eScience in the Cloud
Avg Rating: 0Scientific applications have diverse data and computational needs that scale from desktop to supercomputers. Besides the nature of the application and the domain, the resource needs for the applications also vary over time—as the collaboration and the data collections expand, or when seasonal campaigns...
Bing Technology Transfer
Avg Rating: 0Microsoft Research has contributed numerous technologies to the Bing search engine. Years of research efforts on intensive, data-driven problems have resulted in cutting-edge technology transfers. And Microsoft Research’s ongoing collaborations with Bing product teams continue to evolve...
Avg Rating: 5(1)In this demo we showcase efforts in MSR to collaborate with external researchers to explore the application of new technologies, specifically Dryad and DryadLINQ, to big data research problems in science. We also highlight our efforts to provide software and services to academics across the world,...
Tracking Internet Hosts Using Unreliable IDs
Avg Rating: 5(1)Today's Internet is open and anonymous. While it permits free traffic from any host, attackers that generate malicious traffic typically cannot be held accountable. We will present a system that tracks dynamic bindings between hosts and IP addresses by leveraging application-level data with unreliable...
Mobile Assistance Using Infrastructure (MAUI)
Avg Rating: 5(1)Mobile devices have reached an impasse. Although the resources that can be integrated onto mobile handheld devices will continue to improve, faster CPUs, more RAM, faster wireless NICs, making substantial use of these resources will require a major breakthrough in battery technology. To bypass these...
Mobile-to-Mobile Networking in 3G Networks
Avg Rating: 5(1)Mobile devices increasingly are first-class computing devices, generating large amounts of data. Searching and sharing data securely across multiple devices can be a significant challenge. We have built Contrail, a communication abstraction for P2P communication on mobile phones. Communication in Contrail...
Manual Deskterity : An Exploration of Simultaneous Pen + Touch Direct Input
Avg Rating: 0Our research showcases a conceptual model for bimanual input that spans a wide range of form-factors including smart phones, slates, and tabletop systems using a combination of pen, touch, motion sensing, and voice input modalities. The pen writes, the hands manipulate, and the combination of modalities...
New Technologies for Multi-Image Fusion
Avg Rating: 5(1)As video and still cameras have become almost ubiquitous, people are taking increasingly more photographs and videos of the world around them. Often, the photographer's intent is to capture more than what can be seen in a single photograph, and he or she instead takes a large set of images or a video...
The Translating! Telephone
Avg Rating: 0Douglas Adams' Babelfish inspired dreams of unfettered universal communication. Though we are still far from achieving that goal, there are scenarios in which today's limited accuracy can create value. Our goal in the telephone-call scenario is to provide an aid for cross-language communication in...
Greening Corporate Networks with Sleep Proxy
Avg Rating: 5(2)In a corporate network, most desktop machines always are left on, even when they are not in use for extended periods, such as at night. This is wasteful, bad for the environment, and bad for the corporate treasury. While Win7 provides aggressive sleep functionality, most users override it because they...
