In 1991, Bill Gates decided to make a bold investment for the long-term future of the company by creating an organization to focus on basic and applied research in computing. Fifteen years later, nearly every product that Microsoft ships contains technology that originated in Microsoft Research and was developed using tools that began in the research division.
Now 750 people strong with five labs on three continents, MSR continues to advance the state of the art in computing technology and move those innovations into the products that our customers enjoy today and into the future. Hear about Microsoft’s unique approach to research and innovation, and see a sneak preview of technologies that might appear in Microsoft products in the years to come.
Speaker: Kevin Schofield, General Manager, Microsoft Research - Redmond
