Microsoft Research offered a glimpse at the future of technology this week, showcasing some of its latest innovations at its biennial D.C. TechFair at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center in downtown Washington, D.C.

“At Microsoft, investing in research and development are top priorities as we continue to spark American innovation while creating the jobs and technologies of the future,” said Fred Humphries, Microsoft vice president of U.S. Government Affairs, in a blog post on Inside Microsoft Research.

One project on display, ViralSearch, offers new insight into how and why content “goes viral” on social networks, drawing on extensive analysis from Microsoft Research New York City.
