“At Microsoft Research Asia, our researchers and engineers push the boundaries of innovation by reaching into their imaginations and turning their ideas into reality.
As we have grown, our commitment to fostering talent and building healthy IT ecosystems in the region has expanded. Over the years, we have extended the scope of our university relations efforts by establishing joint labs with universities in Asia, conducting joint research programs, hosting top-notch visiting professors at our lab, and offering and funding computer science courses throughout China. These collaborations have allowed us to create exciting new opportunities for both Microsoft and academia in the Asia Pacific region.
I am highly appreciative of our researchers, engineers and partners for their continued support. Our collective hard work has built the lab into what it is today. We will continue to tackle computing’s greatest challenges with the passion that has helped establish Microsoft Research Asia as one of the world’s foremost fundamental and applied research facilities.”
