Augmented Learning and Reasoning

The Augmented Learning and Reasoning group’s mission is to augment AI models, technology, and people with new capabilities to transform what is possible. The group brings together expertise in Microsoft Research across different professional and academic disciplines to work together to accomplish this mission. Our expertise includes artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and information retrieval as well as other areas.

Together with our product partners, our team has developed technology that has improved product offerings in Office, Visual Studio, Cortana and Bing.

We currently have applications open for interns and postdoctoral researchers on our career opportunity page. We are always interested in working with individuals who are ready to think broadly, focus deeply, and work as a team to advance the state-of-the-art and impact the world. We invite you to learn more about us on our respective profile pages.
