The two weeks long legal battle between International Business Machines Corp (IBM.N) and e-commerce firm Groupon Inc (GRPN.O) has finally drawn to a closure with the former emerging victorious. IBM secured $83 million, as a U.S. jury in Delaware had on Friday awarded to the tech giant as damages in the legal dispute for patent rights against the e-commerce company Groupon Inc (GRPN.O). IBM had claimed $167 million as damages. The jury concluded that Groupon had willfully infringed on IBM’s e-commerce technology patent rights, as...
A Press Release by IBM states that it has created the world’s smallest magnet. It has been done using a single atom and stored one bit of data on it. At present, the hard-disk drives use around 1,00,000 atoms to store a single bit of data. This new research helps to read and write one-bit data on one atom. It creates possibilities for developing denser storage devices that are significantly small. For example, such devices may enable the storage of almost 35 million songs on a credit card sized device. IBM’s Research on Single Atom...
CVS Health and IBM have come together to use IBM Watson’s predictive analytics and cognitive computing to stop patients suffering from a chronic illness from having a medical emergency in the future. The supercomputer will use powerful algorithms and analyze data from medical health records, fitness devices, drug prescriptions, and other things to warn health officials of potential problems before it gets to that point. Under this partnership between the two companies, they’ll develop a platform that CVS Health will use internally to...
IBM Research announced the most powerful chip ever created - the world’s first fully-functional 7 nanometer chip, with roughly four times the capacity of today’s most powerful chips. Relatively, competitors like Intel have been struggling for years to shrink their consumer chips down below 14-nanometers. The world’s largest semiconductor chip maker is making Herculean efforts to commercialize 10-nanometer chips. The research advance was made using silicon-germanium instead of pure silicon in major regions of the molecular-si...
