IoT neurons go macro, go global with DyBM

Imagine covering the globe with a sheet of artificial, internet-enabled neurons. And these Internet of Things (IoT) neurons could send their local information to other neurons just like the synapses in our brains. For example, a ground temperature neuron at one location gets collected and shared with air quality neurons, and vice versa. This spatio-temporal […]

Automating low-level tasks for data scientists

Data scientists are among the most sought after professionals in the IT industry. In 2012, Harvard Business Review called data scientist “the sexiest job of the 21st century.” The professionals turn raw data into actionable insights that help drive business value or, sometimes, even disrupt industries or create entirely new ones. Surprisingly, however, data scientists […]

Training Watson to see what’s on your plate

Today, we’re introducing our latest AI research in the form of a new beta feature: the IBM Watson Visual Recognition food model. This feature provides a built-in capability for recognizing 2,000+ different foods within images, providing enhanced specificity and accuracy in this content domain compared to Visual Recognition’s general tagging feature. Using the food model, […]

Facilitating peer review with cognitive computing

Applying for or allocating funding for scientific research takes up a significant amount of time and energy, both from the scientists and the national foundations that evaluate the science itself. Almost 10 percent of the NSF budget is allocated to the review and management of awards, and this figure is nearly 20 percent for the […]
