Yeshwant Muthusamy

Senior Director, Standards, Immersion Corp.

Yeshwant Muthusamy is a technologist by trade and geek by nature. He has spent the last 26+ years in the fields of speech recognition, natural language processing, and automatic language identification, among other areas of AI, with IoT and AR/VR being more recent areas of interest. Close to 20 years of that has been spent in various international SDOs (like MPEG, ATSC, Khronos, 3GPP, ITU-T, JCP, ETSI) on media and speech standardization efforts. The transition from speech and audio to haptics has been a relatively seamless and natural one (just another one of the human senses), although at times it feels like he is drinking from multiple firehoses as he gets up to speed on the intricacies of the haptic technology stack. Yeshwant is excited to be leading Immersion’s standardization and ecosystem strategy and he looks forward to working with the haptics community.
