Guiding Eyes Turns to IBM Cloud to Improve Access and Analysis of Canine Data
IBM, March 24th, 2016

IBM announced that Guiding Eyes for the Blind, a non-profit organization dedicated to the breeding, raising, training and placement of service dogs with people who are blind or visually impaired, is adopting the IBM Cloud for better management and faster access to its increasing canine data.

Since its founding in 1954, Guiding Eyes has graduated more than 7,300 guide dogs. But perhaps the most famous is two year-old, 'Wrangler,' a yellow Labrador Retriever who gained notoriety over the past year as a regular on NBC's The Today Show....

Tuberculosis Study Launched, Powered By Citizen Scientists on IBM's World Community Grid
IBM, March 24th, 2016

IBM's World Community Grid and scientists at the University of Nottingham are launching a study to address tuberculosis, one of the world's most deadly diseases. It is expected that hundreds of thousands of volunteers will donate vast computing resources to aid this effort facilitated by IBM.

Launched today, the new 'Help Stop TB' project on IBM World Community Grid will model aspects of the behavior of tuberculosis bacteria to better understand its potential vulnerabilities that new medicines may one day exploit. Volunteers will make the processing power on their devices available, when otherwise not being used, to perform the millions of calculations necessary for these simulations. Crowdsourcing a virtual supercomputer in this manner to study the disease will provide results significantly faster and achieve greater results than relying on conventional computational resources typically available to researchers...
