In 1961, IBM moved from its humble beginnings in a renovated fraternity house near Columbia University to the T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, New York.
The better researchers understand fundamental physical properties and materials, the better the chance they'll find tomorrow's technology applications. IBM is doing research related to life sciences, and exploring physics at the boundary with computer science, trying to better understand network dynamics and improve pattern recognition. Among the many projects, researchers are providing technical leadership for the recently announced Low Frequency Array (LOFAR) project with the Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy.
Mathematical science researchers focus on a broad range of theoretical and applied topics, work with IBM and its clients to find new ways that mathematical sciences can solve problems, and work with other parts of IBM to effectively deliver these solutions. Mathematical Science affects all areas of information technology — hardware, software, systems and applications — and among this team's contributions are the development of more efficient arithmetic calculations on chips, the invention of the TrackPoint for the ThinkPad, and the creation of sophisticated systems for the evaluation and management of risk.
