From the director

Hussein Salama“The key to ATL Cairo’s success is our focus on incubations. Our incubations aim to reduce the risks associated with technologies emerging from research to levels that are acceptable to the product groups and to start envisioning real life scenarios around these technologies. We make this possible by maintaining long-term working relationships with the product groups and ongoing collaborations with other Microsoft Research Labs. Finally, we complement our internal focus with external collaborations and internship programs in order to maximize the value ATL Cairo bring to Microsoft and to promote advanced research in the Middle East.”
