HP Labs' worldwide headquarters in Palo Alto is perched on a hillside
just a few miles from the famous HP garage that is known as the
birthplace of Silicon Valley.
The spirit of invention that Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard brought
to their garage workshop prevails at the Palo Alto lab, where researchers
are pursuing advances in such fields as utility computing, business-process innovation, digital imaging, customized printing, streaming media and experimental economics.
At the same time, our scientists are exploring more radical technologies,
including nanotechnology and computational bioscience.
The lab, HP's largest, is less than a mile from Stanford
Alto and the surrounding cities are home to a lively and
diverse technical community.
Besides intellectual foment, the region offers sunshine and mild
weather, nearby beaches, fine restaurants, bustling bookstores,
awe-inspiring natural beauty and plenty of opportunities for recreation.
