Coming later this spring, the Kinect for Windows SDK is a programming toolkit that will enable researchers and enthusiasts easy access to the capabilities offered by the Microsoft Kinect device connected to computers running Microsoft Windows 7.
Microsoft Tag connects real life with the digital world. Microsoft Tags are small, colorful codes that can be printed, stuck, or displayed just about anywhere. When you snap a Tag with the camera on your internet-enabled phone, additional information or experiences are automatically opened on your phone. There is no fumbling with URLs or texting short codes. Microsoft Tags can make product packages, posters, print-based ads, magazine articles, exhibit signage, billboards, storefronts, business card, or just about anything else, interactive.

- FB15K-237 Knowledge Base Completion Dataset
This dataset contains knowledge base relation triples and textual mentions of Freebase entity pairs, as used in the work published in (Toutanova and Chen CVSM-2015) and (Toutanova et al. EMNLP-2015). The knowledge base triples are a subset of the FB15K set (Bordes et al. NIPS-2013), originally derived from Freebase. The textual mentions are derived from 200 million sentences from the ClueWeb12 corpus coupled with FACC1 Freebase entity mention annotations. More details can be found in the included README.

- Microsoft Research WikiQA Code Package
We are releasing the code of some models used in our EMNLP-2015 paper, “WikiQA: A Challenge Dataset for Open-Domain Question Answering.” The code includes implementation of two models: Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), and Logistic regression with CNN and count features (CNN-Cnt). The models intend to judge whether a given sentence can be used to answer the input question. Please refer to the README.txt file in the download and also the paper for detail.

- DRAW: A Challenging and Diverse Algebra Word Problem Set
DRAW is a collection of algebra word problems that are semi-automatically mined from http://algebra.com. Compared to existing evaluation datasets, DRAW is more diverse in terms of problem types, and poses a challenging evaluation setting for automatic solvers. DRAW's annotation schema also provides annotation for the alignment of the coefficients to numbers appearing in the text, which was absent in earlier datasets. For template-based approaches, we also induce the templates from the data and de-duplicate them, so that each problem is accompanied by its corresponding template. Besides the problems in DRAW, we also release the dataset released by “Learning to Automatically Solve Algebra Word Problems, ACL 2014“ which has been augmented with annotations under our schema. If you use this dataset, please cite the corresponding technical report.
