My name is Manfred Zabarauskas. I currently lead Search and Explore product groups at Instagram in New York.
I am passionate about democratizing the next-gen computing: from artificial intelligence, robotics and AR/VR, to cloud, blockchain and biotech.
I first got fascinated by human-computer interaction during my undergrad studies at the University of Cambridge, where I have built immersive 3D displays. I continued pursuing these interests at the University of Oxford where I have built and deployed autonomous photographer robots.
Since 2012 I have been leading multi-billion user and multi-billion dollar products at Google, Facebook, Instagram, Microsoft and other companies.
I have co-founded the Google Cardboard virtual reality team in 2013. Over time it grew into Google Daydream virtual reality platform, where I led the teams building user interfaces for a pioneering VR operating system.
Afterwards I led multiple teams at Google Search through over a hundred launches to make people more curious, interested and educated when using search.
Previously I built a widely popular
gcloud command-line interface for public cloud computing at Google Cloud, and extended Microsoft Office to be a world-leading technical content management platform.
I regularly consult startups and large companies on tech strategy, especially on AI, search and new computing platforms.

I have built a number of software and hardware products over the last sixteen years. The examples below include commercial projects, academic undertakings, spare-time hobbies and so on. These projects range from single day hacks to multiple year efforts.
Over the last decade, I've had the privilege to study and work with a number of amazing people. Here's the summary of my education and professional experience, but if you prefer, you can get my detailed résumé on LinkedIn. It might even be more up-to-date.
