IBM 5 in 5: Macroscopes will help us understand Earth's complexity in infinite detail
By Hendrik Hamann, Research Manager for Physical Analytics, IBM Research
I am part of a team of research scientists at IBM that study and explore the intersection of big data with physics; a field that is known as physical analytics. My team’s expertise in physical models, machine-learning, sensors, data curation and big data technologies has been put to use in applications dealing with renewable energy, precision agriculture, and energy management. We are now leading the company’s research in the quickly developing area of the Internet of Things (IoT), an extension of the classical internet of computers to any physical object.
