Advancing the Scientific Frontiers of Cognitive Systems

Cognitive systems learn from vast amounts of complex, ambiguous information and help us do amazing things, such as treat disease, manage finances, and transform commerce. Underneath these systems, the core fields of science & technology -from artificial intelligence to brain science to computer architecture to cognitive science- are advancing rapidly and achieving breakthroughs not envisioned even a few years ago. IBM Research and its network of scientific partners are pursuing some of the hardest technical problems while creating practical solutions that make a difference to the world.
