STOP THE TRAFFIK

There are a variety of ways in which people can be trafficked and enslaved, from labour exploitation to organ harvesting. This takes place all over the world, across all ages, genders and socio-economic backgrounds, so each case is different. The covert nature of these crimes makes it hard to identify and prevent. IBM is working with Stop The Traffik (STT), a UK founded not for profit organisation set up to prevent human trafficking globally. Using an intelligence-led approach STT, with IBM, can analyse human trafficking trends and hotspots and use this information to target awareness programmes that ultimately help disrupt human trafficking.

IBM is working with Stop The Traffik (STT) and other partners to unite, inspire, inform, equip and mobilise communities, through an innovative intelligence-led approach.

Let’s expect more from technology across industries

Sport

Sport

IBM is the official supplier of Information Technology and consultant to the All England Club and Championships, Wimbledon and strategic partner to the RFU, England Rugby.

By analysing real-time and historical data points, tapping the power of predictive analytics and combining this with breakthrough technology, you can understand, reason and learn what it takes to pursue greatness within a sporting arena.

Agriculture

Agriculture for smarter business

The age of smart agriculture is here, so timely since the world’s population is estimated to outpace what the food supply can support. This means producing more food than the industry has grown over the last 8,000 years with the same amount of arable land.

Enter IBM Watson®, which analyses data like temperature, soil pH and other agricultural environmental factors collected from satellites and IoT sensors. This gives farmers insights that can help them make more informed decisions — and harvest the yields everyone needs.

Aviation

Aviation for smarter business

The age of AI-powered aviation is here, helping airlines make flights smoother, customers happier and operations and employees more agile. It’s “all systems go” from digital ticketing to landing.

In an industry fueled by data, technology such as AI, cloud, IoT and blockchain can empower maintenance personnel to identify problems faster and with more confidence. This information helps airlines to accelerate operational performance and enhance passenger services and loyalty.

Automotive

Automotive for smarter business

As drivers and passengers demand more comfort and guidance, automakers can set new standards for intelligent vehicles. Digital technology provides a customer-first approach through a seamless system of interconnected services that map, guide, assist and more.

IBM Watson® technologies and IoT sensors make this new era of connection possible. New driver experiences can help shape future vehicles, such as natural language conversations and weather and location data.

Banking

Banking

Customers demand the choice of how, when and where they do their banking. To keep up, banks need to improve the customer experience with faster service, reduced wait times and first-time problem resolution.

An AI-based virtual assistant - built with Watson - is helping to change the game in call center innovation.

Utilities

Utilities

Most industries are disrupted by people. Utilities is disrupted by forces of nature.

The utility industry is working with IBM to use weather and other data to better help anticipate natural occurrences before they happen, and to identify strategies to mitigate damage and avoid blackouts.

We cannot control the weather, but we can work to harness it.

Environment

Environment for smarter business

The age of smart environmental practices is here, with corporations and citizens working together toward a cleaner, more sustainable future. But it takes more than a global village. AI, IoT and other technologies can help protect both people and the planet.

In an aggressive effort to save endangered species, IBM Watson IoT™ is helping combat rampant rhinoceros poaching in South Africa. Rangers are placing sensors on zebras and impalas — who run when threats are near — to help locate and capture poachers.

Freight and logistics

Freight and logistics for smarter business

Consumers today expect fast, secure deliveries, but paper-based processes can burden the shipping industry. By removing inefficient practices, the supply chain can move faster, can be more trustworthy and can be more efficient.

IBM is working with transportation companies around the world to use blockchain solutions to give greater visibility into millions of container journeys each year. This helps accelerate the shipping process by eliminating paper documents.

Government

Government for smarter business

Government leaders want to improve the lives of their citizens. Citizens want their interactions to be seamless, trustworthy and timely. Enter the digital transformation model from IBM, which helps unifies disparate systems and data streams through IoT, AI, blockchain and advanced analytics.

Healthcare

Healthcare for smarter business

Today’s decisions deserve tomorrow’s insights. IBM Watson Health™ has impacted over 15,000 clients and partners, 80,000 professionals and 185,000 patients and consumers around the world with its AI.

IBM combines resources and technologies to help address the challenges of a changing industry. By doing so, IBM is creating the path from today to the future that healthcare organizations need to fully realise potential opportunities and maximise ROI.

Insurance

Insurance for smarter business

The age of smart insurance is here, with blockchain, AI and cloud opening new pathways to innovate, compete and profit. Transformative thinking that’s data-driven embraces modernisation and digital customer engagement to help address risk management and compliance issues.

For one global insurance provider, smart insurance means optimising the customer experience through AI. Intelligent chatbots handle commonly asked questions, helping to reduce call volume while freeing up sales agents to do what they do best — create relationships and sell.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing for smarter business

With digital transformation disrupting traditional manufacturing processes, AI, IoT and the cloud will serve as the core foundational technologies critical for optimal plant floor operability, supply chain agility and ecosystem profitability.

Manufacturers are turning to IBM Watson to forecast and address, in real time, the bottom-line impact inclement weather has on raw material delivery and how to anticipate and address equipment failures to help minimise productivity and production losses.

Oil and gas

Oil and gas for smarter business

Oil and data are two of the world’s most valuable resources; their futures are intertwined. Oil and gas companies are working with IBM to better understand the complex systems and equipment used in exploration and production.

IBM Watson® AI solutions use data from IoT sensors, millions of files, decision logs and evaluations from around the world. This information helps engineers make more informed operational decisions to help avoid equipment problems.

Music

Plastic Bank

What happens when you apply technology in new ways? Plastic Bank uses IBM Blockchain technology — tackling ocean plastic and global poverty with blockchain-based digital credits.

Retail

Retail for smarter business

Smart retailing isn’t only about catching the latest consumer trend but also embracing disruption for competitive advantage. First, it was digital. Now, it’s machine learning and robotics that can help propel supply chain efficiencies, personalisation and better forecasting for growth.

IBM Watson® AI and augmented reality help Sephora capitalise on digital disruption by allowing customers to virtually apply makeup on their mobile devices, find the right eyeshadow on a mobile, AI-based system or sample fragrances via in-store touchscreens that emit scents.

Telecom and media

Telecom and media for smarter business

Digital transformation is upending telecommunications and media companies as new competitive, consumer and technological forces are changing the overall mission. Traditional thinking requires a reimagining that is business smart and future-proof.

Communications service providers and media companies are meeting these forces head-on through advanced technologies such as IoT, blockchain, cloud and AI. These solutions can be utilised to help enable the transformation of networks, personalised customer experiences and more informed operational decision-making.
