[BCN News] IBM partners with Aberdeen University to bring Watson to medical research

IBM2[BCN news March 18, 2016 Written by Jamie Davies] The University of Aberdeen has recently announced a partnership with IBM, which will allow students and staff to utilise Watson Engagement Advisor.

IBM scientists are collaborating with researchers at the university on the EU Marie Curie K-Drive project, an initiative which explores a number of different use cases for big data and knowledge graphs, including the treatment of cancer. The results of the project will also form the foundation of any proposals put forward by the university for the EU Horizon 2020 Programme.

Cognitive represents an entirely new model of computing that includes a range of technology innovations in analytics, natural language processing and machine learning,” said Paul Fryer, Academic Initiative Leader at IBM. “The collaboration between IBM and the University of Aberdeen, which builds on a long-standing relationship, aims to help nurture the next generation of innovators; and is the first initiative of this type in Scotland.

The university is now one of four in the UK to have access to the Watson Engagement Advisor, which will be used by students and staff to forward their cognitive computing research.

The partnership with IBM is an exciting opportunity to advance our research in this area,” said Dr Jeff Z. Pan, coordinator of the K-Drive project at the university. “Cognitive computing is empowering human decision-making processes by understanding and exploiting data which is structured and unstructured, and our research is focused on how to make the best use of both types of data.”

Watson’s marketing messaging has primarily focused around the commercialization of artificial intelligence and big data. The partnership with the University of Aberdeen and the K-Drive project builds on IBM’s efforts to demonstrate the real-world viability. Over recent weeks, IBM has announced a number of collaborations to utilize the Watson proposition, including with Mastercard and the Honda Formula One team.

IBM and Honda announced that Watson technology would be incorporated into the McLaren Honda Formula One cars and pits to improve performance and racing decisions in real-time. The sensors will collect data from a number of different sources including driver timing, fuel flow rates and engine performance. The partnership is in reaction to new regulations that required all Formula One cars to use hybrid engines and limited fuel consumption during races.

With the rapid growth of the Internet of Things, by 2025, every car will be connected in some way exuding vast amounts of streaming data ranging from traffic updates to health of the vehicle, operations and more,” said Harriet Green, GM for Watson IoT at IBM. “We are excited to team with Honda to provide sophisticated cognitive IoT capabilities and analytics to combine data directly from the F1 racing vehicles with other sources, allowing Honda to not only enhance its vehicles that are built for speed, but to also be more friendly to our environment.


iSOCO/ESI is doing secondments in Aberdeen

Dr. Jose from iSOCO/ESI is visiting the University of Aberdeen, for his secondment starting from 4 Oct , 2015.

During this period, Jose will focus on collaboration with the researchers in the University of Aberdeen on Work-Package 9: The Guidance, in which we will  further extend the intelligent UI. He will also involve in the revision of the K-drive book and discussion on a proposal for FTI H2020.

Welcome new IBMers on board !

Starting from this September, three new IBMers: Alessandra Coletti, Emanuela Valle, and Marco Senatore have joined the project, and become new K-Drivers. Their will contribute to the Work Packages 8, learn semantic technologies and develop new skills, and also set up new cooperation with other colleagues in this project.

Alessandra Coletti has gained her Master degree in Mathematics in 2012 from the “Università degli Studi” of Pavia, and Master degree in Pianoforte in 2010 from the “Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali Franco Vittadini” of Pavia. Now she is a Data Scientist in IBM Italy, and currently works as a consultant in Customer & Social Analytics projects.

Emanuela Valle has gained a Master degree in Mathematics in 2011 from the Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata” , and a Master Degree in Mathematical Finance in 2012 from the Università degli Studi di Bologna “Alma Mater”. Now she is a consultant in IBM Italia and she is working as a Data Scientist in Customer and Social Analytics projects.

Marco Senatore has gained his PhD degree in Operations Research from the University of Rome “LA SAPIENZA” in 2013, majored in Routing Mechanisms for unreliable networks. He had been working at the IBM Zurich Research Laboratory between 2011 to 2012. Now he is a consultant at the IBM GLOBAL BUSINESS SERVICES in Rome.
