C3SR Develops Winning Design for IoT Applications

Researchers at the IBM-Illinois Center for Cognitive Computing Systems Research (C3SR) developed a winning solution in the 2018 DAC System Design Contest, announced last week at the Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco. The contest, jointly sponsored by ACM SIGDA and DAC, challenged worldwide experts to design low-power embedded systems for Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. […]

Using IoT, AI and cloud technologies to advance home-based integrated care

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 […]

IBM Researchers Receive Aegis Graham Bell Award for Work in Digital Agriculture

The earth’s population is 7.6 billion and will rise to 11 billion by the turn of the century. Somehow, we must feed this 45 percent larger population with 10-20 percent less farmable land, and far less farmers. At the same time, a significant fraction of land and productive crop yield will be converted into bioenergy […]

Bio-inspired machine learning goes open source

Since our bio-inspired machine learning technology “Dynamic Boltzmann Machine (DyBM)” debuted in the fall of 2015, we received many comments on the music demo and human evolution image that we used to show how an artificial neural network learns about different topics in different formats. Many developers expressed interest in using the code to let […]

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 […]

Storm in a log file: A one-man weather station

On February 7, 2009, scorching temperatures baked southeastern Australia, while a strong, northerly wind shaped a head-high swell rolling into the southern coast. The surf was excellent and I was thankful to cool off in the Southern Ocean waters near Melbourne, Victoria, but it was a different story inland, where more than 400 bushfires raged. […]
