To drive and support the strategic initiatives of over 800 researchers in MSR worldwide through partnerships and communities, Microsoft Research Connections holds a yearly Think Tank meeting with academics from universities worldwide. The Winter 2011 Think Tank focused on semantic computing.
Some of the questions that the Think Tank addressed concerns how to:
· Communicate the availability and capability of continuously emerging technologies to the research community
· Partner with the researcher community to further help build semantic services to drive open innovation based on accessibility to data and knowledge
