Microsoft has announced today the creation of a new HoloLens computer vision research team in Cambridge, UK. The new team will be led by Jamie Shotton, a former Microsoft Research Head of Machine Intelligence & Perception Group who joined the company back in 2008. This new HoloLens research team will be a part of the bigger HoloLens Science team led by Marc Pollefeys, Director of Science at Microsoft HoloLens at Seattle, WA.
In the blog post announcing the news, Microsoft explained that it’s looking to hire more talent for this new Cambridge-based team. “Poised to expand substantially over the coming months, we’re looking for people who love to build amazing new technology and have the strong blend of research, engineering, and mathematics they’ll need to thrive with us,” explained the company.
Additionally, Microsoft will also attend the 14th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) in Amsterdam from October 8-16, which it also sponsored.
