Introducing the IBM Research Technology Atlas.   As leaders in our industries, we’re tasked with exploring and mapping emerging markets, and how they intersect with new and ever-evolving technologies. We do this with imperfect information, in a world with ever-shifting societal, political, and environmental landscapes. To successfully navigate anything, you need tools and data, and …

In machine learning, understanding why a model makes certain decisions is often just as important as whether those decisions are correct. For instance, a machine-learning model might correctly predict that a skin lesion is cancerous, but it could have done so using an unrelated blip on a clinical photo. While tools exist to help experts make …

A project funded by the STFC Hartree Centre Discovery Accelerator predicts patient response to ailments like ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease treatment with 95% accuracy. Artificial intelligence could soon help the more than 6 million1 people around the world who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) choose the best drug for their condition. Research just published2 in PLOSone describes …

IBM scientists and researchers received 9,130 U.S. patents in 2020, the most of any company, marking 28 consecutive years of IBM patent leadership. IBM led the industry in the number of artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, quantum computing and security-related patents granted.  “The world needs scientific thinking and action more than ever. IBM’s sustained commitment to …

Ever noticed that annoying lag that sometimes happens during the internet streaming from, say, your favorite football game? Called latency, this brief delay between a camera capturing an event and the event being shown to viewers is surely annoying during the decisive goal at a World Cup final. But it could be deadly for a …

Neurodegenerative diseases are disorders that progressively affect neurons in the brain, altering their function and causing their death. They include many different disorders, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, which are among the top causes of disability and death and cost hundreds of billions of dollars per year in the U.S. alone (1). Huntington’s disease …
