Robert Scoble, currently with FastCompany TV, recently interviewed Microsoft’s own Rick Rashid, head of Microsoft's Research labs. The video is available here. Rashid, a huge Star Trek fan equates some of the work coming out of the R&D labs as almost like building a “Star Trek” future. The video references some of the advancements that Microsoft R&D is works on like computer vision, text to speech, natural language processing, and machine translation, as well as some of the amazing technologies that have launched out of R&D like the WorldWide Telescope, InkSeine, and Surface.
