IBM has maintained a research laboratory in Switzerland since 1956 and is world-renowned for pursuing cutting-edge research for the future of computing. A visit to this two-time Nobel Prize-winning lab will provide visitors with an exclusive sneak peak of the future. Guests will tour our quantum computer lab, the nanotechnology center, including the clean room and noise free labs, as well as the atomic force microscopy lab, which is imaging the smallest molecules known to humankind. Journalists will also get to see live demonstrations of artificial brain synapses for storage and memory and the latest enterprise applications of artificial intelligence.

IBM scientists, including Dr. Alessandro Curioni, IBM Fellow, Vice President of IBM Europe and director of the IBM Research Lab in Zurich, will be available for questions.
