The promise of the Internet of Things: This integration should ideally map to a decentralized hardware and software platform.
A new release of the Adversarial Robustness Toolbox provides a method for defending against poisoning and "backdoor" attacks in machine learning models.
What’s a quantum circuit? A quantum circuit can be a tricky thing. Quantum computing promises to be faster than classical computing in some, but not all computational problems. Whether quantum computers can be faster than classical computers depends on the nature of the problem being solved. When speedups are possible, the magnitude of the speedup […]
The Decision Science, AI and Natural Language Processing team at IBM Research-Ireland recently presented a conference paper called “Decision Conversations Decoded” at the 16th Annual Conference of the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics: Human Language Technologies (NAACL HLT). The team also presented a demo of our virtual assistant prototype, which analyses collaborative decision […]
One of the largest growing demographics in the EU is individuals aged 65 and over, and two thirds of this group are in situation of multimorbidity, i.e., perons who suffer from two or more chronic diseases. The ineffective treatment of multimorbidity has been pointed out as an urgent problem to address by the Academy of […]
In today’s interconnected world, an incredible amount of data is being sensed, uploaded and stored for analysis. While the resulting enormous data sets are a valuable engine of innovation, they also present new challenges to data analysis for researchers and businesses. It is critical that data privacy is maintained and that a framework is in place to […]
Recent years have seen tremendous advances in the development of artificial intelligence (AI). Modern AI systems achieve human-level performance on cognitive tasks such as recognizing objects in images, annotating videos, converting speech to text, or translating between different languages. Many of these breakthrough results are based on Deep Neural Networks (DNNs). DNNs are complex machine […]
Building a successful team isn’t just about finding experts, it is about building a team made up of people who fill different but compatible roles. Team members bring with them their diverse experience, knowledge and social connections which benefit from the team, but also people have to have a certain level of overlapping knowledge […]
Here at IBM Research – Ireland, we are rethinking the very foundations on which the cloud is built. We are developing a concept and prototype for low-power and high-utilization disaggregated cloud data centres that break known boundaries, enabling the dynamic creation of fit-for-purpose computing environments from a pool of disaggregated resources. Today’s cloud data centres […]
