I visited IBM's Almaden Research Center (where the hard drive was invented) to see what the researchers there were working on. I met James Kaufman, who is a physicist who is creating an interoperable healthcare information system. It's quite remarkable and, if fully implemented, will let doctors and researchers predict where the next pandemic will happen.
This video is mind blowing. Well, for Dharmendra S. Modha, manager of cognitive computing at the IBM Almaden Research Center, his job is mind developing. Er, coming up with a computing brain that mimics our own. This is a HUGE challenge and he talks about all the people and organizations that IBM is working with to make this happen.
