From the director
"ATL Europe is not just an applied research lab. We see ourselves as a little startup within Microsoft, whose goal is to have a deep and sustained impact on Microsoft product groups. How do we achieve that result? We incubate cutting edge research while applying the very best software engineering practices. What gets our pulse racing? Tackling big challenges and seeing them transformed into impactful product features.
ATL Europe focuses on collecting, managing, analyzing and finally acting on data exchanged between devices and cloud services. Our expertise, which ranges from system level device security to machine learning aided advanced analytics of in-flight data, lends itself particularly well to this charter.
Being located in Europe is another big benefit for us. Given the rich industrial environment which surrounds us, including manufacturing, automotive & energy, we are uniquely positioned to ground our incubations in real life scenarios. Finally, we are also able to leverage local research, both from Microsoft Research and from local research institutions."
