IBM Research, Inc Key Developments

IBM Research Announces Multi-Year Collaboration with the Department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at MIT

IBM Research has announced a multi-year collaboration with the Department of Brain & Cognitive Sciences at MIT to advance the scientific field of machine vision, a core aspect of artificial intelligence. The new IBM-MIT Laboratory for Brain-inspired Multimedia Machine Comprehension's (BM3C) goal will be to develop cognitive computing systems that emulate the human ability to understand and integrate inputs from multiple sources of audio and visual information into a detailed computer representation of the world that can be used in a variety of computer applications in industries such as healthcare, education, and entertainment. The BM3C will address technical challenges around both pattern recognition and prediction methods in the field of machine vision that are currently impossible for machines alone to accomplish. For instance, humans watching a short video of a real-world event can easily recognize and produce a verbal description of what happened in the clip as well as assess and predict the likelihood of a variety of subsequent events, but for a machine, this ability is currently impossible. Beginning in September 2016 in Cambridge, the BM3C collaboration will bring together leading brain, cognitive, and computer scientists to conduct research in the field of unsupervised machine understanding of audio-visual streams of data, using insights from next-generation models of the brain to inform advances in machine vision. The vision is that this integrated cross-disciplinary research will lead to advances that are likely to change both personal and professional lives - from helping clinicians improve elderly and disabled care to helping organizations maintain and repair complex machinery as well as a host of cross-industry applications.

IBM Research Opens Second Research Location in South Africa

IBM Research opened its second research location on the African continent and announced several new project collaborations in the areas of data driven healthcare, digital urban ecosystems and astronomy. IBM researchers in South Africa with backgrounds in machine learning, mathematics, computer science, robotics, genomics and computational biology, are exploring the use of cognitive computing, the Internet of Things and Big Data to support South Africa's national priorities, drive skills development and foster innovation-based economic growth. The lab's team of scientists is already collaborating extensively with local universities, research institutions, innovation centers, start-ups and government agencies. This will help foster South Africa's emerging technology ecosystem and develop and scale new innovations.

IBM and University of Maryland, Baltimore County Collaborate to Create the Accelerated Cognitive Cybersecurity Laboratory

IBM Research announced plans for a multi-year collaboration to create the Accelerated Cognitive Cybersecurity Laboratory (ACCL), which will be housed within the College of Engineering and Information Technology at UMBC. Opening in the fall of 2016, the lab will work to advance scientific frontiers in the application of cognitive computing to cybersecurity via analytics and machine learning, while also exploring specialized computer power optimized for these new intensive computing workloads. Cybersecurity threats are growing in both volume and sophistication. This issue is compounded by a growing shortage of security professionals, expected to reach 1.5 million unfilled positions by 2020. With the ACCL, IBM and UMBC will explore new ways to apply cognitive technologies which are able to digest, learn from, and reason over vast amounts of structured and unstructured data to help cybersecurity professionals gain an advantage in the battle against cybercrime. UMBC researchers will collaborate with IBM scientists to push the frontiers of research and develop innovative technology that will be able to, with a human analyst in the loop, detect, analyze and mitigate sophisticated threats quickly. This collaboration is part of IBM's ongoing academic initiatives that help students develop skills and understanding of cognitive computing to meet the increasing demand for high-skilled technology professionals. UMBC is one of eight leading universities in North America working to train IBM'sWatson for application in the cybersecurity space. Watson uses natural language processing to understand the vague and imprecise nature of human language in unstructured data. It can provide insights into emerging threats, as well as recommendations on how to stop them, increasing the speed and capabilities of security professionals.
