During the month of March, IBM Research put the spotlight on a number of women scientists and engineers, and asked them about their professional and personal motivations, journeys and experiences as women — and particularly, as women in STEM. They represent the breadth of career experiences at IBM Research, across disciplines, geographies, ethnicities, tenures and backgrounds, who share a passion for science and tech, as well as a commitment to help all women rise to meet their aspirations.
This is our fifth and final blog post in a series for Women’s History Month 2020 focused on women innovating the future of IBM Research. The tremendous power of digital technology also introduces risk. If it’s hacked, or falls into the wrong hands, it can be used against us. That’s why security research is indispensable. The four women we meet here represent every aspect of it, from blockchain and open source defense to erecting cloud-based fortifications around digital crown jewels.
This month, we are highlighting the work of women researchers at IBM who are pushing the frontiers of hybrid cloud technology. Each of them showcase the tremendous breadth of expertise, and the depth of research, that goes into building this next generation of computing.
This month, we are highlighting the work of four women researchers at IBM who are pushing the frontiers of AI technology. Their efforts extend from work process automation to the design of ever more intelligent chatbots to the discovery of new, more effective antibiotics.
The IBM Quantum team includes a growing cohort of women engaged in every part of the research. In recognition of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, we spoke with four women carrying out crucial roles in the quantum computing revolution.
