IBM & MIT Roundtable: Solving AI’s Big Challenges Requires a Hybrid Approach

Share this post:

At IBM Research’s recent “The Path to More Flexible AI” virtual roundtable, a panel of MIT and IBM experts discussed some of the biggest obstacles they face in developing artificial intelligence that can perform optimally in real-world situations.

The solution, they agreed during the July 8 panel, is to embrace an integrated AI paradigm that amplifies the strengths and compensates for the weaknesses found in different approaches, including symbolic programming and deep learning.

AI Could Help Enable Accurate Remote Monitoring of Parkinson’s Patients

In a paper recently published in Nature Scientific Reports, IBM Research and scientists from several other medical institutions developed a new way to estimate the severity of a person’s Parkinson’s disease (PD) symptoms by remotely measuring and analyzing physical activity as motor impairment increased. Using data captured by wrist-worn accelerometers, we created statistical representations of […]

Reducing Speech-to-Text Model Training Time on Switchboard-2000 from a Week to Under Two Hours

Published in our recent ICASSP 2020 paper in which we successfully shorten the training time on the 2000-hour Switchboard dataset, which is one of the largest public ASR benchmarks, from over a week to less than two hours on a 128-GPU IBM high-performance computing cluster. To the best of our knowledge, this is the fastest training time recorded on this dataset.
