In 2021, our hybrid cloud predictions show that we expect businesses to address challenges in ways that will apply new resources and strategies to drive business outcomes, in a world that will continue to require new advances in cloud and AI research.
AI’s unprecedented demand for data, power and system resources poses the greatest challenge to realizing this optimistic vision of the future. To meet that demand, we’re developing a new class of inherently energy-efficient AI hardware accelerators that will increase compute power by orders of magnitude, in hybrid cloud environments, without the demand for increased energy.
IBM Research plays a crucial role in advancing the foundational technology needed to support the artificial intelligence (AI) and hybrid cloud technologies driving IBM’s strategic business goals.
