Microsoft Research Cambridge was set up in July 1997 with three researchers. Today over 100 researchers, mostly from Europe, are engaged in computer science research at the lab. The city of Cambridge, England, was the clear choice for the location of the facility because of its world-renowned reputation and its rich history as a center of learning.
|CHI 2013: an Immersive Event
CHI 2013 is all about pushing the boundaries of human-computer interaction (HCI). During this year’s event, 27 papers from Microsoft Research present innovations that re-imagine the computing experience from multiple HCI disciplines.
|Focus in France on Machine Learning
Christopher Bishop, distinguished scientist at Microsoft Research Cambridge, discusses machine learning shortly before the opening of the Machine Learning Summit 2013, to be held April 22-24 just outside of Paris.
|TechFest ’13: Technology Gets Smarter
TechFest 2013 demonstrates how Microsoft Research scientists are finding new approaches to help people sift through big data and designing novel, more natural ways to interact with computing devices.
From the Laboratory Director
“Microsoft Research Cambridge is an impressive laboratory conducting leading-edge research that is driven by tough challenges, and by our peoples’ scientific interests. We have made, and continue to make, substantial contributions to the company. Several recent examples include: the functional programming language F#; the body part recognition technology in Kinect for Xbox 360; and the advert prediction algorithm used in Bing. Through the talent of our researchers, and our many collaborative partnerships, we aim to push back the boundaries of computer science, and to enable the creation of software technologies that will help shape the future of society.”
— Professor Andrew Blake, Laboratory Director, Microsoft Research Cambridge
