Career Reflections Collection
On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Microsoft Research, we invited innovators in computer science and related fields to join us for a day to look back and then forward to the next 20 years of computer science. These reflections on advice to young scientists are provided as a gift to the computer science community. We plan to release one set of thoughts per month over the anniversary year. We hope you'll subscribe to the series and check in again soon.Subscribe
HIGHLIGHTS FROM A DAY OF REFLECTION
This overview video captures highlights from a day of brainstorming and discussions at Microsoft Research. Six groups (teams Babbage, Boole, Gödel, Turing, Shannon, and Simon), composed of Microsoft Research computer scientists and their colleagues from other research organizations, reflected separately about the past 20 years and the future to come, in the context of providing advice to young scientists. Afterwards, participants came together to listen to briefings about the discussions from the chairs of each team. Beyond the overview video below, we invite you to listen in to videos of the briefings from each group.
