DualTKB: A Dual Learning Bridge between Text and Knowledge Base

Capturing and structuring common knowledge from the real world to make it available to computer systems is one of the foundational principles of IBM Research. The real-world information is often naturally organized as graphs (e.g., world wide web, social networks) where knowledge is represented not only by the data content of each node, but also […]

Meet the women in IBM Research securing your digital future

This is our fifth and final blog post in a series for Women’s History Month 2020 focused on women innovating the future of IBM Research. The tremendous power of digital technology also introduces risk. If it’s hacked, or falls into the wrong hands, it can be used against us. That’s why security research is indispensable. The four women we meet here represent every aspect of it, from blockchain and open source defense to erecting cloud-based fortifications around digital crown jewels.
