The U. S. Department of Defense's research branch is reportedly working with tech giant IBM on developing self-destructive smart devices.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has awarded a $3.4 million contract to IBM for its "Vanishing Programmable Resources" program. Under the terms of the contract, which was awarded to the tech giant on January 31, IBM will be responsible for developing electronics that would self-destruct within seconds on receiving a command for the same.
Technology giant IBM on Monday announced the launch of a new appliance that can manage data from a great number of mobile devices and sensors.
Designed keeping the auto, traffic management, healthcare, home appliance, oil & gas industries in mind, the IBM MessageSight appliance is based on the MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) technology.
New York-based tech giant IBM on Monday released its annual list of five predictions of developments that it believes will come true in the five years to come.
The “IBM 5 in 5” predicts that a time will come when there will be no need to protect an email or ATMs with a password as machines will rely on a users’ personal biometric information to provide access only to the right person.
IBM claims to have developed a microprocessor, which is an imitation of the human brain. The new device is capable of storing new information by itself in the same way like a human brain does.
The developers of the device believe that with this development the technology will be able to learn about things. The leader of the project Dharmendra Modha, of IBM, revealed that they were trying to create a device, which possessed the features of the human mind like emotions, awareness about things, sensation and cognition.
Today Wireless communications has stepped forward and made the announcement that researchers have created a functional integrated circuit. The size of circuit is smaller than a grain of salt.
Yu-Ming Lin, an IBM researcher who has helped in leading the circuit has said that the circuit is a broadband frequency mixer.
The newest mixer comes in the list of the most fundamental and important circuits. It is specially known for wireless communication devices and equipment.
As per the CEO of research firm, Forrester, George Colony Apple will soon be able to overtake IBM and HP. And this has been able to happen because of its robust growth.
While talking to Bloomber, he said that Apple is going to be bigger that IBM next year and the year later they will surpass HP too.
George also predicted that eventually Apple is going to be able to earn close to $200 billion as revenue and its post sales growth will be rising by 50 per cent in the next 2 years time. This kind of demand will be fueled by that for iPad.
British chipmaker ARM has signed a deal with IBM to extending their partnership on next generation semiconductor technologies.
ARM and IBM have been cooperating with each other since 2008 on a variety of 32nm and 48nm processors. The recent deal will allow them to continue their alliance in the field of 14nm chip manufacturing.
The latest deal will help the duo to produce smaller as well as faster chips that will not consume much power. Smaller and faster chips are in high demand for the next generation of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.
Technology giant International Business Machines' (IBM) supercomputer "Watson" on Thursday defeated the top two all-time champions of the popular quiz show Jeopardy in a practice round, triggering debate if artificial intelligence is greater than the human intelligence.
Watson's victory brought a great sigh of relief for IBM researchers, who have been making hard efforts to create computers that can efficiently imitate human intelligence.
People will be able to view 3-D images of persons calling them from their smartphones within next five years, technology firm IBM predicted.
According to the IBM’s annual “Next Five in Five” list of innovations, future technology will allow engineers to fit 3-D and holographic cameras into smartphones that will allow users to video chat with 3-D holograms of their friends and relatives in real time.
The potential technology is expected to prove very beneficial to demonstrate a medical procedure or to exhibit mechanical repair jobs.
IBM has launched a cloud computing lab in Britain, with an intention to let its business partners reap the benefits of the emerging cloud revolution.
The new facility, which is situated in the Hursley IBM Innovation Center, is accessible from any of company’s thirty-eight innovation centers across the world. It will help IBM’s business partners acquire the sales and marketing skills that are essential to take advantage of the up-and-coming technology.
One of the leading technology companies of the world, IBM Corp., announced on Thursday that it would establish a Research & Development (R&D) facility at the University of Melbourne.
The new R&D department will help tackle international issues like that of managing natural disasters, harnessing the power of biotechnology, fighting diseases, using natural resources efficiently, and boosting agricultural yields.
The increasing data has grown concerns for data management, EMC has come up with a data warehouse appliance aimed to serve lots of data at once.
The Greenplum Data Computing Appliance offers an MPP (massively parallel processing) technology developed by Greenplum, a firm acquired by EMC in July.
EMC states that the appliance can easily take in data double the speed of competition products, which EMC recognized it to be Oracle Exadata, IBM Netezza and Teradata's enterprise data warehouse offering.
For instance a single rack can ingest 10 terabytes per hour, the company claims.
Technology giant IBM has struck a deal with the Australian government to open a global Research & Development lab at the University of Melbourne.
A joint federal and Victorian government statement revealed that the upcoming facility, which will employ around 150 researchers in the next five years, will try to find solutions for diverse issues, including harnessing the power of biotechnology, fighting diseases, boosting agricultural yields, using natural resources efficiently and managing natural disasters.
Technology giant IBM has unveiled innovative new chip-making technology for power management semiconductors.
The new technology, dubbed CMOS-7HV, will let the integration of wireless communications into a single power-management chip, which will slash production costs.
The company claims that the CMOS-7HV will help hack production costs by up to 20 per cent by efficiently bringing the power of three chips into one.
