Math inside IBM

Saturday, February 5, 2005 - 9:00am - 9:45am
EE/CS 3-180
In this talk I will discuss several IBM Research projects in which advanced
mathematics is used to dramatically improve IBM products and processes.
Examples include product design, manufacturing process design, and supply
chain operations. I will also discuss ways in which our ability to deploy
mathematics, by embedding the math in automated processes or tools, has
dramatically improved in the past 20 years.
