Our study "Comparison of methods to reduce bias from clinical prediction models of postpartum depression” examines healthcare data and machine learning models routinely used in both research and application to address bias in healthcare AI.
At the 2021 virtual edition of the ACM International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI), researchers at IBM will present five full papers, two workshop papers, and two demos.
Unveiled at the two-year anniversary of the IBM Research AI Hardware Center, AI Hardware Composer for analog AI hardware enables one to master and accelerate the AI hardware technology to power more sustainable AI models. It’s one of many upcoming developments of the AI Hardware Center, launched in 2019 to innovate across materials, devices, architecture and algorithms.
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.
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.
IBM is supporting marine research organization ProMare to provide the technologies for the Mayflower Autonomous Ship (MAS). Named after another famous ship from history but very much future focussed, the new Mayflower uses AI and energy from the sun to independently traverse the ocean, gathering vital data to expand our understanding of the factors influencing its health.
The Cleveland Clinic + IBM Discovery Accelerator to advance pathogen research, and foster the next-gen tech workforce for healthcare.
During the month of March, IBM Research put the spotlight on a number of women scientists and engineers, and asked them about their professional and personal motivations, journeys and experiences as women — and particularly, as women in STEM. They represent the breadth of career experiences at IBM Research, across disciplines, geographies, ethnicities, tenures and backgrounds, who share a passion for science and tech, as well as a commitment to help all women rise to meet their aspirations.
In our recent paper, "Optimal periodic closure for minimizing risk in emerging disease outbreaks," published in PLoS One, we developed a technique to calculate the optimal duration of a periodic lockdown during an outbreak of an infectious disease where there is no cure or vaccine. Our findings are different from the lockdown duration being widely applied, today.
In our latest paper, “Unassisted Noise Reduction of Chemical Reaction Data Sets” in Nature Machine Intelligence, we explore the application of NLP techniques to automate the identification of “language outliers” or the noise in chemical datasets.
In a newly published paper “Quantitative language features identify placebo responders in chronic back pain” in the peer-reviewed journal PAIN, we report the first proof-of-concept that uses AI to analyze patients’ clinical trial experiences. The AI quantifies a placebo response in patients with chronic pain and distinguishes those who respond to placebo from those who do not.
