On Tuesday, Microsoft and Intel, along with researchers from two as-yet unnamed universities, are planning to announce "significant new research ventures," according to a news release Microsoft sent out this afternoon.
The executives making the announcement are Tony Hey, corporate vice president in charge of external research at Microsoft Research, and Andrew Chien, an Intel vice president in charge of the Corporate Technology Group and director of Intel Research.
I wonder if their announcement will look anything like the ongoing research into Internet-scale applications backed by Google and IBM, which got its start at the University of Washington.
