CH Open und IBM laden ein:
Am Donnerstag, 10. Dezember 2020 von 11.00 bis 12.00 Uhr zur
Online-Präsentation (in Englisch) über die Open Standards und Open Source bei IBM und anschliessender Fragerunde.
About the talk:
IBM is not only the company with the highest number of patents filed in the US since the last 27 years, it is also extremely active in making its portfolio freely accessible, for instance in the most recent Open COVID Pledge. Open source is also in the DNA of IBM. Long before the 2019 acquisition of Red Hat, a global leader in open source technology, IBM helped establish The Linux Foundation, The Apache Software Foundation and Eclipse Foundation. This underlines the strong open innovation focus at IBM, which I’ll cover in this talk by reviewing key aspects of successful and dependable open source communities, as well as critical considerations for embracing open source, based on our collective experience. I’ll illustrate with examples stemming from the IBM Research community, such as the open-source Qiskit quantum computing framework, and the brand new IBM Analog Hardware Acceleration Kit, a python toolkit for exploring and using the capabilities of in-memory computing devices in the context of artificial intelligence.
