Peter Lee, Microsoft ResearchEric Horvitz, Microsoft ResearchThe following is a special contribution to this blog from Eric Horvitz, Distinguished Scientist at Microsoft Research and member of the CCC Council, and Peter Lee, Managing Director of Microsoft Research Redmond.

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Microsoft Research last September, we organized a day of reflection at the Redmond lab where we asked participants to look back and then forward to the next 20 years of computer science, with the goal of providing advice to young scientists.

Today we are making available an overview view of highlights from the day of reflection, and also videos from one-on-one interviews. Check out the overview piece after the jump…

…and see the one-on-one interviews at our newly created Career Reflections website.

Stay tuned, as we’ll be releasing videos of other interviews — including Deborah Estrin, Anna Karlin, Ed Lazowska, Sam Madden, and Greg Morrisett, to name a few — once per month over the anniversary year!

And please help us get the word out — especially to young researchers everywhere!
