TechFest 2008: Turning Ideas Into Reality


I told you, I would write about the things I am working on for the past months. And last week TechFest 2008 took place in Redmond/WA at Microsoft. Almost the whole team I am working with was there – I haven’t spoken to anybody yet personally but it seems to have gone well:

Rick Rashid, Microsoft Research senior vice president shows a prototype device with a Web-service interface developed by Microsoft researchers that runs an energy-management application that saves energy by actively monitoring the weather and energy variations. This is one of 40 exciting emerging technologies on display at Microsoft TechFest 2008 which brings researchers, customers, academics, dignitaries and employees. Redmond, Wash., March 4, 2008.

“Microsoft Research’s TechFest is an annual event that brings researchers from Microsoft’s labs around the world to Redmond to share their latest work with the product teams. Attendees will experience some of the freshest, most innovative technologies emerging from Microsoft’s research efforts. The event provides a forum in which product teams and researchers can discuss the incredible work occurring in the labs, thereby encouraging effective technology transfer into Microsoft products.”
