IBM Research explores cognitive computing technology to help recognize skin cancer
Date added: 2014-12-17
As part of a collaborative effort with Memorial Sloan Kettering, IBM is researching the application of cognitive computing to analyze dermatological images of skin lesions with the goal of assisting clinicians in the identification of various cancerous disease states. The technology, which learns by identifying specific patterns in medical images, has the potential to increase the number of cases detected and help clinicians make earlier diagnoses.

P-TECH Playbook Enables Communities to Close STEM Skills Gap
Date added: 2014-11-14
In response to student deficits in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the IBM-inspired P-TECH school paradigm has grown quickly. These schools blend high school, college and career. IBM’s online playbook (www.ptech.com) can help guide the further establishment of public-private partnerships to create even more P-TECH schools. Begun with one P-TECH school in Brooklyn, NY in 2011, the model could grow to an estimated 100 schools by 2016.
