Rory gives us the inside scoop on the Microsoft Research TechFest

Microsoft Research TechFest – Intro, DynaVis, and FastDash

… In this, the first video in what will be a series covering this event, we get a nice introduction to TechFest, some info about Microsoft Research (MSR), and two projects: DynaVis and FastDash.

When you watch this video, hopefully you get an idea of why I’m so excited right now. Once I have the whole series online, you’ll be able to see the amazing work being done in MSR – and this only represents a few projects. There are many others. …

Every year at Microsoft there is a little internal-only conference where Microsoft Research (MSR) shows off their projects. It is very cool but very private (badges checked at the door, etc…). Well, this year it is a bit different… For MSR TechFest 2007 they’ve allowed folks to come in and interview the researchers, take pictures/video, whatever… crazy stuff and you get to see the results first on Channel 9.  Rory tours us around, gives us an intro to the whole event and even covers a couple of projects… and this is just the first of the series!

  1. Sorry to hear you got an error Erling… we aren’t seeing a consistent problem on C9, but we’ve had a few errors reported lately…
