Wolfram Schulte, director of engineering for Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise division, will receive the IEEE Computer Society 2016 Harlan D. Mills Award. for contributions that led to major theoretical and practical advances in software verification.
Corporate vice president Jeannette M. Wing reflects on the early achievements of the Expeditions Program, an initiative encouraging researchers to pursue audacious goals, to resource them for the long term, and to reward their long-term commitment.
Microsoft researchers have developed a new platform, AIX, that allows computer scientists to use the world of Minecraft as a testing ground for conducting research designed to improve artificial intelligence.
SandDance helps you visually explore datasets to find stories and extract insights. Available as a Web-based tool and a custom Power BI visual, SandDance shows all the data organized into aggregations, revealing overall patterns as well as outliers.
Jeannette M. Wing reflects on the progress in injecting computational thinking into research and education of all fields in the last 10 years. The concept of computational thinking derives from Wing's optimism on the future of computer science.
Steve Hodges, principal researcher in Microsoft's Cambridge, U.K. research lab, discusses the impact the Micro Bit mini-computer can have on the one million school children who will be coding on the robust devices.
Seeing AI, a research project that can be used as a cell phone app or via smart glasses, uses computer vision and natural language processing to describe a person's surroundings, read text, answer questions and even identify emotions on people's faces.
Holoportation, developed in the Cambridge, U.K. lab, projects a live hologram of a person into another room, where they can interact with whomever's present in real time as though they were actually there.
Researchers from Microsoft and the University of Washington collaborated to develop an end-to-end system to encode, store and retrieve digital data using DNA molecules.
Elad Yom-Tov demonstrates how the Internet's trove of data on how we research our own health can itself be mined for answers medical researchers otherwise have no way of getting.
Visual storytelling, a new research project using machine learning to add narrative to image collections, could potentially be used to provide richer descriptive tools for people who are blind or visually impaired.
The REACH initiative uses cloud-based Azure Machine Learning to monitor sensors in water wells in remote parts of Africa and Asia to help millions of poor people access clean water.
