Dr. Dario Gil is a leading technologist and senior executive at IBM. As Vice President of Science and Solutions of IBM Research, Dr. Gil directs a global organization of some 1,500 researchers across 11 laboratories. He has direct responsibility for …

deep learningIBM demonstrates 10x faster large-scale machine learning

No Comments
Together with EPFL scientists, our IBM Research team has developed a scheme for training big data sets quickly. It can process a 30 Gigabyte training dataset in less than one minute using a single graphics processing unit (GPU) — a …

blockchainBlockchain identity management could replace passwords and fix many hacking problems

No Comments
IBM, other large companies and startups are working on a global shift to decentralized identity that is built on blockchain technology. This would mean a person would control their digital identity and would not need to use passwords for systems …

ibmIBM has 50 qubit prototype chip which should be close to Quantum Supremacy

3 Comments
Quantum Supremacy is when quantum computers become faster than classical computers. Once Quantum Computers surpass classical computers they will continue to improve at a far more rapid pace. Doubling the transistors on a regular chip might achieve double the performance …

IBM today announced a new blockchain banking solution that will help financial institutions address the processes of universal cross-border payments, designed to reduce the settlement time and lower the cost of completing global payments for businesses and consumers. Using IBM …

computers40 years too late- Bill Gates says ctrl-alt-delete should have been one button

No Comments
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says if he could go back in time, there’d be something more intuitive than the two-handed Ctrl-Alt-Delete command to interrupt a process. In 2013 Gates said it was “mistake” requiring the three keys before logging in …

ibmNew Approach to Simulate Chemistry with Quantum Computing

No Comments
IBM scientists have developed a new approach to simulate molecules on a quantum computer that may one day help revolutionize chemistry and materials science. The scientists successfully used a seven-qubit quantum processor to address the molecular structure problem for beryllium …
