The Apollo 11 Lessons We Live by Today

In 1969, more than 4,000 IBMers worked alongside NASA to land Apollo 11 on the moon. And for each day of the many months they worked writing code, programming computers and running simulations, they never stopped thinking: What else could we do? What contingency can we plan for? What are we forgetting? In fact, it […]

AI is Not Magic: It’s Time to Demystify and Apply

For centuries, electricity was thought to be the domain of sorcerers – magicians who left audiences puzzled about where it came from and how it was generated.

‘Ask Mercedes’ – The End of the Car Manual As We Know It

“How do I turn on my rear defroster?” and “What type of fuel does this car need?” are the kinds of questions that can send new car owners diving into glovebox for the car manual. Or, they simply start pressing random buttons, hoping for the best.
