"People underestimate the human mind"
What are the various milestones that HP Labs has achieved over the last few decades?
Looking at HP Labs as an innovation machine, it has been fundamental in terms of bringing about change in the company. This would range from printing technology-Inkjet and laser-printing technology came from the Labs; PA-RISC architecture came from the Labs and more recently our move into commercial printing. The next generation data centers is something that HP Labs worked on nine years ago-this was well before people talked about it.
Another area is the Itanium-enterprise scale processor project along with Intel. We did a lot of the early work in web services software by contributing our technology for open standards. That was not a product but an important development. Not done but still important is nanotechnology. That is starting to pay off. But it will take a few years more before to see its results. That is going along quite strongly now.
