IBM Differential Privacy Library: The single line of code that can protect your data

IBM published a new release of its IBM Differential Privacy Library, which boasts a suite of tools for machine learning and data analytics tasks, all with built-in privacy guarantees. It's not unlike the the differential privacy the US Census will use to keep the responses of its citizens confidential when the data is made available.

Using Generative AI to Accelerate Drug Discovery

Novel drug design is difficult, costly and time-consuming. On average, it takes $3 billion and 12 to 14 years for a new drug to reach market. One third of this overall cost and time is attributed to the drug discovery phase requiring the synthetization of thousands of molecules to develop a single pre-clinical lead candidate. […]

Biological remodelling of liquid water

It is well known that the human body is mostly composed of water: The brain, for example, is 75 percent water and even bones are not “dry” – containing as much as one third water. All of this water maintains the shape and structure of biological cells and is involved in numerous biochemical processes. It […]

Impact of the SQL Relational Model 50 years later

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 […]

Biologically-Inspired Deep Learning Predicts Chords of Bach

Today, as reported in Nature Machine Intelligence, my colleagues and I have demonstrated a novel approach to deep learning that incorporates biologically-inspired neural dynamics and enables in-memory acceleration, bringing it closer to the way in which the human brain works. The results point towards the broad adoption of more biologically-realistic deep learning for applications in […]

IBM Research addressing Enterprise NLP challenges in 2020

The field of Natural Language Processing (NLP) has made large strides over the last decade. In fact, NLP is so common in today’s AI applications that whether consumers are communicating with a virtual assistant, asking for travel directions or searching for weather predictions, chances are they’re interacting with some form of NLP. This technology, however, […]
