Microsoft Experience Center

The Microsoft Experience Center is a space within the SOVA Innovation Hub where you can immerse yourself in cutting edge digital applications and interact with technology experts.  The Microsoft Experience Center is designed with Southern Virginia in mind, focusing on content directly related to industries prevalent throughout the region like agriculture, manufacturing, healthcare, and small business.  



The space features a FarmBeats interactive display. FarmBeats is a project initiated by Microsoft to enable data-driven farming to help produce high crop yields. Utilization of low-cost sensors in soil and drones coupled with machine learning algorithms and the knowledge of farmers will help meet the growing demands.
