IBM’s machine learning tech could predict Alzheimer’s risk in individuals

Brain Awareness Week, which occurs every March, is a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. And today, a research paper has been published that discusses how a set of proteins in the blood might possibly give an indication of later-to-come Alzheimer’s disease in an individual. In a […]

IBM artificial intelligence loses against debate champion

With the boom of artificial intelligence, numerous arguments and theories about how machines will come to replace humans have arisen. However, several companies developing artificial intelligence projects have insisted on putting their machines to compete against humans, and although they have sometimes won the game, there have also been cases in which they have been defeated by […]

IBM develops new tech to help solve Power Outage problems

IBM has reportedly developed a new technology with which it could predict and monitor when and where trees and vegetation threaten power transmission lines and blackouts, which may help reduce it, the company said on Wednesday. The IBM system uses data collected by satellites, drones, flights, sensors, and weather behavior models to help companies monitor […]

IBM researchers create fingernail sensor prototype to alert clinicians of health concerns

Researchers from IBM described a wearable system that unveiled today; a fingernail sensor prototype that is designed to measure how far your fingernails bend and move throughout the day. It is a small sensor prototype that sits on a person’s fingernail to help monitor the effectiveness of drugs used to combat the symptoms of Parkinson’s and other […]

IBM introduces Spectrum AI with NVIDIA DGX for development on AI
