About us

The Thomas J. Watson Research Center includes facilities in Yorktown Heights and Albany, New York as well as Cambridge, Massachusetts. It serves as the headquarters of IBM Research – one of the largest industrial research organizations in the world – with 12 labs on six continents. Scientists at T.J. Watson, and at IBM labs around the globe, are pioneering scientific breakthroughs across today’s most promising and disruptive technologies including the future of artificial intelligence, blockchain and quantum computing.

Our scientists collaborate across disciplines to address some of the world’s most complex problems and promising opportunities. We believe that profound breakthroughs come when businesses, governments, academic institutions and others work together to tap into diverse points of view and expertise. Collectively, we’re working to understand how systems are interconnected and the role technology plays within them.
