Bill Gates’ Speech @ Microsoft Research Asia 10th Anniversary Innovation Forum

Bill Gates visited Hong Kong in the past week and gave a speech and held discussions at the Microsoft Reasearch Asia 10th Anniversary Innovation Forum held at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on 12 August 2008. His keynote speech was on the theme “Innovating for the Next Decade”.  He also joined technologists from Microsoft Research (MSR) Asia, and the three Presidents from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, and the University of Hong Kong, to share their ideas and thoughts on the topic of “Technology & Society” during the panel discussion. The event aimed to celebrate a decade of ground-breaking collaboration between MSR Asia, Microsoft’s premier research lab in Asia Pacific, and Asia’s academic community.

His speech and discussions are now uploaded on MSN Hong Kong and the link is here.  But since the website is in Chinese, I inked up the key buttons (with the arrows) so you can navigate through the keynote speech (starts 15 minutes into the video) and the panel discussions.
