How chronic pain reshapes our brain activity

The process of understanding and managing chronic pain is complex, because everyone’s experience with pain is unique.  In the United States, at least 116 million U.S. adults are burdened by chronic pain, with an economic cost of well above 500 billion per year[1]. And yet, as pervasive as it is, we’ve never had a way […]

Largest Dataset for Document Layout Analysis Used to Ingest COVID-19 Data

Documents in Portable Document Format (PDF) are ubiquitous with over 2.5 trillion available from insurance documents to medical files to peer-review scientific articles. It represents one of the main sources of knowledge both online and offline. For example, just recently The White House made available the COVID-19 Open Research Dataset, which included links to 45,826 papers […]

Iso-accuracy Deep Learning Inference with In-memory Computing

Can analog AI hardware support deep learning inference without compromising accuracy? Our research team at IBM Research Europe in Zurich thought so when we started developing a groundbreaking technique that achieves both energy efficiency and high accuracy on deep neural network computations using phase-change memory devices. We believe this could be a way forward in […]

Let’s Create the Science Readiness Reserves – an Elite Scientific Body to Advise on Catastrophes

We believe that now is the time to create a new scientific body, the Science Readiness Reserves, composed of scientists and organizations that voluntarily choose to take part. They would bring together the best from the public and the private sectors, recognizing that the scientific capacity of any member nation is distributed across government, academia, foundations and industry.
