Four Microsofties make Technology Review’s list of 35 under 35

MIT’s Technology Review, the world’s oldest tech magazine, has named four Microsoft employees to its “annual list of 35 outstanding men and women under the age of 35 who exemplify the spirit of innovation in business and technology.” Only Harvard and its affiliates had more people on the TR35.

Those cited from Microsoft are:

Blaise Aguera y Arcas, a researcher in Live Labs whose technology for smoothly loading very large images has been incorporated into products such as Photosynth. Aguera y Arcas’ Ballard startup Seadragon was acquired by Microsoft in 2005. Check out this profile from 2006.

Johnny Lee, a researcher in the company’s applied sciences group focused on human-computer interaction. He has done some interesting hacks of Nintendo’s Wii Remote, using its technology to track objects or your head. Here’s a brief profile Wired did earlier this summer.

Meredith Morris, a researcher in the adaptive systems and interaction group who has developed techniques for collaborative Internet search.

Xian-Sheng Hua, lead researcher in the Internet Media Group of Microsoft Research Asia. His work includes improvements in online video search and categorization.
