On Monday, December 19, HP Labs held a special event at the company’s headquarters honoring innovation as well as former Labs Directors Richard Lampman (1999-2007), Joel Birnbaum (1984-86 and 1991-99), Don Hammond (1986-87), Frank Carrubba (1987-1991) and John Doyle (1981-84). 

In honor of the 45th anniversary, Prith Banerjee, SVP of research and director of HP Labs noted, “It’s clear that innovation once again really matters at this company and under the leadership of CEO Meg Whitman, HP is stressing its intention to bring the very best in novel technologies to the global marketplace.”


That leaves HP Labs with a clear charge, Banerjee believes. “Our mission is to create absolutely disruptive innovation beyond the current road map of products,” he explained in a recent interview with MIT’s Technology Review.
