IBM Research is the innovation engine of IBM. Nearly every game-changing breakthrough in the information technology industry has its roots in an IBM Research lab. And we’re primed to define the future of technology for many years to come.
IBM Research has been a home for creative scientific minds since 1945, when Thomas J. Watson Sr. established the first corporate pure science research lab in the U.S . From helping the Apollo space missions land on the moon to the discovery of fractals; from the technology behind laser eye surgery to Watson, the first cognitive computing system now being applied to health care and many other industries, IBM Research shapes the future of technology.
Since our earliest days, we have valued and supported diversity and inclusion for its ability to enhance the quality and effectiveness of teams. Diversity -- of background, culture, gender, experience, expression and beyond -- is deeply rooted in our corporate character and our success.
