The cat’s out of the bag — or box — we’ve moved!

To help provide a better web experience for IBM Research, we’ve redesigned our blog, which will now live on our new site:

We’re in the process of moving recent posts over to our new site, but archived posts on past research will continue to live at this address.

Our new blog will continue to bring you in-depth stories of IBM’s research breakthroughs, across AI, hybrid cloud, quantum computing and other fields of scientific study. And be sure to check back often: We’re going to have all sorts of new story formats in the works, soon.


The IBM Research blog has moved! 

Stay up to date with our latest research on our new page.

New smartphone app to navigate blind people to stand in lines with distances

We have developed an AI-driven assistive smartphone app dubbed LineChaser, presented at CHI 2021, that navigates a blind or visually impaired person to the end of a line. It also continuously reports the distance and direction to the last person in the line, so that the blind user can follow them easily.

New research helps make AI fairer in decision-making

To tackle bias in AI, our IBM Research team in collaboration with the University of Michigan has developed practical procedures and tools to help machine learning and AI achieve Individual Fairness. The key idea of Individual Fairness is to treat similar individuals well, similarly, to achieve fairness for everyone.

Our 2 nm chip: the sum of several “Aha!” moments

Today’s announcement isn’t just that our new Gate-All-Around (GAA) nanosheet device architecture enables us to fit 50 billion transistors in a space roughly the size of a fingernail. It’s not just that IBM Research’s second-generation nanosheet technology has paved a path to the 2-nanometer (nm) node. Or that we produced this breakthrough technology on a 300 millimeter (mm) wafer built at IBM Research’s semiconductor research facility in Albany, NY. It’s all of those things, of course.
