The Frontiers of IT

IBM Research envisions a future in which advances in technology will create a new class of systems that will go beyond capacity, speed, and complex analytics, and begin to augment human intelligence, with people as an integral and central part of the system.

On October 21, industry experts will gather at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center to explain, debate, and discuss nanotechnology, exascale processing, big data and analytics, and learning systems – or simply put, the “Frontiers of IT.”

Dario Gil, the program director of Energy Technology and Strategy at IBM Research, talks about these frontiers, and what he’s looking forward to at the event.
