In today’s high-productivity computing environments that process dizzying amounts of data each millisecond, a research project named for “a trillion events per day” may seem relatively ordinary.
But when you understand that Trill, a new high-performance streaming analytics engine developed by Microsoft researchers, can process data at two to four orders of magnitude faster than today’s streaming engines, well, now you’re getting into “wow” territory, especially considering Trill is just a .NET library.

Editor's Note: Eric Horvitz, managing director of Microsoft Research’s Redmond Lab, today shares some reflections upon receiving the AAAI Feigenbaum Prize. Horvitz is being recognized by the AAAI for “sustained and high-impact contributions to the field of artificial intelligence through the development of computational models of perception, reflection and action, and their application in time-critical decision making, and intelligent information, traffic, and healthcare systems.”
How do our minds work? How can our thinking, perceiving, and all of our experiences arise in networks of neurons? I have wondered about answers to these questions for as long as I can remember. Until just a few decades ago, discussions on mind and brain generally occurred within philosophy and theology. Over the last century, research in psychology, biology, and computer science has brought into focus intriguing results and directions for approaching a science of intelligence.
