Last Updated on Thursday, 24 September 2009 01:36 Written by Mire_B Thursday, 24 September 2009 01:36

Nothing for the public just yet, but Microsoft is building new forms of immersive communications services that take advantage of hardware so innovative that it is yet to be released on the market.

 

Sr. Software Dev. Engineer(702754 -External)
Engineering: Development
Location: United States, WA, Redmond
Job ID: 702754 7177
Division: Corporate Research & Development

Computer Vision SDE

We’re developing new forms of immersive communications services using hardware that is not released yet. Sorry, that’s all we can say until we see you in person …but it’s way cool. We’re new, we just got the green light to ship the product/service, we have HC and budget. We’re a product team with startup DNA and we’re looking for a senior SDE to help us develop the computer vision components of our product.

Our product is heavily dependent on computer vision algorithms. We will receive many of these algorithms from Microsoft Research teams. We are looking for a developer with experience in computer vision, who can understand the strength and weaknesses of the research components, organize them in a common architecture, and help us develop or acquire missing components if needed. The relevant computer vision experience should be demonstrated through graduate degrees, research publications, patents, and references.

Singularity RDK 2.0 Boot

Last Updated on Friday, 28 August 2009 02:46 Written by Mire_B Friday, 28 August 2009 02:22

Since I was talking about Singularity the other day, I thought you might want a taste. I don’t know how many of you actually downloaded and ran Singularity. But if you didn’t, here’s your chance to see the non-Windows operating system from Microsoft boot.

Make sure to hit the full screen button for a more complete experience. I’ll be honest with you, Singularity won’t blow your mind. For me, the highlight was that I got to run a non-Windows platform. Oh, and it reminded me of “the good old times” when I had to dig around DOS, although the blue background is incomparable friendlier.

What you’ll see in the video is the start-up of Singularity RDK 2.0, and me running a few commands. Nothing fancy!

I know what you’re wondering. Is Singularity RDK 2.0 booting faster than Windows 7? Just watch the video and see for yourselves. But bear in mind that the OS is virtualized.
