Dr. Tsuyoshi Ide (Ide-san) is a Senior Technical Staff Member of the Mathematical Sciences department at Thomas J. Watson Research Center.

After receiving his Ph.D. from University of Tokyo in theoretical solid-state physics, Dr. Ide started his career at IBM Research as a researcher in liquid-crystal display technology in 2000. He made a critical contribution to a key technology of ThinkPad FlexView display. It was the first instance of his successful track record of applications of advanced mathematical science approaches to industrial problems. 

After the first successful project, Dr. Ide gradually shifted his research directions from physical science to computer science, especially machine learning. In 2005, he launched an exploratory project of sensor data analytics. In that project, he led many customer engagements, through which he invented an innovative approach called dependency-based anomaly detection. For his fundamental contributions to anomaly detection, he was awarded IBM Outstanding Technical Achievement Award in 2015. His series of work in anomaly detection can be viewed as pioneering work for analytics for Internet-of-Things.

He also made critical contributions to IBM's Smarter Cities initiative, especially through the "Frugal" Intelligent Transportation System in Kenya. 

In 2013, he moved from IBM Research - Tokyo, Japan, to Thomas J. Watson Research Center, NY, USA. He has served as people and project managers for years in both Japan and the United States. For more details on his work, see his home page
