MS PDC: MS Rersearch steels the show
The keynote this morning was done by Rick Rashid, who runs MS Research. What a show! There were several really cool bits of research that were demonstrated. A cool demo was based on Sload Digital Sky Survey - Sky Server This is the old terraserver, but based on the sky, not the earth. But perhaps the coolest was the Tablet 'math pad'. The idea is that you can type in Math equations, and have them auto-graphed.
While a lot of the things shown this morning are far off, some of them look very promising.
