Doug Vining IBM looks to Watson for help

"IBM's vast research department is already a big part of the turnaround plan. Earlier this year the division was reorganized to ramp up efforts related to cognitive computing. The push began with the development of the original Watson, but has expanded to include other areas of software and hardware research aimed at helping machines provide useful insights from huge quantities of often-messy data. The research efforts are far-ranging, and include software that can suggest new recipes by analyzing thousands of ingredients and popular meals, and electronic components, known as neurosynaptic chips, that have features modeled on the workings of biological brains and are more efficient at processing sensory information."

Doug Vining IBMers facing the chop

The once-almighty tech firm IBM is looking to drastically cut their workforce. For me it's interesting that IBM is now being described as an Apple Partner. Perhaps the day when Apple considers IBM to be nothing more than their corporate consulting arm, as hinted at in this MindBullet, is not so far off!

Doug Vining Can Apple and Facebook fix IBM?

First IBM did a deal with Apple, now they're hooking up with Facebook. All of which proves that IBM is not on a path to irrelevance, but is determined to re-invent itself. And big data, cloud and AI are IBM's strengths in this new era of collaboration.
