IBM scientists research concentrated solar radiation power source

Researchers from IBM have created a very impressive and affordable new photovoltaic system that is capable of concentrating solar radiation up to 2000 times. The system is also capable of converting 80% of incoming solar radiation into useful energy. Other than simply creating solar electricity, the system also has two other very important capabilities.

IBM’s Watson heading to its first university

IBM’s Watson heading to its first university

IBM's infamous Watson supercomputer is making its way to the classroom after appearing on Jeopardy! a while back. IBM announced today that they'll be building another Watson supercomputer and will be giving it to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to be the first university to receive a Watson supercomputer. Other universities are planned to get one in the future.

IBM silicon nanophotonics speeds servers with 25Gbps light

IBM silicon nanophotonics speeds servers with 25Gbps light

IBM has developed a light-based data transfer system delivering more than 25Gbps per channel, opening the door to chip-dense slabs of processing power that could speed up server performance, the internet, and more. The company's research into silicon integrated nanophotonics addresses concerns that interconnects between increasingly powerful computers, such as mainframe servers, are unable to keep up with the speeds of the computers themselves. Instead of copper or even optical cables, IBM envisages on-chip optical routing, where light blasts data between dense, multi-layer computing hubs.

Apple named Most Innovative Company of 2012 by Booz & Co

Apple named Most Innovative Company of 2012 by Booz & Co

In their yearly list of most innovative companies in the world, the folks at analytical group Booz & Co. found with a survey of participants that Apple was the most innovative group - for the third year running. This year it appears that Apple made a substantial lead increase over either of its previous years in the lead, with a massive near-80-percent of respondents naming Apple as one of the most innovative companies in the world. This number is up from 70 percent of those questioned last year.

AT&T’s team up with IBM is exactly the jolt “the cloud” needs

AT&T’s team up with IBM is exactly the jolt “the cloud” needs

If you're hesitant to work with your data stored in this ephemeral location called "the cloud", you're not alone - but AT&T and IBM have announced a team-up today that'll send a shock through the market that'll have masses of users converting. When you've got a new technology - or any technology that people may be hesitant to use in general - your best bet in making people adopt it is to prove to them that it's reliable at the same time as it is either fun or helpful to use. To do that you need brand power and better yet, cross-brand power like AT&T and IBM are demonstrating this week.

IBM scientists first to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules using AFM

IBM scientists first to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules using AFM

IBM has announced that its scientists have been able to differentiate the chemical bonds in individual molecules for the first time via a technique called non-contact atomic force microscopy (AFM). The breakthrough has significant implications for the technology world. According to IBM, the breakthrough will help push the exploration of using molecules and atoms at a smaller scale and can be an important step for studying graphene devices.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 10, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 10, 2012

Welcome to Friday everyone. The weekend is here is last, and what better way to kick it off than with a giveaway? We've teamed up with NVIDIA to hand out three 16GB Google Nexus 7 tablets, so be sure to enter (but read the rules before you do!). Apple and Samsung's ongoing patent trial gave us a glimpse at sales numbers for both companies today, and we also found out that Apple is looking for a whopping $2.45 billion from Samsung. Even though Google has remained publicly silent about this whole suit, it turns out that it has been providing support for Samsung behind the scenes during the trial.
