  • FSS Storyline: <br /> IBM Research was founded 1945 in New York, with the express mission to be famous for science and to create a 10 year technology outlook to make sure that IBM would not be surprised by sudden shifts in technology. <br /> Since then we have spread around the globe into 9 labs and about 3000 Researchers worldwide. <br /> Over time we changed from this early academic ivory tower of science and we started to operate to a new credo “Being famous for science and vital to IBM”. First we worked with other IBM divisions directly on transferring our technology to products and services. In the 90s we started working with our customers, by applying our technology knowledge to help solve their business problems. Jointly we build prototypes and pilot them in their business. These “First Of A Kind” projects with our clients have lead to about 250 technology demonstrations being on our Industry Solution Lab’s show floor at any given time. <br /> Despite all these changes and additions to IBM Research’s role – we are still creating a yearly technology outlook – which is part of IBM’s overall strategy process in which we combine technology trends, business trends as well as social and large scale economic trends. <br /> -------------------------------------------------------------------- <br /> Research facts (now just a sticky editable in PowerPoint) <br /> Stick the following text into the advanced http://www.wordle.net/advanced to create the tag cloud <br /> IBM Research: 100:3333FF <br /> Innovation that Matters: 80:333366 <br /> $6B R&D Budget: 50:999933 <br /> 10 Labs around the World: 80:333333 <br /> Watson: 20:666666 <br /> Almaden: 20:666666 <br /> Austin: 20:666666 <br /> Zurich: 20:666666 <br /> Haifa: 20:666666 <br /> Delhi: 20:666666 <br /> Beijing: 20:666666 <br /> Tokyo:20:666666 <br /> Brasil:20:666666 <br /> 3000 Researchers: 75:66FF66 <br /> 5 Nobel Laureates: 60:33CC33 <br /> 6 Turing Awards: 55:339933 <br /> 18 years of Patent Leadership: 70:33FF33 <br /> -------------------------------------------------------------------- <br /> IBM Research Worldwide <br /> IBM researchers are united in our passion to make the world work better— dedicated to creating an impact for our clients and IBM, collaborating to change the way the world works, and discovering the answers to our greatest challenges. Along the way, we benefit from the talent and commitment of research engineers, scientists and technical professionals who rank among the very best in the world. We are Nobel Laureates, prolific inventors and recipients of the world’s highest honors in science and technology. Together, we are IBM Research—a team not only playing a leading role in improving the world today, but charting a smarter future in which we all can thrive. <br /> IBM&apos;s first research facility, the Watson Scientific Computing Laboratory, opened in a renovated fraternity house near Columbia University in Manhattan in 1945. In 1961, IBM moved its research headquarters to the Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York. The Watson Research Center is located in Westchester County, New York (both the Watson site and the Hawthorne site) and in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Considered "Research Headquarters," the Watson locations in New York conduct broad-ranging research in areas including Physical Science, Computer Science, Systems Technology, Semiconductors, Services Science and Business Analytics, while Cambridge is primarily known for its cutting-edge work in Collaborative User Experience and Visualization. <br /> IBM Research – Almaden was dedicated in 1986 and is our focal point for storage, database, and data-related research. Almaden is just a short ride from IBM&apos;s development labs in San Jose and Santa Teresa. <br /> IBM Research - Austin was launched in 1995 seeking to break new ground in the field of microprocessors - and demonstrate new kinds of interactivity between Research and IBM&apos;s development teams. Focus areas include: high performance/low power VLSI design and tools, power aware systems and exploratory architectures, and simulation tools modeling for IBM large systems. <br /> IBM Ressearch - Zurich, founded in 1956, has about 210 employees and is noted for its Nobel prizes in 2 areas: superconductivity and scanning tunneling microscopy. It is the focus for our research into communications technology. The token ring communications protocol was invented and developed here--an important innovation and the entree to expanding our business. More recently, Zurich is a center for our nanotechnology efforts. <br /> At IBM Research - Haifa; 25 percent of the technical staff have doctorate degrees in computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, or related fields. Employees are actively involved in teaching at Israeli higher education institutions and supervising post-graduate theses. Many employees have received IBM awards for achievements and excellence. Since it first opened as the IBM Scientific Center in 1972, the IBM Research Lab in Haifa (HRL) has conducted decades of research that has been vital to IBM’s success. R&D projects are being executed today by HRL for IBM labs in the USA, Canada, and Europe, in areas such as storage systems, verification technologies, multimedia, active management, information retrieval, programming environments, optimization technologies, and life sciences. “ <br /> IBM Research - Tokyo was established in 1982. Researchers at TRL are active in analytics and optimization, software engineering, middleware, system software, security and compliance, electronic and optical packaging technology, engineering and technology services, text mining and speech technology, and accessibility technology. <br /> IBM Research - China opened in Beijing in 1995. The event symbolized IBM&apos;s commitment to ushering in a new age of shared technology and partnership for the development of China. China has about 132 employees. CRL is located in Shangdi, in the northwest of Beijing. CRL has been growing steadily. Researchers at CRL are active in multi-modal interactions such as voice and visual, intelligent information management, pervasive computing, e-business technologies and Service computing. An additional research location in China was opened in Shanghai in 2008. <br /> IBM Research - India was established in 1998 in Delhi, India. Researchers in IRL work in the areas of distributed computing, software engineering, information management, pervasive computing, bio-infomatics, speech recognition for Indian languages and autonomic computing, among others. In 2005, an additional Research location was opened in Bengaluru. <br /> IBM Research - Brasil currently being established in 2010. Expected focus areas: Natural Resources, Events, Devices <br /> ----------------------------------------------------- <br /> Evolution of Role <br /> Our role has evolved to reach our goal and gives an indication of where we are headed. <br /> In the early days of Research, we were substantially inwardly focused; we tended to "mind the science" and assume that IBM&apos;s developers would pick up the best of our work. That mode of operation had its virtues when we were young -- for one thing, it made us very attractive for the best young scientists, some of whom are now among our senior executives. <br /> Nevertheless, we found that moving an idea or even a prototype from "research" to development was not simple, and we eventually agreed with the developers to put in place "joint projects". These are programs in which a substantial part of the work force is researchers working in research sites, but funded by a product group. Working with them are other researchers, funded out of our base budget, and -- most important -- developers, in their own sites. Thus, by establishing links early in the programs, and by starting with a shared vision and a shared agenda, we have been able to greatly smooth the transfer of ideas into development. <br /> In the 90s we began a journey we are still on today, of looking outside of IBM to our customers and the world. This journey has been motivated by two important facts: 1) IBM’s customers need and deserve access to the best innovative thinking around, and 2) By working with our customers we expand and challenge our own thinking and can focus on research that matters. We supported this work with initiatives like our First-of-a-Kind program through which S&D and Research sponsor collaborations with our customers to work on cutting edge solutions. <br /> Over the next ten years, we continued this journey and taking advantage of the company’s transformation, we increasingly focused on Services. With this came the introduction of IBM Research Services (formerly called On Demand Innovation Services) – where we work with our services brands (Global Technology Services – GTS and Global Business Services – GBS) on client engagements. This both expands our engagement with customers AND improves our understanding of what is needed to deliver services and products. This insight helps us improve the assets we deliver to our brands, making them easier to use, more standard and user friendly. It is also during this period that we have seen the creation of our newest Strategy Area in Research – Research Services. <br /> More recently, we are expanding our view still more, with the idea of developing joint-program-like activities with customers. Collaborative partnerships with customers, universities and governments. <br /> And, throughout this journey, we have continued to work with leaders in our fields of science from academia and governments and our scientific communities and standards organizations. <br /> CAPTION: the foil shows the progress over time from an organization that worked mainly with colleagues in the world of science and technology to one that also worked with other IBM units, to one that works, with customers, and today, lead our customers as well. <br /> First of a Kind: Once IBM Research feels a technology has reached a level where practical benefit can be achieved, it partners with a leading-edge client that is prepared to try the technology in a real-world situation. One early example of a highly successful "first of a kind" project was IBM&apos;s teaming with New York’s Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The project resulted in MedSpeak, a specialized speech recognition application for radiologists, whose distinct technical vocabulary made recognition easier. As the technology improved, IBM expanded into legal dictation and then general products, establishing its ViaVoice line as a leader in the speech recognition marketplace. <br /> EBO (Emerging Business Opportunities): <br /> speaker notes updated 2010-11-29 /jvk <br />

  • This SIG is in its infancy compared with the education sig. <br /> The futures sig is focused on aiding service innovators to both understand possible futures as well as create that future environment and understand how to get their organizations to embrace it. <br /> We have initiated monthly meetings and each month it starts with one of the SIG members presenting information they feel will be relevant to the attendees. For example in January I presented on the scarcity of attention and the role of technology in maximizing value generation of this scarce resource. <br /> Some of the objectives we have planned for the future are a white paper about assessing innovation adoption, with the goal of understanding the capabilities of an organizations and techniques that can be used to help. <br /> Since gamification is an area I’ve done quite a bit of work, we’d also like to have a gamification orientation session, to expose service innovators to its role and use. <br /> We hope to have 15 members in the organization by the end of May at the latest and continue to reach out to Service Futurists. <br />
  • I’d like to spend a few minutes of the boards time to mention an area of concern for the futures SIG in particular and all the SIGs in general. <br /> We need to more effectively get the word out about the activities underway and empower the ISSIP members (or the marketplace as a whole) to get more involved in the SIGs. We need to have defined plans and targets for media tools and communications. <br /> We also need to cross pollinate more effectively between the SIGs. All the SIGS have a future element to them, but I don’t know how to incorporate their efforts into the Future’s SIG (or vice versa). <br /> Finally we need to identify deliverables that can effectively hook participation into ISSIP itself. The SIGs are a primary driver of membership but I am not sure of how to proceed at this time in a coordinated way that doesn’t appear to be out-of-sync with the rest of ISSIP. <br /> I am asking the board for some assistance in addressing these areas. <br />
