We know it takes a lot of effort, determination, and resources to bring an idea to fruition, and transform your hard work into an enterprise even!

At IBM, re-inventing ourselves is a way of life, and we have a lot to be excited about with what lies ahead this year in technology. Fast forward 5 years from now, take a look at some of the new research highlighting five innovations that we think will help change lives in our near future.

When you think of IBM, you often look back at its long arc in technical history over the past 100+ years and see it creating amazing technologies. And you know what? That hasn’t changed at all even now in 2017. IBM is projected to register over 7,000 U.S. patents in 2016, leading all companies for the 24th straight year. And while all that cool technology that IBMers create is often used to help large companies become more efficient and serve their customers more effectively, that same innovation is just as often used by smaller start-ups to launch the next killer app or build break-through cloud software and services.

Though it is easy to make predictions about what may lie ahead with research, it is up to our clients to be the real change makers and lead the way.

As we start 2017, and as you may start your entrepreneurship journey with us, we want to share some of our clients’ successes to keep you inspired. A few months ago, IBM selected several promising startups from our IBM’s Global Entrepreneur program and sent them to San Francisco to attend the LAUNCH Scale event, to hear from and take part in deep-dive business sessions with the world’s greatest investors, founders, and growth experts on how to successfully grow and scale startups.

Take a look! They range from cognitive environmental services to AI-driven software development to a chatbot powered by IBM Watson APIs. It’s all very real examples of how IBM can help you and your organization, big or small, take its next step into the cognitive era.
