Technological Singularity: the moment when robots reach a level of intelligence that is superior to the current level of human reasonableness or ability to predict the outcomes of unrestrained technological growth. As a consequence, the economic, cultural and political singularity of human civilization follows. And although the singularity is still the subject of many Hollywood films …

Can the tiny microbes on your leg reveal your age, or that you smoke? Or that you are menopausal? Billions of microbes live on our skin, they help maintain skin condition, they are our first line of defense from external pathogens and can impact how we respond to treatment. These microbes, which are one tenth …

Self-driving cars, text to speech, artificial intelligence (AI) services and delivery drones — just a few obvious applications of AI. To keep fueling the AI gold rush, we’ve been improving the very heart of AI hardware technology: digital AI cores that power deep learning, the key enabler of artificial intelligence. At IBM Research, we’ve been …

From recruitment to credit risk apps, or use in the healthcare and criminal justice system, AI unreliability has been giving researchers headaches for years. We’ve tackled the issue by flipping it upside down. Our team has developed an AI that verifies other AIs’ “fairness” by generating a set of counterfactual text samples and testing machine …

IBM introduced capabilities in its IBM TRIRIGA integrated workplace management system that is designed to use artificial intelligence and near real-time insights to help organizations create a safe, productive and efficient workplace. These new capabilities include dynamic space planning, indoor wayfinding and a virtual assistant and are designed to help support organizations’ return to work and support employee …

Privacy is vital – even more so in the modern era of AI. But AI trained on personal data can be hacked. Even if the hacker doesn’t access the training data, there’s still a risk of leaking sensitive information from the models themselves. For example, it may be possible to reveal if someone’s data is …

Pain. We will all experience it at some point, and some of us suffer from it chronically. Still, measuring and treating pain is one of the most difficult and complex healthcare issues. Together with Boston Scientific, a leading medical device technology company, we have developed a new method to measure pain. Our team of neuroscientists, …

Cats aren’t dogs. Even modern AI knows that. But how exactly AI distinguishes cat images from those of dogs is not clear. Standard neural networks are akin to a black box, as even the people who program them often have little to no idea how they make decisions. It’s not as critical when it’s just …

Actions have consequences. And typically, when something happens, the order of the causes of the event really does matter. But understanding exactly how each action affects the final result is not always easy. Our latest work, “Order-Dependent Event Models for Agent Interactions,” presented at the International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence Organization (IJCAI), can help. …

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 …
