IBM Launches Accelerated Discovery Lab for Big Data Apps

IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, CaliforniaColossal data volumes and confidential business information are stored in massive data centers all across the globe. The Technology Giant, IBM Research has developed a new and one-of-its-kind lab. It has been named the ADL (Accelerated Discovery Lab). It aims to find ways to make use of
Big Data for various purposes.

Technological world today relies heavily on Big Data and therefore ADL has been developed to find relevant connections amongst these huge sets of data, to be used for analytical purposes, etc.  According to IBM Fellow and Director of Technology and Operations, Laura Haas, “IBM is focusing on the four V’s of data, namely volume, velocity, variety and veracity.”

According to her, tackling big data challenges isn’t easy and businesses around the globe would require the expertise to achieve the desired means. Apparently, getting better and finer insights from big data is what IBM researchers are currently focused at.

The ADL Lab will be set at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. The main target of the company will be the clients who understand the value of Big Data but need help dealing with it. Michelle Zhou is amongst the team of researchers at IBM’s lab and will have about 15 projects running at a time.
