IBM has invested an undisclosed sum in Fluid, an e-commerce and omnichannel shopping company, to create a Watson-powered personal shopping app prototype for The North Face.
The collaboration, one of many IBM is planning to widen cognitive computing's footprint, will be the first Watson implementation for genomic research.
IBM has outlined a prototype optical chipset called Holey Optochip, which can transfer one terabit of information a second. That throughput, assuming the chip eventually scales, could provide a bandwidth boost that alters the supercomputing and datacentre landscape.
People can quickly load a secure cloud-based Windows or Linux operating system onto client computers via a USB device, thanks to prototype technology developed by IBM
Big Blue unveils memory chip technology which can store information as magnetic patterns on tiny wires, giving faster data access speeds than hard drives, flash disks, according to report.
The company has unveiled two prototype chips that can mimic functionality of the human brain, in what IBM calls a 'critical shift' away from traditional computing architecture
To be honest, the Green500 list of the world's greenest supercomputers can sometimes be sort of boring, because IBM is so dominant.The company actually was behind six of the top 10 computers on the latest edition; a prototype of its next-generation Blue Gene/Q supercomputer wound up on top.
At the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, Jeff Pierce, manager of Mobile Computer Research at IBM, shows off the company's prototype mobile e-mail client. He also compares different usage patterns for how people use e-mail from their mobile devices and desktops.
IBM Labs is taking water cooling to another level--and pumping water into each layer of a semiconductor via pipes as thin as a human hair.On Thursday, IBM said that its researchers--along with Fraunhofer Institute in Berlin--demonstrated a prototype that integrates a water cooling system direction into 3-D semiconductors.
IBM Research says it will demonstrate a new prototype optical transceiver chipset that "is fast enough to reduce the download time for a typical high definition feature-length film to a single second compared to 30 minutes or more over the best available connectivity today." That's saying something.
Never one to miss a trend, IBM unveiled a new mashup prototype, based on Web 2.0 technologies, designed for enterprise computing. IBM's so-called 'Enterprise Mashup' is a framework that uses Web services and wiki technology.
Jim Santoro, a program manager at IBM, shows CNET News.com reporter Michael Singer Big Blue's prototype for home 3D using Texas Instruments' DLP system. Santoro's especially excited about what this could mean for sports fans.
A former pilot has turned an IBM prototype into a working product that could help millions
The companies show off a 16-megabit "MRAM" chip. The technology is being touted as the next wave in computer memory.
The two ThinkPad notebook PCs are designed to highlight how laptops could be more comfortable for everyday use.
IBM and Citizen Watch show off a prototype of their jointly developed WatchPad, a Linux wristwatch computer that packs pager, calendar and Bluetooth features--and tells the time.
IBM has a prototype LCD that may be the future for flat-panel displays. The prototype is based on Roentgen technology offering a new class of resolution categorized as quad SXGA (super extended graphics array).
