    Scripps Scientist Visits Sierra Leone Hospital


    Date added: 2014-12-03


    Dr. Erica Ollmann Saphire of the Ollmann Saphire laboratory at The Scripps Research Institute, at the Kenema Government Hospital in Kenema, Sierra Leone. Dr. Saphire is leading citizen science project to crowdsource a virtual supercomputer on IBM's World Communiity Grid that will help her lab find a cure for the Ebola virus. Anyone with a computer or Android-based mobile device can now download a safe and free app from IBM's World Community Grid (www.worldcommuitygrid.org) that puts their computing devices to work when the machines would otherwise be idle. With their collective processing power, the computers will form a virtual supercomputer to help The Scripps Research Institute screen millions of chemical compounds to identify new drug leads for treating Ebola.

    Ebola Virus: Simple Structure but a Shape Shifter


    Date added: 2014-12-03


    Electron micrograph of the Ebola virus, captured in 1976. For the first time, anyone with a computer or Android-based mobile device can help scientists search for an Ebola cure. A safe and free app from IBM's World Community Grid (www.worldcommunitygrid.org) puts the devices to work when the machines would otherwise be idle. With their collective processing power, the computers will form a virtual supercomputer to help The Scripps Research Institute screen millions of chemical compounds to identify new drug leads for treating Ebola. An effective treatment has thus far proved elusive because of scant resources previously brought to bear, and because the a protein in the virus responsible for replicating itself adopts different shapes for different functions.

    New IBM Data Centric Systems for DOE


    Date added: 2014-11-14


    The U.S. Department of Energy has awarded IBM contracts valued at $325 million to develop and deliver the world’s most advanced “data centric” supercomputing systems at the Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories, helping them advance innovation and discovery in science, engineering and national defense. These OpenPOWER-based systems minimize data in motion and energy consumption, providing cost-effective modeling, simulation and Big Data analytics.

  • IBM Watson Invests into Pathway Genomics

    IBM Watson Invests into Pathway Genomics


    Date added: 2014-11-12


    IBM and Pathway Genomics are aiming to revolutionize the health and wellness industry by leveraging the natural language processing and cognitive capabilities of Watson. For the first time consumers will be able to ask the Pathway Panorama app questions to gain insights and options powered by the cognitive intellect of Watson, based on their own wellness-related genes, wearable data, and other related wellness information.
