Microsoft Research Lab – Redmond

Microsoft Research Lab – Redmond

Established 1991


Microsoft Research was founded on the Redmond, Washington campus of Microsoft Corporation in 1991 to support both basic and applied research free of constraints of product cycles. The Redmond lab has the greatest concentration of researchers, working across the broadest range of research areas in the company. Researchers in the Redmond lab focus on many different areas of research, including human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, search technologies, natural user interfaces (NUI), networking, health and well-being, social science, and economics and computation. Close proximity to the product teams at Microsoft proved valuable in the early days, and that remains true today.
