In this blogpost, the fourth in our series dedicated to Women in IBM Research, we meet four scientists - in Japan, Switzerland, California and New York. They’re working to transform computing with AI hardware accelerators, nanosheet technology, and spintronics. The goal is not simply to make smarter machines, but to create deep-learning platforms that help solve our most pressing and intractable problems.
This is the first of a four-part series about IBM featured papers at IEDM 2016. The annual International Electron Devices Meeting is “the world’s pre-eminent forum for reporting technological breakthroughs in the areas of semiconductor and electronic device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling.” So IBM researchers brought their scanning probe thermometer, their air spacer for […]
Earlier this month the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) announced the recipients of the 2016 AISES Professional of the Year Awards. Among those being honored was IBM Master Inventor Tara Astigarraga who received the Technical Excellence award for her contributions to science, engineering and technology. As an enrolled member of the Choctaw Nation […]
A Q&A with IBM Research’s Hillery Hunter IBM’s latest Power servers come with an AI twist. Optimized for deep learning, a new so-called PowerAI toolkit will “help train the systems to think and learn in a more human-like way, at a faster pace,” as announced at SC16, the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, […]
