Ran Gal is a researcher at Microsoft Research (MSR), in the eXtreme Computing Group (XCG). His current research focus is on augmented reality and other computer graphics/vision problems. He received his PhD from the Tel Aviv University in Israel, and joined Microsoft in 2010. Prior to joining XCG, he worked as a researcher at Bing Mobile and mapping, developing a system that allows a user to add in-doors mapping information to Bing Maps. By geo-register sketches/floor-plans or any other non-exact visual media to a global map, the user was able to semi-automatically trace and annotate additional information to map, such as interior structure information, public facilities information and more.
