Microsoft celebrates


Microsoft is preparing to celebrate its fifth anniversary in Cambridge.

April 16 and 17 will see special events at the Cambridge laboratory, with a dinner in King's College on the Tuesday evening when 'Father of Silicon Fen', Hermann Hauser will talk on 'Advancing the state of the art'.

The following day there will be presentations on research into the next generation internet, programming the web, and working with images.

There will also be displays and demonstrations showing off all the latest research projects in the lab.


At Microsoft Research in Cambridge, we truly aspire to transform the world through deep research. The bold and inquisitive minds of our researchers and engineers have produced, and continue to produce, significant contributions to Microsoft’s most successful products and services, as well as to the broader research community. The interdisciplinary nature of our lab ensures that we push the boundaries of computing in an inclusive way, resulting in robust and trusted technologies that can be deployed at scale. We have only scratched the surface of what technology can do for us, and I am tremendously excited to be working in a team that is so committed to having a significant impact upon our society.
