IBM computer scientists have been at the forefront of scientific and technological innovation across a broad range of research areas. They have made pioneering contributions in artificial intelligence, high-speed processor design, computer architecture, natural language processing, programming languages, optimizing compilers, operating systems, storage systems, computer-supported cooperative work, databases, speech recognition, integer programming, and service-oriented architectures, to name a few.
Peter Hofstee, IBM Research - Austin, has recently keynoted two major conferences: The 32nd IEEE International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD 2014) in Seoul, Korea and the 12th IEEE International Symposium on Parallel and Distributed Processing with Applications (ISPA 2014) in Milan, Italy. Peter's keynote at ICCD 2014 was titled "Exploring models of computation and the consequences for systems for Big Data". His keynote at ISPA 2014 was titled "Dealing with a World of Data: A Systems Perspective".
Also keynoting ISPA 2014 was Fabrizio Petrini, IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center, speaking on "Real-time Graph Exploration on Large-scale Distributed Memory Machines".
