Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, IBM Think 2020 went digital. Fittingly, conference sessions and speakers covered ways to bolster the remote workforce and modernize IT digital infrastructures, including advanced cloud computing and back-end automation.

With the completion of Red Hat's acquisition last year, IBM is pushing toward open source infrastructure supported by individual toolkits, including its recently released AI Explainability 360 toolkit. IBM is also digging into advanced AI modeling with coverage of data streams, transparency and decision automation.
