"Today, some sad news, according to a report from insider Microsoft scrapped plans for a HoloLens three in 2021, shifting instead to a mixed reality device is going to produce with Samsung and leaving the HoloLens team quote inflamed. So will we ever see another hollow lens quote while Microsoft insists it's committed to HoloLens and will release new versions in the future. Three insiders say Microsoft and recent months scrapped plans for what would have been the HoloLens three, and at least one person expects that this is the end of the road, at least for the product as we know it. Sources say Microsoft has also agreed to a partnership with Samsung to develop a new mixed reality device that has inflamed divisions within the team. A high profile Pentagon contract that wants burnish the HoloLens image is behind schedule, plagued by quality and performance problems. And internal disagreements about the priorities of Microsoft's broader mixed reality strategy have triggered a wave of departures and raise doubts about its commitment to the HoloLens device. Inside Microsoft's mixed reality unit run by HoloLens co creator and Microsoft technical fellow Alex kitman, more than 20 current and former employees who spoke to insider described confusion and strategic uncertainty as different factions argue about its future. The factions in recent months have been split on whether the mixed reality unit should double down on its own hardware or put more firepower behind trying to build the go to software platform for the metaverse and whether the unit should continue to focus on Microsoft's main customer base of enterprise customers or create products for consumers. Ruben caballero, a former Apple executive Microsoft hired in 2020 to run device engineering and mixed reality and AI under kitman. Once the team to focus on consumers and the metaverse, at odds with those who believe Microsoft should double down on the enterprise market and the military some insiders say, it's unclear which, if any of these different visions for the future of the unit are currently favored or even being pursued by management, even to some within the company. But the Microsoft insider suggests that it's that very sense of uncertainty that's contributed to lower team morale and driven some towards rivals like Facebook parent company meta quote. You'd have to say all things considered. This has been a pretty tough day for the metaverse. No Twitter space tonight, Chris and I are taking the week off for various reasons, including my birthday. Gonna head upstate this weekend to hopefully just read books, play in the snow, maybe ski a little bit, play some Nintendo with the kids, and not check the news. For about 48 hours. So nothing big happened this weekend. I will be here tomorrow though before we leave. So talk to you then..

"Awesome. So that was kevin's conversation with stephen. Teach what i found. Remarkable was and you touched on this When we were talking earlier kevin is just the multidisciplinary aspect of everything that he does and the fact that he's kind of using those different disciplines to really make things better but what struck me by that i think first and foremost was he's lived sony different places like as as a young kid. He grew up all over the world and i have to think that that really had an impact on his worldview and plays a role in this multidisciplinary approach that he's taken to his work. Yeah i mean. I think it's really amazing You know just talking to see watching the work that he's done how much he gets out of this broad curiosity by not being one dimensional by understanding that the world is really really broad. I think it's absolutely In his experience growing up his influence that but just coupling that broad curiosity with the desire to make him bill old I think you see in a lot of folks like from your bill gates in some of the founders of our modern technological competing revolution like that. Those two things like that broad curiosity and the impulse to like go do something with the curiosity to make thing Is like a really powerful combo and you really see it. In steve's work you really can. And what i like about it is is you're right. We have founders. We have examples. You know like bill gates and others. You have this broad curiosity in this broad kind of since of interest but a lot of times has workers in as scientists or engineers or or whatever the case may be your kind of encouraged starting school to focus on one thing and to to really do that and like they kind of hone into yet to be successful. If you want to grow your career if you want to grow your your profession whatever it is you need to do this one thing and what i think is great about stevie is that he's really he's done all these different things and he's got this curiosity and he's able to show no you. Can we these things together and you can be successful and if anything having these. Additional perspectives can sometimes unlock stuff. That you might not be able to Unlike otherwise yet it's it's really it's a great observation I i used to until relatively late in my career. Feel guilty that I was broadly interested in things rather than just interested in a single thing that i could focus on in like polish in craft in perfect and just be the absolute best at that one thing but i was never wired like that in my parents when i was a little kid even gave me permission like i would get interested in a whole bunch of musical instruments like i played the flute and the clarinet. And the piano and ling. I never mastered any of those instruments And you know. I would play around with the thing and so learn what what was stimulating to learn And then i would move to the next thing And i felt bad about that for many many years And you know. I'm just sort of realizing with these conversations that we have host stevie and like we've had many other folks like that on the podcast that Mastery is important and you have to invest a lot of energy in getting good thing but it's okay to do that across a bunch of different things and sometimes magic happens when you can connect the dots between a whole bunch of different things that you've gotten reasonably good at no..

Optics person is now new field you know that kind of migrated towards envelope life evolves and if you have the tools evolve with it i think you you set yourself up for happy above mice. Yeah i i couldn't agree more with this notion of getting yourself into a position where you've got a huge breadth of skills in like. Maybe maybe the most important thing that anyone can do. This is what i tell my kids. All the time is like you have to figure out how to learn How to learn to love learning and eat a if you are always curious always wanting to like understand how things work to and it's like absolutely necessary at airfield because the technology itself is changing so fast like Most of what we use in our day to day job right now didn't exist What we started our careers. What we were getting hid totally. Learn this as we moved right. Yeah and you know part of it is where inventing it in part of it is like we're adapting to what's going on around us but it's sort sort of interesting thing like we Part of our job is like we're way out on the frontier of what's possible And the you know the interesting thing about that is like every day like you're sort of taking the step across that border from possible to impossible like everything's impossible before you figure it out It just requires like intense commitment to like learning new things and curiosity a determination and You know all things that i think you You're sort of exhibiting Every day and like that your group exhibits which is just. It's tremendous don't have to miami just mentioned my team like my you know like The team members that i have are phenomenal.

"Stevie today would You give advice to stevie from twenty one years ago You know like you could go back in time and like whispering. You're younger ear. Like what would you Would you tell yourself. That's such a great question. And i appreciate that. Could actually again right now. It's funny. I don't know why been getting a lot of requests to to mentor or give advice to kids especially transitioning to college and the thing that i was taught i've held dear and near to my heart and used as kind of a guiding principle is distinct talked about in the beginning. This this thinking of a multidisciplinary nature where what you wanna do is create a unique combination of skills that sets you sell part from everyone else that makes you unique drawing from crazy different fields in so studying different subjects fusing disciplines together. I mean these things are silos natured. And was around the people that put those files around their nature. Nature doesn't see those silos they use all of it right and nature's our best engineer our best inventor and therefore you know use it. Another one is Gary start weather taught me this. He's one of my early mentors and microsoft gary stark. Weather's a dear person you. The inventor of the laser printer had an amazing career and he taught me that. If your idea isn't absurd enough is probably not good enough and to really kind of stretch and do and he actually told me he said. Don't worry about people stealing ideas. Because if it's really a good idea you have to shut down their throats but he had like all these looms ical sayings of at. He's built up over over time and he was. I would say that. That sort of thinking is quite helpful. It just shows that you have to the goes kind of that. The whole serendipity of thinking where you don't know what you don't know and you wanna kind of get out of the fray you know and if i were to go back in time and kind of whisper a little bit of my ear you know. I really liked the journey. I went through loved it. I like you know doing three. Internships and microsoft really exposed me to a whole bunch of things turning down a fulltime offer from microsoft between my undergrad and grad was really important. Because i needed that. Grad school exposure that grad school is closure again advice for everyone..

"That the machine can go do something with which is very different from what you do with machine learning where you are teaching a machine how to solve problem with data and examples And it's it's a very profound shifts in the way that you harness the power of a computer. And i exactly what you said is the is the real possibility. It's the opening up the power of a machine to a huge number of people. Maybe everyone to very sophisticated ways. Help them solve their problems. I can't agree with you more. That is that is that is the gold. That is absolutely as democratizing. You know things that took like eight years in college to go figure out and now you handed to millions of people in the world and imagine what the world could do. Yeah you know without ability. I mean you just continuing to evolve society and culture to develop more sophisticated tools that have become more and more ingrained in our culture in the way of living and how we actually go do things and it's gonna affect every industry everything that we do right it's gonna gonna change. And that's the thing. I wish i could like pause time in gold fifty years ford because i wanna go see that or a hundred years four because it's going to be so different than it is today and the other point is you know to your earlier point about agi. I mean like you know. These are just things were i think. Society ends up getting a little anxiety over in the beginning like any technology. I mean you know like when photography will just i accepted people thought like when you took a picture. You stole their spirit. You know like out at ailing. We capture picture of all the time. You're not you're really steering. You're not really capturing spirit of like you know. As i think it just takes a little time because it's about understanding and what it can do and really what it can't do. Yeah and it's you know it's also about like figuring out what the norms are like. You know what the acceptable use. That'd be like with cameras. For instance like there's papa razzi like all sorts of obnoxious uses technology. And we've of learn you know wear yet where it's appropriate to take a picture whereas inappropriate like where it's legal and where it's illegal and Like we'll have to develop all of that stuff as well with With any new technology that we build The you know the thing that we have to do. I think is we have to help. Everyone understand what the tools are capable of so that Like as many people as possible have a voice said deciding how the tool should be used As quickly as possible. Because that's the true way to make sure that we get these norms mapped out and a reasonable way Quickly i think that's one of the really things i admire about. Microsoft general is that. I feel like we believe. We have such a responsibility to make sure that evolves well for governments for our society for people and we are so responsible in that category and and very proactive. You know in regards to that. And i think that's that's cool because that level productivity allows us to go invent this technology. Yeah you know. The thing is doesn't mean that we get it right a hundred percent of the time but it does mean that like we feel a very serious commitment to goals seek to write You know as quickly as we can. Yeah so you know switching gears a little bit. I wanted to acids question in two ways So it it's about advice for people who are starting their careers. And so i at love to know if there's anything that.

"Yeah it's interesting like most of my output over the course of my career have been software things Where yes hard that they about like how to even put it into a bed to keep and like. It's a shame. Because i do think that the software that you've written that hasn't worked in the bow. Med like we treated as a febrile in it. Like evaporates and goes away and like they're just lessons in there right now. i. I will occasionally think to myself. Well how i. I wish i had that code. That i wrote back in grad school or i wish i you know like what was it that i learned from like this. They didn't quite work. And and like we just like. The tools have changed so dramatically. That i've just lost a huge amounts of this code that i've That i've written where. I just can't see it at a war. I love at that you that you do like. I think it's a credibly incredibly interesting. So are what are the things that i would love to get your perspective on is what you think. The most interesting technological shifts have been over the past few years and like what are you excited about over the over. The next few you know the one that has really guided guided a lot of the work. That i have done. Is this disruptive evolution of new competing form factors. And you know the thing that that i've seen that changes That gives us grants the ability of creating these new types of forms that allow us to put these forms into different environments and different use cases and the different places on the body in two different places in the environment is the creation of interactive technologies. Basically how do i digitized information. And how do. I communicate that information back to you. So display technology you know has been an amazing kind of transformation since the old crt days and that has really enabled us to build all sorts of computers. The sensing technology where you know the old days..

"Idea that the human is always at the center of what it is that we're doing and like our purpose is to build tools for humans to help them do more of what they want to do And it's one of the things that makes me really excited about the work that you do because like you just constantly exploring that That landscape of opportunities. Like i've seen so many demos that you've created since i've been here over the past four years where you're just constantly looking for those opportunities. How do you decide what to poke at next. You know one of the things that i've learned over the past twenty years is that ideas come from everywhere and one of the important. Things that i have to do is leave. Room for serendipity. Leave room for the creative process. I learned so many times that if you are overly prescriptive in the beginning you're probably going to stifle invention and you're going to stifle ingenuity but at the same time if you let it go hog wild. You won't get things that are essentially guided or directed or useful to the business and so that's kind of the beauty about the culture that we have in our group you know the plight size scooping so close to windows devices understanding getting signal about the problems that we're having and we have you know a fair degree of ability to try to solve problems that are directly focused for the business. And we try to do that. By central creating portfolio projects that are from near term to slightly further term and ensure. That what we do actually have impact today but potentially can give us room to change the direction of the future. Which is i think a beautiful way of looking at things like especially this idea that y'all you really do need to leave room for sarah deputy because some of the interactions between creative people in the interactions between complex technologies and the interaction between the now and the future are so complex. That if you believe that you understand everything and You know you're in control Like you're probably wrong. One hundred percent you know and the way we manage that in the past you know it's funny like people would make fun of me like early in my career i would. I would do so many projects and some of them were good and made it in the products Some of them were kind of crazy and didn't necessarily making the products. But i knew that there was a thread there and i would put them in a box. But a label on 'em and put him on a shelf and so i was known for like this. You know this archive of plastic boxes and bins of little tiny research projects. And you know. When ideas would kind of reshuffle themselves. I would go up. Look at ben. To see what i've done in the past been out you know and then like see what i did because these are all like functional demos prototypes..

"We try to mix all these kind of technologies together to create optimal systems. One of the things that i've always believed and it may be a convenient belief not a not. A good one is that you can be so much more creative what you have lots of different tools that you have at your disposal and you don't need to be a master even at all of the tools but just knowing a little bit about a lot of things can let you discover stuff that you wouldn't be able to do otherwise approach problems in ways that you would be able to do otherwise and it seems like. That's something that you You may believe as well. Hundred percent of big part of invention engineering product development is managing complexity and moving complexity around in. Like if you think about high level what we can do and if you understand the different systems and the different disciplines you can effectively move complexity around where it's really hard one area but not so hard in another area. That's why. I love this boundary. That i kind of work in between hardware and software can i. I can move back and forth. You know you know. I could do something really hard in optics and like man but then shifted over to software and software essentially solved the problem instead of doing optic or vice versa right. Yeah and i think it's everywhere. I mean just a just an example like i I spent a couple of hours yesterday. Making make an amount for a tablet It just sort of a silly thing. But i wound up Solving the problem of had a whole this Little touch screen tablet On a flexible are With three d. printing and laser cutting and cnc machine in and there were parts like mechanically of building. This thing that were easy in each of those tool sets. That would have been very hard in the others And like just having those tools at your disposal and knowing how to use them Like made a thing that would've taken a few days to build something that took like our which is awesome..

"Swarm of them would have kind of emergent behavior. And i wanted to kind of replicate that but that led me to something else and i got into an idea where instead of trying to build a control system for robot. Why not just deal it. And i went to entomology department at averaging attack. And i said i had say where i want to use a control system from an insect to power my robot and the guy doc boone. Kiss lucas was his. Name's like okay. That's really crazy but let's try it. And we took a cockroach and we attach the cockroach to one of my robots we used a probes to kind of get signal from the insect itself and we had the robot kind of like an as an exoskeleton sorry cockroach had an extra skeleton of this robot and he would drive around and i took that work into the tom daniel lab at u. dub and i did it with malls Later on but it was this idea the synergy of essentially trans juicing biological signal putting him in some sort of environment that environment the biological system was with essentially effect through end effector that are artificial like my robot it would affect the environment that environment would generate signal back into the senses of the insect. And you kind of close the loop there and the fascinating thing is like you know the system. The block system adapted. It was plastic. It conformed do the parameters gave it and was able to eventually control the car effectively and even obstacle avoid. And i was like. That's so cool. I mean that was that was kinda experiment you know that showed me You know how powerful biology is in. How bad i was at programming. Those are two things that are There for all of them. I think every computer scientists are software. Engineer has that moment in their career where they just realized how much they have left to learn about little craft. So this is funny story. Like i did a podcast with tom. Daniel ed. Tom was telling me this story about you. And like know knew pretty well for three and a half years at that point and i was like wow. I didn't realize stevie done that. Sorta work before Is really i mean. You know the the interesting thing is like you have taken that multidisciplinary approach and just continue to do it over and over again..

"You know but i broke a lot of stuff. And i didn't really get yelled at too much and i like building things. Take things apart you know. My dad helped me get my first computer. The atari one of the really old ones atari one thirty. You know i was in saudi arabia at the time so i didn't get exposed to like the typical computer exposing the us. I got like atari acorn. You know that sort of thing and my dad was there was a very supportive. Both my parents. It wasn't until really high school where i started getting like my teachers being great mentors and then in college when i have you know people that really changed my life forever. Where did you guys move to in virginia. Like where'd you get a high school northern virginia broader on high school. Ashburn over here about forty minutes from dc very ruled sort of place. It's built up now. This is where all the data centers are by the way you know like the drive around. There's like data centres left and right all all over there with like the case before this is where. Aol was here. that's where they started. Know crazy stuff and so when you went to college. Did you know you wanted to major in engineering. Y'all yeah i mean. I think like in high school. I was really inspired by the robotics happening. Mit professor there named rodney. Brooks and i would just read their papers and you know like china. Richard them this technique that they had developed consumption architecture and it was inspired by ants or like insects and how to basically develop a control system for a robot and so i wanted to build something like that myself and i did that and i knew like computers and engineering was kinda. My path and virginia. Tech was a really good option. Here for me. Yeah virginia tech is a great school. I also i. I grew up in virginia. Uva i heard your but like we don't need to have any virginia tech not necessary. I mean even though we're totally fine. Yeah yeah my. It's sort of funny my my two best friends Who had been my best friends. Since i was a little kid. Both of them went to virginia tech. Like one One got electrical engineering degree there and the other got a chemistry degree there and like i was It was computer science elsewhere But it yet texaco great school. My mentor was professor. Mraz in the chemistry department. So interesting. And i got my w so interesting sort of parallels there. Yeah they they had a fantastic and probably still do have a fantastic chemistry department Just really really interesting characters. There were so one of the things that is super interesting about you. And you already alluded to it. Is you really have this curiosity and in these boundaries between disciplines. So you know this assumption robotic stuff. That's you know inspire by ads. that you just mentioned is i think an example in you've gone on to like build a bunch of Like robotic systems While you were in in college that were at this intersection sick. You talk a little bit more about that. Yeah so i i did. Three internships on microsoft's in one of the kind of inbetween rotations. I got really interested in trying to do by medics of amp behavior and colonies of really excited by the fact that you know why you might have a robot that had simple rules..

They've actually moved in a month earlier and that does is actually move it into their second quarter financial is instead of when it's typical and they're on their third core financials There's been some speculation that they did that because this next upcoming quarter for them their second quarter is the first quarter. They're going to really be able to compare their financial figures to last year when the pandemic restarted affecting that and last you their sales figures during those three mines were huge because a lot of people were were buying products online and they were seeing a lot of demand that that kind of obviously continued throughout the pandemic. You can hear more from sebastian on our sister podcast attack news briefing. Big tech stocks are going their own ways and twenty twenty one. It's a shift from last year when the so called. Thank stocks took a commanding role in a market driven by the pandemic. Let's take a look at the current landscape with markets editor quinton webb who joins us from hong kong. Hi there clinton. So quinn as we have seen the thing stocks facebook apple amazon netflixing and google parent alphabet recovered more quickly than the broader market. After we saw that downturn in early twenty twenty They certainly helped to power s and p five hundred a year later. Are they just as influential. Well it's still very influential yes. They're very large cap stocks. Some of the most valuable stocks in the us market but what's notable that. The wall street journal highlights. Today's that this year they've actually traded in different directions. So you look for example alphabet which is the standard and is up. Something like said he seven percent this year. then you look at the lagarde. Which is netflix. extend seven percent. And you might say that. Actually this is kind of reflecting the dynamics of a reopening economy if you like both alphabet and facebook rely heavily on advertising and companies spend more advertising broadly speaking as the economy reopens net flicks on the other hand. You might think of as a bit more of a kind of stay at home trade and so actually one of the reasons its stock is down somewhat. This year is that it's reported slowing subscriber growth. And it's probably hard to keep growing subscribes at very rapid clip. When people have more things to do with their lives except sitting at home all right so here we are one year later. In addition to the tech stocks are there other areas other sectors. That are now catching the eyes of investors these days. Well i would say that's been an interesting trend of the last few months. Yes is kind of shift towards more traditional sectors than stocks that are kind of more geared towards economic recovery. Now one complication is right. At this moment we're seeing a little bit of a wobble as investors try and think about what the implications of perhaps a quicker move to stem. rising inflation from the federal reserve would main for this so-called reflation trade. But yes broadly. Speaking in the last few months investors have kind of broadened their appetite for other kinds of stocks and have dead look a lot further than just the kind of tech titans which seems to be able to prosper.

"One more thing. It was code-named Prague I read somewhere and Steve Luko who's a technical fellow at Microsoft says he's been working on it since twenty sixteen. I believe so I guess this has been in the works. And supposedly none of us knew bed until today. I can't wait till they come with the the modern version of settling ActiveX. I get chills. But it was a different time. It was a different time. And and I don't mean to say this is like a lake, you know, five dot O or something. But I don't. So by the way, the ActiveX was insecure because they stripped away too, much, right? I don't know that the component object model of dicamba whatever's inherently insecure like the idea there was it was object oriented, right? So I think we're, you know, that's not the way they're going to develop this per se, but there's a very clean sense of private and public data and private and public interfaces. You know in you can as the component creator crate, whatever interfaces you want. So that these things can interrupt rate publicly. You know, who I don't know. I have no idea how this thing is architecture. I'm sure it's completely different. But we just been conceptually not. Always thought it was actually it was a good idea that the model is good idea. But you know, the mistake they made with active extras allowing arbitrary code to run on your computer. So but remember remember nineteen Ninety-six or so, right. And so you have this really rich interface for sharing information between applications on a windows PC it needs to run in the web, which was mostly dialogues. The problem, right? What do we have to strip away? Right. The security stuff, right? We're.

Yeah. But everyone should continue listening. Yeah. Really gets better. I swear.

Depends on your perspective. Really does goodness. Talking about Michael Kohn, I presume me. No. Yes. The other Michael. Okay. Well, I appreciate that. This is not a podcast about politics.

"And it's honestly not all that bad news because the market in general is declining and apple isn't declining as fast as Yami. So you know, there's there's a tiny bit of good news in there for apple. I guess, and you know, like, we said last this just this is just a broader trend of a market, that's matured, and and you know, consumers don't feel that don't feel compelled to upgrade as often as they have maybe in a year. Space. So it's it's, you know, it's it's it's gonna take a shift on on the business side of, you know, how do you develop these processes you just wanted to have a new shiny, bright hardware, or do you want to move slowly into services where you can continually sell into it overtime. So people just kind of sitting on what they have. Yeah. And I know it's tempting and it's not wholly unjustified to look at. Whether China's economy is a whole slowing down as the cause or or maybe the trade conflict with the United States is the causing those do contribute to this. I personally think that the more important thing here is that even without a slowing economy and trade conflicts, China would be saturated the smartphone markets in Europe and the United States have slowed down to so really if you're a smartphone maker, you've got to be looking at India sub Saharan Africa, and and maybe a few other places to figure out where you want to grow. If you want to continue to grow. Apple announced that health records on iphone will soon allow I'm sorry. I got ahead of myself. Let's talk Microsoft first, Microsoft police day, forty two second video teaser for its precedent mobile world, congress February twenty fourth it shows a lot of morpheus blobs and fibers some of which could be wires or processors. But who knows what it really does is look like something you might see in VR or maybe a are. And it has everyone assuming it'll have to do with hololens too. But you can't tell anything from this video more indicative is the previously known fact that we've mentioned this on the show before that among the speakers at the event is Microsoft technical fellow Alex kitman who is involved in hollow lens. So this video doesn't make me think that that won't happen. But I don't know Roger. Could you tell anything from this, you know, growing cords and ice cubes the turn into things that might look like processors, it could pave the way for some sort of part of it is I'm looking at where they're going to introduce it, which is mobile world congress. So there has to be some mobile smartphone. One would think I mean, I Guess guess it it doesn't doesn't have. have more sense. If it was. But it makes sense that if it was some sort of, you know, it could be it could be a hollow lens that you know, that you slap. You know that connects your smartphone or Ireland hollow land or a hollow leads that is a smartphone. An awesome would that be or like the activists go, right? It's just a self contained unit. And the melting could be like, hey, we're melting away your your previous inhibitions or connections wires in this thing for like for something that should be mobile. They're showing a lot of wires in this video. I know that's partially get way too close. But. I think the upshot is this video doesn't tell you know. It's it's basically telling you that Microsoft has a press announcement they're going to do but will congress probably tune in. We ought know that so really doesn't add anything the governor sation, but I would be I would be very excited to see hollow lens to become something different than hollow lens and become not just a developer kit. But something that everybody could get their hands on. So very curious to see apple announced. Here we go that health records on iphone will soon. Let veterans receive care through the US veterans health administration to view medical records in the app. So if you're a veteran, and you're getting your care through the VHA, you'll be able to use an apple app to seal your medical records,.
