Developing electronics beyond
Moore`s law requires revolutionary vision in novel devices, disruptive
technologies, new materials and alternative computer architectures. IBM has a
long tradition in transforming fundamental research and discoveries into
products, ranging from atomic manipulation, nanoscale devices up to large scale
computing. For example, the integration of III-V compound semiconductors and
SiGe in today`s Si CMOS technology is the next disruption after the advent of
high-k metal gates. But more important is the change in IT paradigm with the
recent advances in cognitive computing with neuromorphic devices mimicking the
brain and quantum computing relying on quantum mechanical effects. I shall
present some of the recent developments within the Science & Technology
department in a company which is moving fast towards big data analytics and
cloud based solutions.
