Research & Development in 2020

Dr. Matthias Kaiserswerth
Vice President, Europe; IBM Research

We are at the dawn of a historic shift in the evolution of technology. Never have several technological trends, namely mobile, cloud, big data and social, converged simultaneously in the history of computing. The ramifications will span from how we do research and development to how we make business decisions. This keynote presents IBM Research as an early adopter of these trends as we look towards leading IBM into its second centennial:
• Computational Science will no longer support or mainly validate experimental R&D. It has reached a performance and maturity that allows it to guide experimental work. In the coming decade, future progress in high performance computing will enable companies to start from the laws of nature and attack research problems that would not otherwise be solvable in realistic and economic time frames.
• By 2020 approximately 60% of the workforce will be comprised of Millennials, the digital natives. How can social and mobile technologies advance and revitalize the R&D function to leverage the power of the crowd and cater to the needs of this next generation of technical talent?
• Data is the future — and will be among the top three differentiators for R&D. New cognitive computing tools, including IBM Watson, which are designed to extract value from big data and analytics, hold significant potential in the innovation process.

  3. 3. Rüschlikon Dialogue Simulating a New Material to Replace Silicon 600 atoms, 5,000 electrons simulated across 50 different models of a material known as hafnium silicates. ! Only now—thanks to the evolution of algorithms and their mapping to such an extremely scalable and balanced architecture—are scientists able to create realistic models with several thousands of particles, starting only from the laws of nature. !3 © 2014 IBM Corporation
  4. 4. Rüschlikon Dialogue Simulating a New Material to Replace Lithium-Cadmium and Lithium-Ion (Battery 500 Project) At the ab initio level simulated a realistic lithium/air (Li2O2) battery electrolyte, consisting of 44 propylene carbonate molecules 
 Discovered that Li2O2 forms a tight-contact ion pair, with an extremely strong electrostatic interaction between lithium and oxygen 
 Findings support the possibility that in lithium/air cells, oxygen may still be reduced to peroxide, with the formation of solid Li2O2 making it a plausible candidate !4 © 2014 IBM Corporation

Industrial Methodology for Process Verification of Research or SBV IMPROVER is a new peer review scheme for quality assurance in systems biology research ! Based on the concept of crowd sourcing, which uses the Internet and the scientific community at-large to assess the quality of analysis and predictions of systems biology data ! !9 ! © 2014 IBM Corporation

Using Watson’s cognitive intelligence it will save researchers the time needed to pore though millions of articles, journals and studies to pinpoint connections within the data that can strengthen and accelerate their work. ! ! ! !11 ! © 2014 IBM Corporation
  12. 12. Rüschlikon Dialogue What would you ask Watson? Where should we put our R&D budget in 2020? Why should we consider making solar panels from perovskite crystals? What can we do with trigonelline alkaloids to improve the aroma of coffee? !12 © 2014 IBM Corporation

  14. 14. Rüschlikon Dialogue Computational Creativity As part of its quest to develop cognitive systems, IBM Research is exploring whether a computer can be creative by designing a machine that can create surprising yet flavorful recipe ideas no cookbook has ever thought of in order to enhance human creativity. French Champagne Punch ! 48 g apple juice 13 g acacia honey 0.1 g ground ginger 20 g orange juice 20 g cognac 1 dash (0.7 g) lemon juice 50 g champagne 2 raspberries (about 8 g) 1 cube McIntosh apple (about 4 g) ! ! ! !14 © 2014 IBM Corporation
