IBM Unveils New Capabilities for Preserving Aging Infrastructure Using AI, 3D Modeling and Data Capture

IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure is designed to assist organizations in better managing, monitoring and maintaining their infrastructure assets. ARMONK, NY Oct. 14, 2020 -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced new capabilities in IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure to help prolong the lifespan of aging bridges, tunnels, highways, and railways. New enhancements include the ability to deploy on Red Hat OpenShift for hybrid cloud environments, as well as new AI and 3D model annotation tools that can provide deep industry and task-specific insights to support engineers. By helping facilitate off-site inspections, advanced analytics and predictive maintenance, IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure is designed to assist organizations in better managing, monitoring and maintaining their infrastructure assets. In the United States roughly $2 trillion in infrastructure repairs were unfunded in 2015, according to the 2017 American Society of Civil Engineers Infrastructure Report Card. And around the world, the prevalence of aging infrastructure threatens the continuity of day-to-day life for citizens worldwide. Owners, operators and engineers need to be able to improve their ability to decide where, when and how to address infrastructure issues with critical assets that must endure for generations. [embedded content] IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure can consolidate numerous sources of data including maintenance and design details; near real-time IoT data generated from sensors; wearables from workers; stationary cameras and drones and weather data from The Weather Company, to identify and measure the impact of damage such as cracks, rust and corrosion, as well as displacement vibrations and stress. These insights can help organizations more proactively manage and prioritize infrastructure repair and reduce the need for time-intensive manual inspections and unnecessary costs. “Tools like AI, predictive maintenance, drones and hybrid cloud will play an important role in meeting the challenge of rising infrastructure costs, and helping these vital structures endure for future generations,” said Bjarne Jørgensen, Executive Director, Asset Management at Sund and Baelt. “These solutions can help determine the exact need for maintenance in near real-time to assist organizations in extending the lifetime of structures.” IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure incorporates AI visual recognition tools developed by IBM Research to allow civil engineers to make structures come alive using 3D modeling. Capabilities like Maximo Visual Inspection can make it easier to identify defects, their root-cause, and place them in the context of the greater structure to perform rapid assessments to better prioritize maintenance decisions that target critical repairs. These tools can be increasingly important for future engineers as skills availability may be a challenge. "Infrastructure maintenance is a problem that’s being compounded from all sides: Bridges are getting older, payloads are getting larger, and the necessary preventive actions and maintenance are often postponed due to lack of funding,” Jørgensen added. "With Maximo for Civil Infrastructure, IBM is introducing a solution that addresses the problem from all sides, using IoT and AI technology to administer more proactive repairs, maintain invaluable institutional and engineering knowledge, and better prioritize resources.” “Maximo for Civil Infrastructure was developed with input from some of the largest operators of infrastructure in the world so that IBM’s powerful technology across AI and IoT is carefully adapted to the unique needs of civil engineers,” said Joe Berti, VP of AI Applications at IBM. “With these tools we believe civil engineers will be able to innovate and improve the process of monitoring, maintaining and preserving important structures around the world.” IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure provides the following new capabilities, in addition to the core offerings available as part of the IBM Maximo Application Suite. Maximo Application Suite licensing and Open Shift deployment: With a single license, customers can now deploy asset management, sensor integration, advanced data analytics including AI functionality and visual analytic capability. Capabilities including Monitor and Health can be deployed now on RedHat Open Shift, which allows customers to more quickly deploy, manage and scale their hybrid cloud deployments with ease. Defect Management: A new user interface that records defect information, adds multi-variable defect rankings, attaches pictures, and stores history for defects. Structural defects do not exist in isolation, they can affect everything they touch and the integrity of the overall structure. By comparing detected defects against work history, sensor data, weather and traffic data and more, AI can help engineers better identify root causes and patterns that indicate a defect may reoccur.  Improved 3D Visualization: Most serious defects are located within the structure and are not necessarily visible from the outside. However, new tools within the Maximo BIM viewer plugin allow users to add annotations to their standard 3D models, giving users access to a 3D representation of an asset, for example a pillar or beam, where all the defects have been annotated on that asset.  Asset Loader Improvements: While every piece of civil infrastructure is unique, many share common hierarchies of assets, and some organizations have hundreds or even thousands of similar bridges that need to be defined in the asset management system. To streamline the process, a new tool to better manage import and export of an asset hierarchy, including a new UI to manage imports and exports and the process of selecting files, is now available.  IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure integrates 30 years of recognized industry-leading infrastructure asset management with best-in-class models from the world's premier infrastructure firms. It helps operators and engineers address one of the world's largest and most complex challenges — extending the lifespan of critical structures under frequently changing conditions. You can read more about how some of its capabilities were developed here. About IBM MaximoPowered by IBM's investments in artificial intelligence, fueled by IoT data, and built for hybrid cloud, The IBM Maximo Application Suite is extending its leadership as one of the most trusted enterprise asset management systems on the planet. And with new investments in remote monitoring, computer vision and AI-powered anomaly detection, it is poised to remain a leading solution for tomorrow's asset management challenges, empowering Operational Technology (OT) and Information Technology (IT) leaders with a comprehensive view into asset performance.

IBM Delivers Its Highest Quantum Volume to Date, Expanding the Computational Power of its IBM Cloud-Accessible Quantum Computers

YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y., Aug. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, IBM has unveiled a new milestone on its quantum computing road map, achieving the company's highest Quantum Volume to date. Combining a series of new software and hardware techniques to improve overall performance, IBM has upgraded one of its newest 27-qubit client-deployed systems to achieve a Quantum Volume 64. The company has made a total of 28 quantum computers available over the last four years through IBM Quantum Experience.  In order to achieve a Quantum Advantage, the point where certain information processing tasks can be performed more efficiently or cost effectively on a quantum computer, versus a classical one, it will require improved quantum circuits, the building blocks of quantum applications. Quantum Volume measures the length and complexity of circuits – the higher the Quantum Volume, the higher the potential for exploring solutions to real world problems across industry, government, and research. To achieve this milestone, the company focused on a new set of techniques and improvements that used knowledge of the hardware to optimally run the Quantum Volume circuits. These hardware-aware methods are extensible and will improve any quantum circuit run on any IBM Quantum system, resulting in improvements to the experiments and applications which users can explore. These techniques will be available in upcoming releases and improvements to the IBM Cloud software services and the cross-platform open source software development kit (SDK) Qiskit.  "We are always finding new ways to push the limits of our systems so that we can run larger, more complex quantum circuits and more quickly achieve a Quantum Advantage," said Jay Gambetta, IBM Fellow and Vice President, IBM Quantum. "IBM's full-stack approach gives an innovative avenue to develop hardware-aware applications, algorithms and circuits, all running on the most extensive and powerful quantum hardware fleet in the industry."  The IBM Quantum team has shared details on the technical improvements made across the full stack to reach Quantum Volume 64 in a preprint released on arXiv, today.
