I came across this job ad today along with the announcement of the Apple HomePod speaker. How do the worlds of high-end audio and the high-tech use of audio co-exist?

Oculus Research Redmond is looking for exceptional interns to help us make audio in augmented reality and virtual reality realistic. Expertise in audio, acoustics, signal processing, CPU-GPU parallelization, machine learning, psychoacoustics, and computer science are especially appreciated, but smart, motivated people with strong coding or hardware backgrounds are more than welcome. Strong math skills are a huge plus. We want to build a broad virtual reality research community, so we encourage publishing. Come join us as we make AR and VR happen!
We are accepting applications from students interested in (but not limited to) the following areas:
