Fostering the Next Generation of Computer Scientists


July 17, 2012


Harold Javid


Computing increasingly enables the introduction of new products and new ways to work together, resulting in a growing requirement for skills, knowledge, and research capabilities that are the domain of post-doctoral computer scientists. Universities are the primary catalysts for encouraging and developing a new generation of computer scientists; companies also have a role to play.

In this short presentation during the 2012 Faculty Summit, Harold Javid of Microsoft Research examines some Microsoft programs and discusses features that can help graduate students and early-career academics advance their research capabilities and careers.
