- Azure for Research Training – Cornell 2016
This Azure for Research hands-on lab is offered to Cornell University faculty and students who are using large data sets and have at least basic software development skills. This lab will help participants acquire an understanding of cloud computing with Microsoft Azure at scale, including an overview of services that enable powerful predictive analytics and management of IoT sensors and devices. The one-day training will be delivered through a scenario-based program.
Ithaca, NY, United States· 25 February 2016
- Student Summit on Mobility, Systems, and Networking
The two-day summit will provide an opportunity for students from top US universities to give short talks and present posters on their current research, and to receive feedback from seasoned Microsoft engineers and researchers. In addition, some of Microsoft’s top engineers will describe cutting-edge technologies they are in the process of developing. In the concluding summit, a panel of senior computer science professionals will discuss how to make a graduate degree work for students.
Petaluma, CA, United States· 12 February 2016
- Microsoft Azure for Research Training – MIT 2016
This training is offered to select research community audiences, predominantly consisting of practising research scientists with at least basic software development skills. This one-day course helps attendees acquire a general understanding of cloud computing with Microsoft Azure at scale.
Cambridge, MA, United States· 27 January 2016
- Azure for Research - Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia Institute of Technology Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Room 1116E NOTE: This event is by Invitation only
Georgia Institute of Technology· 22 January 2016
- Azure for Research Training – UW 2015
This Azure for Research hands-on lab is offered to University of Washington faculty and students on the University of Washington campus. This lab will help participants acquire an understanding of cloud computing with Microsoft Azure at scale, including an overview of services that enable powerful predictive analytics and management of IoT sensors and devices.
Seattle, WA, United States· 2 December 2015
- Project Catapult
This project investigates the use of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to improve performance, reduce power, and provide new capabilities in the datacenter. The bottom line for datacenters is more throughput and lower latencies, translating to lower power and cost, higher quality results, or a combination of both. In this workshop the speakers will present the design of Catapult and possible applications where the power of Catapult can be harnessed to the fullest.
Redmond, WA· 10 July 2015
- Faculty Summit 2015
At the sixteenth annual Microsoft Research Faculty Summit, leading academic researchers and educators will meet with Microsoft researchers and engineers to share ideas and results about some of today’s most exciting new directions in computer science. The key focus of this year’s summit is artificial intelligence (AI) with sessions on questioning and answering, vision to language, commonsense reasoning, and integrative AI.
Redmond, WA, United States· 89 July 2015
- PhD Summer School 2015
This annual event is for PhD students in their first or second year from universities and research institutions with which Microsoft Research partners, as well as all Microsoft Research PhD Scholars. It includes a series of talks of academic interest, transferable skills talks, and poster sessions that provide invited students the opportunity to present their work to Microsoft researchers.
