We’re helping usher in an era in which

  • physicians use sophisticated virtual-reality gear to operate from remote locations on patients
  • smart cars communicate in order to avoid accidents
  • hundreds of millions of illiterate adults around the globe have access to needed educational materials
  • Internet of Things (IoT) technology revolutionizes the way we run our homes and businesses
