IBM Research and its university partners including: UC Santa Cruz; Cornell University and Cornell Tech; University of Illinois at Urbana Champagne; Oregon State University are collaborating on new programming systems and languages to build secure cryptographic applications.
Both financial crime and disparities in who can access financial services are growing. To help solve this, IBM Research is building new AI and data encryption tools to help keep data safe, cybercrime at bay, and make financial services more accessible.
If we can protect videos, audio and photos with digital watermarking, why not AI models? This is the question my colleagues and I asked ourselves as we looked to develop a technique to assure developers that their hard work in building AI, such as deep learning models, can be protected. You may be thinking, “Protected […]
“The prettiest thing I had ever seen” is not how IBM researcher Shai Halevi describes the beaches in Israel where he grew up. Or the sunset after a long day of hiking in Mitzpe Ramon desert. Rather, he saves these words to describe the first time he saw a cryptographic equation as an undergrad student. […]
Each year, we showcase some of the biggest breakthroughs coming out of IBM Research’s global labs – five technologies that we believe will fundamentally reshape business and society in the next five years.
Quantum computing, future of AI and celebrity guest speakers make up the IBM Research lineup for Think 2018, IBM’s upcoming megaconference in Las Vegas. IBM Research will be the feature of over 45 sessions at Think 2018, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 19-22. IBM’s biggest industry and innovation event of the year will […]
A new paper, from the IBM scientists behind many of the thousands of lines of code in Hyperledger Fabric, reveals the rationale and the thought process for the architecture, for the first time. It all started about two years ago with late night calls between Zurich and the US. IBM researchers were bouncing ideas off […]
We can all thank an elementary school teacher for keeping our electronic data safe and secure. Growing up in Argentina, and studying in Israel, not far from where his career started at IBM’s Haifa Lab, IBM Fellow and cryptographer, Hugo M. Krawczyk cites his third-grade teacher as one of his first influences. “She piqued my […]
Every year, CareerCast publishes a widely-reported list of the top 10 most stressful jobs. The 2017 list includes some obvious careers including military service, firefighter, and police officer, who risk their lives every day. The list also includes several less life-threatening jobs including TV news broadcaster and taxi driver. But what if you had the […]
In 2001, IBM Research cryptographer Christian Cachin and his team developed consensus protocols for building distributed trusted services, which could be run among a group of servers over the Internet. As described in an IEEE paper titled Distributing Trust on The Internet, their protocols work correctly even if some servers are being hacked. Does this […]
Dr. Tal Rabin, head of the cryptography research group at the Thomas J. Watson Research Center, has been elected to the 236th class of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Tal is the 14th IBMer to receive this honor. The 213 members of the 2016 class span academic and intellectual disciplines, and include recipients […]
