, and industrial equipment, they are all powered by computers. They have a huge impact on human lives. They make the hard task easy, big world small, and entertainment possible with just a touch of fingers. Thanks to the continuous advancement in technology.

Dov KatzOne man who is interested in how machine works and the impact of computers in our daily lives is Dov Katz, also known as Dubi Katz. He is a computer expert from Israel. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science and electrical engineering. From Tel-Aviv University, he moved to the United States to have his masters and Ph.D. degree in computer science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. His interest in the modern technology has enabled him to land a career as a senior engineer in Oculus. He led various projects and became a significant part of the company. In fact, he was one of the brilliant minds behind the famous Oculus Rift VR, a virtual reality headset that when worn will deliver an immersive experience. Dov Katz was the one who created the original position tracking for Oculus Rift VR.

He became the head of computer vision at Oculus until such time that it was acquired by Facebook for over $2 billion both in cash and stock. Today, Dov Katz continues to improve his knowledge of computer vision, machine learning, and the modern technology as a whole.
