Beyond voice recognition: Windows PhoneCortana, the world’s first truly personal digital assistant, is available soon on Windows Phone 8.1. Powered by Bing, Cortana is driven by state-of-the-art algorithms using natural language, machine learning, and contextual signals that benefit from advances incubated at Microsoft Research. This approach uses the massive clickstream-feedback loop of web search, along with additional semantics and data. This approach enables Cortana to grow in breadth of domains that cover the web: from the more common...

Building an historical view of climate change in the cloud with ChronoZoomEarth’s climate has changed since the planet’s beginning. While earlier climate-change events were related to natural forces, recent warming is distinctly related to human activities. Jeff Dozier, professor of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California, Santa Barbara, explores the history of climate change in depth each year in his graduate-level Earth System Science class. To help students visualize events through the ages, he is developing a comprehensive history of climate...

VideoKhetiDesigning ICT systems for rural users in the developing world can be very hard. Just a few of the challenges we face are low literacy, limited experience using digital technologies, and the wide variability in spoken languages. To overcome some of these issues, we created VideoKheti, a mobile system that uses speech, graphics, and touch interaction to help low-literate farmers in rural India find and watch agricultural extension videos in their own language and...

Fire App Fights Wildfires with DataEvery second counts when combating a wildfire. Time lost can result in devastating loss of life or property. The University of the Aegean in Greece developed the VENUS-C Fire app, featuring Bing Maps, Microsoft Silverlight, and Windows Azure to determine the daily wildfire risk and fire propagation in the vulnerable island of Lesvos during its dry season. The university team generates a visualization of environmental factors each morning for the island’s fire management team, who then use the app to...

FaST-LMM and Windows Azure Put Genetics Research on Faster TrackAlthough researchers are able to collect, store, and analyze tremendous volumes of data, technological and storage limitations can severely impact the speed at which these data can be analyzed. A new algorithm developed by Microsoft Research, FaST-LMM, runs on Windows Azure in the cloud and expedites analysis time—reducing processing periods from years to just days or hours. An early application of FaST-LMM and Windows Azure helps researchers analyze data for the genetic causes of common diseases.
