IBM's Charu Aggarwal earns the 2021 IEEE W. Wallace McDowell Award in recognition of his extensive body of work, particularly in the areas of high-dimensional data analysis, data stream research and data privacy techniques. The W. Wallace McDowell Award, referred to as the "IT Nobel," is named after the former director of engineering at IBM during the development of the pioneering IBM 701 electronic data processing machine in the early 1950s.
IBM Research has initiated focused efforts called Code Risk Analyzer to bring security and compliance analytics to DevSecOps. Code Risk Analyzer is a new feature of IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery, a cloud service that helps provision toolchains, automate builds and tests, and control quality with analytics.
Fifty years ago this month, IBM researcher and computing pioneer Edgar Frank Codd published the seminal paper “A Relational Model of Data for Large Shared Data Banks,” which became the foundation of Structured Query Language (SQL), a language originally built to manage structured data with relational properties. Today SQL is one of the world’s most […]
The 45th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing is taking place virtually from May 4-8. IBM Research AI is pleased to support the conference as a bronze patron and to share our latest research results, described in nine papers that will be presented at the conference.
No organization is safe against cybercrime. Recent studies have shown that these crimes will cost the world well over $5 trillion a year by 2024. Cyber attackers breach corporate networks using a myriad of techniques, with application vulnerabilities corresponding to 25% of all exploitable attack vectors. More disturbing is that these attacks can go unnoticed […]
With the festive season just days away, it’s not just turkey and cranberry sauce flying off the supermarket shelves. It’s also champagne, wine, gin… and, of course, whisky. And it better be genuine. IBM researchers are working on technologies to help you make sure the whisky you buy is indeed what it says on the […]
IBM scientists presented three papers at INTERSPEECH 2019 that address the shortcomings of End-to-end automatic approaches for speech recognition - an emerging paradigm in the field of neural network-based speech recognition that offers multiple benefits.
Today, IBM is launching the new z15 mainframe, the culmination of four years of collaborative development company-wide, with a focus on meeting crucial customer data security and privacy needs across hybrid multicloud environments. To build this ground-breaking new system to meet these client demands, IBM Research partnered with IBM Systems to help develop a new […]
Why do targeted cancer therapies often fail? We have acquired so much more understanding about cancer in the last fifty years than in the last five thousand years. Approaches to patient treatments have dramatically changed, and statistics show significant improvement in patient response and outcomes to therapy in the last half a century . Yet […]
A team of researchers from IBM Research AI and AI Horizons Network-partner the University of Michigan published the papers “A Large-Scale Corpus for Conversation Disentanglement” and “Learning End-to-End Goal-Oriented Dialog with Maximal User Task Success and Minimal Human Agent Use” at ACL 2019. This work address two main challenges in building enterprise AI assistants.
