World’s First Intelligent Audio Masking System is developed at IBM’s India Research Laboratory (IRL) which will automatically detect and masks sensitive information in audio recordings.
The technology is expected to be useful for call center operations which record conversations between call center staff and customers for a number of reasons, including monitoring of service quality.
Intel and IBM have joined the team of technology companies making alternative-energy projects, announcing separate efforts to produce their own solar cells.
Intel said it has spun off a new company called SpectraWatt to make photovoltaic cells for solar modules. The company will be based in Oregon, US and will make 60 megawatts worth of solar cells a year.
IBM scientists have created specialized math algorithms to help model and manage natural disasters: wildfires, floods, diseases and more.
IBM’s “stochastic optimization model” was developed by IBM math scientists from IBM Research Labs in New York and India working with business experts from IBM’s Global Business Services and directly with clients to arm government bodies, relief agencies and companies with tools for strategic planning for more effective allocation of resources for natural disaster management and mitigation.
