Who. What. Why. New IBM algorithm models how the order of prior actions impacts events

To address the problem of ordinal impacts, our team at IBM T. J. Watson Research Center has developed OGEMs – or Ordinal Graphical Event Models – new dynamic, probabilistic graphical models for events. These models are part of the broader family of statistical and causal models called graphical event models (GEMs) that represent temporal relations where the dynamics are governed by a multivariate point process.

New IBM-MIT system brings AI to microcontrollers – paving the way to ‘smarter’ IoT

Enter microcontrollers of the future – the simplest, very small computers. They run on batteries for months or years and control the functions of the systems embedded in our home appliances and other electronics.
