The Purpose of Microsoft Research

May 23, 2008

Stefanie Olson has a remarkable story ‘Microsoft Exec: Survival Is All about Research’. You can read the story here. For me, the most significant part of this story which was cited by Techmeme here is this quote, ‘Ultimately, the goal of Microsoft Research is to make sure Microsoft is still here in 10 years.’

My thought is that Microsoft needs to leap frog Google. I’m not sure the research agenda described in Ms. Olsen’s article will do the trick.
