Microsoft Research TechFest 2009: a Glance at the Road Ahead

“From Microsoft Surface to next-generation social networking, here’s a quick rundown of about 35 Microsoft Research projects from around the world that were showcased this past week at TechFest 2009 in Redmond. Microsoft Research’s TechFest, not to be confused with the yearly TechFest event that occurs in India, is an annual showcase of the various technologies that the company’s researchers have been working on. The 2009 event that took place last week (February 24-26) featured a few prototypes that we’ve already seen before, like WorldWide Telescope and Microsoft Songsmith, but there were also many that have only started to emerge out of Microsoft’s research labs around the world, including those in China, India, the UK, and the US.”
