Software Giant Creates 'Collaboratories' With Irish Universities

A collaboration between software giant IBM and several Irish universities is set to create 40 new jobs.

The venture has been backed by IDA Ireland, in what is described by IBM as a 'collaboratory' project.

It is planned that the firm's researchers will be able to conduct surveys and experiments outside their own laboratories, and engage with other institutions.

Under the agreement announced today, IBM supercomputing experts will work with researchers from Trinity College, Tyndall National Institute, NUIG, UCC and the Irish Council for Science, Engineering and Technology.

The man aim behind the scheme is to develop more power computer system which can manage massive volumes of data and analysis.

IBM also announced plans to work with researchers at the University of Limerick and the IBM Watson Centre to design a new generation of data centres at its Dublin Technology Campus.
