He is currently the CEO and founder of Archetype AI, a deep tech AI startup that seeks to build a foundational model capable of understanding, reasoning, and discovering invisible insights in the real world in real time, an initiative he calls 'Physical AI.'
He is a former technology executive at Google and previously worked as a research scientist at Disney Imagineering and Sony. An inventor with more than 100 issued patents and over 100 publications, he is also a TED speaker and has received numerous awards, including the Smithsonian’s National Design Award.

"One aspect of the project focuses on creating smart garments that can change their appearance based on people's behavior. These garments serve as a medium to connect individuals' behavior with the expressions manifested on their garment.”

"Physical AI understands the physical world and generates all interactions. It will be somewhat like a conclusive, ultimate user interface, among other things, possibly replacing all other interfaces in the future. That's why we refer to it as ‘Physical AI’.
We're developing this model because there is a distinction between using the online world and the physical world, primarily because in the physical world, there are two crucial components that do not exist in the online world. One of them is time.”
