IBM chairman and chief executive officer Arvind Krishna kicked off Think 2022 yesterday in Boston. While Think is an invite-only, in-person event held in cities around the world, there is a broadcast component available, which you can find the link to in our Top Story below. Each event will explore data and AI, cybersecurity, and business modernization with hybrid cloud, in other words, the hot topics of the day.
