Advancing AI for industry and society
IBM Research has been exploring artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies and techniques for decades. We believe AI will transform the world in dramatic ways in the coming years – and we’re advancing the field through our portfolio of research focused on three areas: towards human-level intelligence, platform for business, and hardware and the physics of AI.
We’re also working to accelerate AI research through collaboration with like-minded institutions and individuals to push the boundaries of AI faster – for the benefit of industry and society.

Hardware Accelerators Based on Analog Memory Devices
Scientists at IBM Research - Almaden in San Jose, Calif. demonstrated for the first time analog computing with the same levels of accuracy as GPUs using the prototype system in the photo.
Project Debater: An AI system that can debate humans on complex topics
Project Debater digests massive texts, constructs a well-structured speech on a given topic, delivers it with clarity and purpose, and rebuts its opponent. Eventually, Project Debater will help people reason by providing compelling, evidence-based arguments and limiting the influence of emotion, bias, or ambiguity.
IBM Scientists Demonstrate In-memory Computing with 1 Million Devices for Applications in AI
IBM scientists have demonstrated that an unsupervised machine-learning algorithm, running on one million phase change memory (PCM) devices, successfully found temporal correlations in unknown data streams. When compared to state-of-the-art classical computers, this prototype technology is expected to yield 200x improvements in both speed and energy efficiency, making it highly suitable for enabling ultra-dense, low-power, and massively-parallel computing systems for applications in AI.
IBM scientists demonstrate 10x faster large-scale machine learning using GPUs
Together with EPFL scientists, our IBM Research team has developed a scheme for training big data sets quickly. It can process a 30 Gigabyte training dataset in less than one minute using a single graphics processing unit (GPU) — a 10× speedup over existing methods for limited memory training. The results, which efficiently utilize the full potential of the GPU, are being presented at the 2017 NIPS Conference in Long Beach, California.
