Today and every day, we create a staggering amount of information: formulas, tweets, field notes, legal opinions, photos and more. But the programmable computers of the past couldn’t make sense of all that information. Cognitive systems like IBM Watson can. It lets us do things we’ve never done before. Outthink obstacles. Spot diseases before patients display symptoms. Predict trends before they’re trending. Answer questions before they’re asked.

At IBM you really do have the opportunity to change the way the world works.

Who are today’s generation of “hidden figures”?

Individuals with Disabilities

IBM's long-standing commitment to people with disabilities began in 1914 when IBM hired its first disabled employee, 76 years before the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). A number of first-of-a-kind technology innovations that transformed the assistive technology landscape and provided people with disabilities with unprecedented access to technology, resulted from IBM’s early and often pioneering efforts. Among these innovations were the first Braille printer (1975), a talking typewriter for people who are blind (1980) and a talking display terminal (1981).


Veterans

Veterans are an integral part of our workforce. They are represented in the executive ranks, management, and throughout every business unit or division in IBM. We view our veterans as essential and invaluable contributors. Learn more
