IBM 5 in 5: Detecting pollution at the speed of light
By Will Green, Silicon Integrated Nanophotonics manager and Norma Sosa, Systems and Technologies for Cognitive IoT manager, IBM Research.
Our team brings together a variety of disciplines including silicon photonics, spectroscopy, materials science and physical analytics to create new sensing technologies that can pinpoint and monitor the quality of our environment. Why? Because we believe that a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach is what’s necessary to help prevent pollution. And that’s also why we’re working with natural gas producers such as Southwestern Energy to explore the development of an intelligent methane monitoring system,and as part of the ARPA-E Methane Observation Networks with Innovative Technology to Obtain Reductions (MONITOR) program.
