If research in silicon chips were a sport, the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference would be its Olympics, and the Lewis Winner Award for Outstanding Paper the equivalent of the 100 meter gold medal. As announced during the plenary session of ISSCC 2018 today, IBM Research has won this coveted award for the 2017 conference […]

Meet the IBM Inventor Who Built his First Circuit at 8
National Inventors’ Day is a day to honor inventors and their genius. At the IBM Research Lab in Zurich, the list of inventors is long, but we were able to catch up with one of your newly appointed Master Inventors, Lukas Czornomaz, who talks about his career and some of the patents that were granted along […]
Let’s continue the conversation about the store of the tomorrow. Which we must be planning and implementing today.
About ten minutes away and down the hill is a retail site in the midst of transformation.
It’s at the intersection of two major high-traffic urban thoroughfares. Reasonable parking in front. With a tasty catchment area of hipster Millennials in nearby apartments and X- and boomer professionals in single-family dwellings.
At one time, it was the local—and successful—muffler and brakes automobile repair shop. Then shuttered. Then abandoned to graffiti and broken windows.
And now to be a combination laundromat, coffee shop, and performance area. All in one.
Seeing this come together got me thinking about the purpose of tomorrow’s store, and indeed, the opportunities for a retail brand to create profitable shopper affinity. The I-choose-this brand-without-thinking type of affinity that pays off in ever-higher shares…

Celebrating Abu Sebastian on National Inventors’ Day
In recognition of National Inventors’ Day, IBM researcher, Abu Sebastian, writes about his life as an inventor and his research on phase-change memory devices. Inventions come in different forms. Often, they are specific tricks or improvements that help us overcome a roadblock that presents itself when developing a specific product or prototype. But what really […]

There has been a lot written in the past several years about the possible death of the traditional data warehouse as we know it. Having been involved with the rise (and potential fall) of such systems for the majority of my professional career, I find it interesting to explore some of the factors, technologies, and changing business models that are driving this fundamental shift. But first, it helps to put it in context as it relates to my career experiences in the space.
I began my career at MCI (later MCI WorldCom, WorldCom, MCI Inc, and finally acquired by Verizon in the mid 2000’s) in the MCI small business group, where my team was in charge of building and maintaining a lead generation system to support several outbound call centers across the US, targeting small and medium size businesses with corporate calling plans. One very important part of our landscape was our data warehouse, which we named “ATLAS”, short for “Advanced Telemarketing and Lead Analysis System”. This…
Thanks to the ever-increasing digitalization, companies today seem to know nearly everything about their customers: Who they are, what they buy, how they drive their business. However, what is often missing is knowledge about where they are located, how they are connected, and how their locations possibly impact buying decisions and behavior.
The data needed for this – geospatial data – is all around us. Just think of weather reports, suggested routes on Google Maps, or geotagged posts on Facebook. Simply put, geospatial data is any data with a spatial identifier referring to a position on the earth. Check out this video for some use cases.
GIS + ERP = A Game Changer
To change the game, you need real-time analysis, reporting, forecasting, threat detection, and planning. To do this, geospatial…
Why is 2018 such an important year for 5G transformation? While some early adopters have been open about plans, investments, and trials, most of the work has been out of public view. Intel and our partners have been involved in many of the earliest 5G trials, and we have delivered new services in the current LTE, 4G environment that pave the way for 5G services. These early successes have amplified our excitement for what is here now, and what is just around the corner. Major communication service providers are ramping up significant 5G expansion in markets around the world, and it’s only the beginning.
Now is the time to show the world what is possible with 5G. From CES and Mobile World Congress to the NAB Show and beyond, we are proud to help our partners and customers leave significant 5G milestones in the dust. We’ve done this through new Intel solutions and pre-configured offerings with partners that accelerate digital transformation of the network, cloud, and client. I…
