60 IBMer’s preparing for BTYSTE 2012 December 14, 2011

Posted by Kristina O'Regan in IBM, Innovation, Intelligence, Watson.

IBM in Ireland are gearing up for BTYSE 2012 with 60 IBM volunteers ready to meet visitors at our stand.  The theme of our stand is “The Evolution of Technology.”

We are celebrating 100 years of innovation! IBM is constantly challenging itself to do what many think is impossible. This vision is leading our engineers and scientists to invent many of the building blocks of modern business and Information Technology. IBM has created 100 Icons of Progress which you can read about on our Centennial portal.  IBMer’s have also marked our centennial through a “Celebration of Service” by volunteering and giving back to their communities around the globe.

Visit us at Stand 26B and see how technology is evolving from those early innovations to ‘Watson’ – a scientific breakthrough in solving ‘natural language’ questions and winner of the Jeopardy! a U.S. quiz show.

IBM today is using this technology to make our world work smarter, by connecting the systems that run our world, and analysing the data from those systems, we have new ways of looking at information and can make smarter decisions as a result in healthcare, education and much more.

To find out more about IBM technology, create a QR code, develop a character using ‘Scratch’ , see RFID in action or to pit your wits against Watson visit on us Stand 26B.
