IBM wants to embed its cognitive supercomputer Watson into the next generation of smartphone apps.
IBM releases its annual list that predicts five future technology trends for the next five years.
Forget air fans: using liquid cooling techniques is the next big thing in creating supercomputers.
According to IBM, this stop-motion film (made with individual molecules of carbon monoxide) is the smallest movie that has been, or ever will be, created.
IBM's new antimicrobial hydrogel tackles diseased biofilms and kills drug resistant bacteria.
Filmmakers often use real companies and organizations for their research, but sometimes science fiction and science fact don't quite agree.
In tech, five years is an eternity. Five years ago, it was 2007. You probably don't even remember 2007. I certainly don't: 2007 was 5,000 articles ago. IBM has a longer memory than us all, however, and based on its history, the company has five five-year predictions as to how technology will make our lives better within the next five years.
Norman Joseph Woodland, who died on Sunday at the age of 91, invented something that was used five billion times today alone. In fact, you probably have one (or lots) within arm's reach right now: the bar code.
Years ago IBM began its gradual shift from consumer-facing computer company to focusing more on research targeting "big ideas." Now one of those deep research areas has yielded fruit that could influence the next phase of general computing and it's called silicon nanophotonics.
Within the last few years, we've been treated to images of single molecules along with images of orbiting electrons. Today, IBM research has released a new image of a molecule, with enough detail that you can spot differences in the bonds between the individual atoms. Whoa.
