IBM Makes Math Cool, Current

"John Kelly, senior vice president and director of research at IBM, said, 'Our 150 mathematicians make up the largest math department in the world housed in one institution.'

Dietrich said a typical week for an IBM mathematician includes spending time on their research agenda similar to a university professor. They also spend time 'working on a real instance of the problem' they have been assigned to, as well as keeping current with the field of mathematics, she said. 'We want our mathematicians lean and mean.'"
