Fostering collaboration: the Swiss Joint Research Center

Duration  00:04:56

Date recorded  30 May 2014

Through our Joint Research Center program, Microsoft Research works closely with major research institutions to invest in the future of computer science. One of our newest additions to this program is the Swiss Joint Research Center, a collaborative venture among Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zürich , École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), and Microsoft Research. The Swiss Joint Research Center, which builds on earlier collaboration among the three partners, is dedicated to exploring a diversity of computer sciences challenges, including human-computer interaction, machine vision, performance and energy scalability, mobile computing, and data-center optimization.

This video highlights two of the center’s initial projects: one designed to make data centers more energy efficient, and the other focused on enhancing human-computer interactions through the development of flying robots. They demonstrate the advances that are possible when dedicated researchers collaborate openly.
