From Seed to Shelf: How IBM Innovations Will Transform Every Stage of the Food Supply Chain Within the Next Five Years
The annual 5 in 5 – five breakthroughs out of IBM's global labs that stand to help improve our lives in the next five years.
Here I describe an approach to efficiently train deep learning models on machine learning cloud platforms (e.g., IBM Watson Machine Learning) when the training dataset consists of a large number of small files (e.g., JPEG format) and is stored in an object store like IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS). As an example, I train a […]
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 […]
In the technology realm, containers are an approach to running a compute environment, a bit like virtual machines (VM). Users typically prefer containers because they use resources more efficiently, start and stop much faster, and are less expensive to maintain. IBM Research co-developed Ubiquity with the IBM Cloud Storage Solutions team with the objective of […]
I recently participated in a panel at Applied Materials’ 2017 Analyst Day to talk about artificial intelligence (AI). Yes, a materials company asked me, an executive overseeing semiconductor research, to join other technologists to give our view of AI – demonstrating how interest in AI has permeated all aspects of the IT industry! To lead […]
In June last year I reported here the open sourcing of Amalgam8 – a microservice fabric first to provide a central control over layer 7 routing across a mesh of microservices that constitutes a cloud app. The value of Amalgam8 is in removing the burden and complexity of integrating the smaller microservices that comprise an […]
More than 4 million people, across every state in the US, participated in the January 22 Women’s March. And the recent Earth Day marches spanned six continents. The messages were clear – but there were hundreds if not thousands of them (from pink knitted caps, to “There’s No Planet B” scrawled on cardboard signs). I […]
Vita Bortnikov has had to cross quite a few bridges – from her childhood in Ukraine, to choosing a career path after only two years in Israel, and through her years at IBM. What seemed like a cut-and-dried choice to 18-year-old Vita – mathematics or computers – has led to a successful and satisfying professional […]
