Maarten Bos

Lead Research Scientist
Snap Research

Corporate research labs aim to push the scientific and technological forefront of innovation outside traditional academia. Snap Inc. combines academia and industry by hiring academic researchers and doing application-driven research. In this talk I will give examples of research projects from my corporate research experience. My goal is to showcase the value of – and hurdles for – working both with and within corporate research labs, and how some of these values and hurdles are different from working in traditional academia.
