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.

Deep Document Understanding: IBM’s AI extracts data from complex documents

Using novel deep learning architectures, we have developed an AI that could help organizations, enterprises, and data scientists to easily extract data from vast collections of documents. Our technology allows users to quickly customize high-quality extraction models. It transforms the documents, making it possible to use the text they contain for other downstream processes such as building a knowledge graph out of the extracted content.

IBM RXN for Chemistry: Unveiling the grammar of the organic chemistry language

In our paper “Extraction of organic chemistry grammar from unsupervised learning of chemical reactions,” published in the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances, we extract the "grammar" of organic chemistry's "language" from a large number of organic chemistry reactions. For that, we used RXNMapper, a cutting-edge, open-source atom-mapping tool we developed.

From HPC Consortium’s success to National Strategic Computing Reserve

Founded in March 2020 just as the pandemic’s wave was starting to wash over the world, the Consortium has brought together 43 members with supercomputing resources. Private and public enterprises, academia, government and technology companies, many of whom are typically rivals. “It is simply unprecedented,” said Dario Gil, Senior Vice President and Director of IBM Research, one of the founding organizations. “The outcomes we’ve achieved, the lessons we’ve learned, and the next steps we have to pursue are all the result of the collective efforts of these Consortium’s community.” The next step? Creating the National Strategic Computing Reserve to help the world be better prepared for future global emergencies.
