Mike Furst, manager systems laboratory, Xerox Research Center Webster, leads a presentation on how Xerox innovates for a group of Democrat and Chronicle readers and editors.

Focusing primarily on the Xerox Research Center in Webster, lead reporter Ben Loudon talked with a number of our top scientists and researchers working in cutting-edge research in areas like computer vision, video medical technology, and Big Data analytics.

The article and video highlights how we innovate with our customers via customer dreaming sessions and collaborative research projects that connect researchers, engineers and scientists from across the globe.  A team of reporters, editors and a videographer visited Xerox Research Center Webster along with a few lucky Democrat and Chronicle readers for a half-day sneak peek into the lab, seeing demonstrations of new innovations not yet in product.  The team also participated in a user design focus session under the direction of a Xerox researcher, getting a true glimpse into our customer lead innovation efforts.

The article doesn’t attempt to cover all of the developments at Xerox research centers around the world. However, it does provide a glimpse into our current state of research and how we continue to bring more simplicity to the workplace.  Quite fitting to highlight a few of the current innovation projects happening in our labs, especially has we continue to celebrate the 75 anniversary of Chester Carlson’s invention of xerography.
