A New Course of Treatment Housed in the Cloud

Changing the Course of Treatment

Nothing breaks down walls and brings people together like caring for a critically ill child. And IBM and Boston Children’s Hospital have teamed up on the world’s first Cloud-based global education technology platform to transform how pediatric medicine is taught and practiced around the world.

Developed in IBM labs in Cambridge, the new platform — called OPENPediatrics — is designed to give doctors and nurses the knowledge and skills they need during intensive care situations by way of an interactive, digital and social learning tool that will improve the exchange of medical knowledge on the care of critically ill children no matter where they live.

Big Data on the Farm

Analytics on the Farm

Fueling better farming is a practice known as precision agriculture, which uses extensive data from a farmer’s field and plan the planting, irrigation and harvesting of crops.  This sophisticated weather prediction technology from IBM Research, nicknamed Deep Thunder, is an example of a new generation of cutting-edge technologies that penetrate complexity by capturing and making sense of large quantities of data.
