Portrait of Dan Morris

Dan Morris

Principal Scientist and Aspiring Rock Icon


I’m a Principal Scientist in the AI for Earth program.

My interests include:

Sustainability and conservation (e.g. our Species Classification API)
Sensors and machine learning for health and fitness
Computer support for music and creativity
Sensors and machine learning for input systems
Making medical records more intuitive to patients

Before coming to Microsoft, my research focused on:

Haptics and physical simulation for medical applications
Neural prosthetics and brain-computer interfaces

I was part of the team that made Songsmith, which lets musical novices get a taste of songwriting, just by singing, and provides songwriters with an “intelligent scratchpad”. It’s totally sweet. Try it.

My personal page lives here.  I also blog about nerdy chord theory stuff here.

For MSFT folks: I maintain a page of interesting objects and places on campus.
