IBM Innovation Center Silicon Valley
The press release from IBM is tantalizing and promises a new type of computer chips : IBM Unveils Cognitive Computing Chips:
Today, IBM researchers unveiled a new generation of experimental computer chips designed to emulate the brain’s abilities for perception, action and cognition. The technology could yield many orders of magnitude less power consumption and space than used in today’s computers.
In a sharp departure from traditional concepts in designing and building computers, IBM’s first neurosynaptic computing chips recreate the phenomena between spiking neurons and synapses in biological systems, such as the brain, through advanced algorithms and silicon circuitry. Its first two prototype chips have already been fabricated and are currently undergoing testing.
Stacey Higginbotham writes about the new IBM chips on GigaOm:For our sensor heavy future, IBM cooks up a new silicon brain
That’s where this new silicon comes in. IBM calls them neurosynaptic chips, and it’s architected in a completely different way than current semiconductors. Instead of creating silicon that has a processing core, a bus and a memory cache, IBM has taken a page from the human brain. The integrated memory is represented by synapses, computation by neurons and communication by axons. The current version is far less impressive than the human brain which has billion of neurons — this chip has 256. But the breakthrough here is not just about the new architecture but what that architecture means and where it fits in with the future of computing.
We'll have more on this exciting story as it unfolds.
IBM and Smarter Healthcare at the San Mateo IBM Innovation Center
Seminar on the latest healthcare trends at the San Mateo IBM Innovation Center. earlier today
IBM Smarter Healthcare is one of IBM's focal areas, and the San Mateo IBM Innovation Center is heavily focusing on Smarter Healthcare and especially on working with Business Partners who want to integrate their healthcare solutions with the IBM Health Integration Framework. So how does a company with a Healthcarde IT solution get started working with IBM? Let's start out by reading up on what IBM is doing in healthcare: IBM and Healthcare
Then, once we are ready to get started engaging with IBM, we should Join IBM Developer Relations. It is free and only takes a few minutes
Then, we recommend that you attend a live seminar at the San Mateo IBM Innovation Center, or any other IBM Innovation Center on how to begin working with IBM at one of IBM's many Innovation Centers Maximize your relationship with IBM: Technology for a smarter planet
We can then read up on what it takes to Integrate and Validate for the IBM Health Integration Framework
It is as simple as that. Need more information? Just put a comment on this blog post and we'll talk.
IBM Smarter Healthcare is a global initiative from IBM that introduces advanced IT-based technologies to the burgeoning healthcare field.
Technologies like Business Analytics for Healthcare, Patient Portals and SOA-based Enterprise Service Bus will allow healthcare providers to crunch the numbers associated with today's massive amount of clinical data in Health Care, to route it between departments and hospitals in regional healthcare networks and finally to make it available to doctors and patients alike.
Many of these technologies can be seen at the IBM Innovation Center in Stockholm, from where the picture was taken by a visiting group from the IBM Innovation Center in San Mateo in California.
Yes, the IBM Innovation Centers span the globe and collaborate intimately among themselves. An IBM Business Partner in California with customers in Scandinavia, or vice versa, can therefore get help locally to reach out to overseas markets.

Join us on May 23, 2011 and find out how to Cloud-enable your applications!
Have you been looking for a workshop designed for your needs, interests and challenges? One that gives you something you can take away and use? Are you looking for just the right amount of presented content and open interaction?
The Enterprise Cloud Workshop offers all that and more. The Cloud Workshop runs from noon-5:30 pm and is moderated by Dave Nielsen, founder of CloudCamp and Larry Carvalho, Entrepreneur and founder of RobustCloud. With more than 150 successful Cloud Camps under their belts, Dave and Larry bring an incredible wealth of experience and expertise to the workshop.
In addition, Dustin Amrhien, IBM WebSphere Client Technical Professional, who has spoken and written widely about cloud technology, will talk about rapidly delivering innovative services onto the private cloud. Dustin will also participate in the personalized assessments.
Find out about OSSM ("Awesome") Clouds--On-demand, Self-service, Scalable and Measured. Review real and hypothetical applications you want to run in the cloud. Assess the risks and benefits of moving your applications to public or private clouds. And, best of all, get your own, personalized assessment at the end of the workshop from one of the facilitators.
