Microsoft Research New England Facility Opens

Microsoft Research Cambridge facility officially opens.

We first covered Microsoft Research's plans to open a state-of-the-art research facility back in February.

Microsoft officially announced the opening of the new facility in Cambridge, Massachusetts today.

An inaugural symposium was held as well, hosted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

"Microsoft Research New England was founded this past July by Managing Director Jennifer Chayes, Ph.D., and Deputy Managing Director Christian Borgs, Ph.D., with a charter to build on Microsoft Corp.’s commitment to advancing the state of the art in computing".
