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.
Grady Booch's IEEE Computer Society "On Computing" podcast was posted 3 April 2015. Grady "discusses how computing amplifies the actions of governments, but can also temper its behavior by enabling mechanisms for private communication as well as for open and transparent communication by the people of a nation. Similarly, governments can help focus the artifacts of computing to the health and happiness of its citizens, but temper it as well."
