The operative assimilated Google full-time in 2014, though he’s a large partial of a company’s start story.
Levoy knew Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin when he was a highbrow and they were students during Stanford University in a 90s (he also says he “lent a few hoop drives to PhD students David Filo and Jerry Yang” around a same time, that led to a origination of Yahoo).
Levoy was one of a total behind Google Maps’ Street View too, and he’s also worked on Google Glass and been concerned in a firm’s VR efforts.
What’s more, he’s even believed to be partial of a story of hoe Google got a name.
“Oh yes, and afterwards there is a story about how Google got a name, due to a spelling mistake done by one of my Stanford connoisseur students,” he writes on his website. “To hear a full story, you’ll have to provide me to a potion of wine.”
But it’s Levoy’s photography imagination that stands out as something that Google could sorely miss.
Each new Pixel flagship has consistently ranked rarely (or topped) a constantly elaborating roundup of a best camera phones, and we could shortly find out only how executive Levoy was to a smartphone range’s photography prowess. Perhaps not so most with a Pixel 4a, though positively a Pixel 5.
