About Microsoft Research

At Microsoft Research, our mission is to accelerate scientific discovery and technology innovation to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more. We do this by bringing together the best minds across diverse disciplines and backgrounds to take on the most pressing research challenges for Microsoft and for society.

Science and technology have never been more deeply interconnected. Advancements in computing technologies enable new scientific discoveries which, in turn, fuel progress and catalyze new innovations. We aim to ensure that this cycle of advancement benefits everyone by envisioning and realizing the promise of technology across the breadth and depth of the human experience.

As a global research community within one of the world’s largest technology companies, we have the opportunity to learn from the experience of billions of users in hundreds of countries across every industry. From this unique perspective, we’re able to view society itself as a customer, positioning our research to unlock new empowered experiences and advance digital transformation at planetary scale.

Our research embodies Microsoft’s commitment to long-term thinking, intellectual rigor, and sustained investment in advancing fundamental knowledge. We are empowered to explore and experiment beyond the typical product cycle, or to roll up our sleeves and solve problems on behalf of our customers.
