Just a few days after India made its mark in the Nobel winners list, we have Pranav Mistry, doing us proud again!
Do you remember the gesture-driven Sixth Sense system – the gesture controlled computer which was wearable?
It was developed by him at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Labs. This invention earned him global fame for the computer registered gestures made by hand as input and performed tasks accordingly. It was truly an invention for the future.
This 38 years old was born in Palanpur, Gujarat, on the 14th of May and joined Samsung as the Director of Research back in 2012. From then onwards, it has been a steady upward curve for Mistry.
In 2013, Samsung unveiled its first ever Galaxy Gear smart watch which was developed by a core research team of which Mistry was a part as well. The same year, he bagged the prestigious title of Young Global Leader. In 2017, Pranav Mistry became the vice president of Samsung Electronics.
And then on the 26th of October this year, Samsung officially announced him as the CEO of Samsung’s Research Division.
If one is to track Mistry’s work history, then he has already worked with NASA, Microsoft, Google, amongst others.
Congratulations and our best wishes to you, Pranav!
