The IBM Fellows program is a prestigious honor that has a direct correlation to the company's innovation and technology leadership. The honorees include a diverse group of IBMers with one thing in common: a commitment to tackling the world’s biggest problems with ingenuity, invention and inspiration. A common thread for many of this year’s inductees is their commitment to developing solutions and practical applications in the field of Big Data and Analytics. IBM is a leader in the space – with 1500 Big Data and Analytics-related patents in 2013 alone, and $24 billion in investments since 2005 through both acquisitions and R&D – and these fellows maintain the drumbeat of momentum that has made IBM number one in Big Data market share for the second year running.

Michael Haydock (IBM Distinguished Engineer, Partner, Chief Scientist - Business Analytics and Optimization) - From designing the most efficient way to butcher cattle stock, to creating an original dynamic pricing model for airline fares, to when in the planting cycle is the optimal time to spray weed killer on a soybean field, Mike has worked his magic with applied mathematical methods for a diverse set of clients across industries ranging from agriculture to aerospace. His brainchild—an analytics-based forecast of electronics and appliance sales in the United States—has become a staple of predicting holiday sales trends.

Transcript

  • 1. IBM Fellows Extraordinary Achievement by Exceptional Individuals
  • 2. In 1962, IBM CEO Thomas J. Watson, Jr. created the IBM Fellows program as a way to recognize the best and brightest at IBM for their continued innovation and creativity. An honor reserved for the “most exceptional” technical professionals, IBM Fellows are recognized for their past contributions as well as for their potential to continue driving breakthrough research and innovation.
  • 3. Resources Accelerated Discovery Lab Ecosystem Analytics Solution Centers Expertise 9K Consultants 30K Engagements 2,500 Academic Initiative 1,000Partnerships Business Partners The IBM Fellows are only one source of innovation for IBM’s Big Data and Analytics program. IBM is a leader in the space – with 1,500 Big Data and Analytics-related patents in 2013 alone, and $24 billion in investments since 2005 through both acquisitions and R&D – and these fellows maintain the drumbeat of momentum that has made IBM number one in Big Data market share for the second year running.

  • 5. In the half-century since the inaugural class, the 257 individuals inducted into the IBM Fellows program have been at the forefront of scientific thought and research. Among them, the Fellows program boasts a roster of five Nobel Prize winners, a Kyoto Prize Winner, and inventors of some of the most innovative IBM technologies, including the Scanning Tunneling Microscope, which is able to image surfaces at the atomic level and manipulate the individual atoms on them, and Watson, IBM’s groundbreaking cognitive computing system.
  • 6. This year, IBM inducted its largest class yet, bestowing the honor of IBM Fellow on 11 innovative leaders. A common thread for many of this year’s inductees is their commitment to developing solutions and practical applications in the field of Big Data and Analytics. Let’s examine these individuals and their contributions to the Big Data and Analytics space.
  • 7. Aleksandra “Saska” Mojsilovic Manager, Predictive Modeling and Optimization, Research Scientist - Electrical Engineering Saska’s work has been behind some of IBM’s most successful internal analytics projects, including a proactive retention program that helped reduce attrition of key skills in the growth markets. Recently, she has been leading a team in IBM Research creating an analytics model for a health insurer in the United States seeking to understand the likely utilization and cost impacts of new enrollments in the healthcare exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act.
  • 8. Shivakumar Vaithyanathan Senior Manager, Cognitive Computing Shivakumar’s team has worked with the University of Southern California's Annenberg Innovation Lab to reveal, via Twitter, how social sentiment analysis about Oscar-nominated films can change the way movie studios test new films. His same approach to analysis of the Super Bowl and back-to-school retail has led to the development of new products that deliver social media insights.
  • 9. Michael Haydock IBM Distinguished Engineer, Partner, Chief Scientist - Business Analytics and Optimization From designing the most efficient way to butcher cattle stock, to creating an original dynamic pricing model for airline fares, I have worked with applied mathematical methods for a diverse set of clients across industries ranging from agriculture to aerospace. One of my greatest successes—an analytics-based forecast of electronics and appliance sales in the United States—has become a staple of predicting holiday sales trends.
  • 10. The IBM Institute of Business Value’s (IBV) 2013 C-Suite Study found that 64% of CMOs are looking for deeper insights into their customers and IBM Big Data and Analytics are helping them achieve that goal. CMOs see three keys to success through analytics: better customer insights, better designed customer experiences, and greater use of technology.
  • 11. Under IBM’s new Technology Ambassador Initiative, the new Fellows will be highly visible in reinforcing IBM's commitment to technical distinction worldwide as each of them engages with an IBM economic growth market, serving as technology ambassadors in key regions. Each Fellow Ambassador will leverage their unique skills and expertise to ensure that IBM has a technical leadership role in their assigned country. By partnering with local universities and research institutions, and by mentoring employees, Fellow ambassadors with help maintain a two-way visibility between IBM leadership and local markets to foster technology education and innovation worldwide.
