She’s lived in Endicott her whole life, and worked at IBM as a nurse during the 1970s before becoming the town’s representative on the county legislature.</p><p>“I’m a real hard-nose 'I love Endicott' girl, ok?" Hudak said. "My dad worked in the Endicott-Johnson factory. My mom was a wonderful seamstress, made a good living doing that. I went to school at Union-Endicott.”</p> Thu, 23 Jan 2014 13:01:46 +0000 Matt Richmond 50276 at http://wrvo.org National study finds elevated rates of cancer and neurological disease amongst IBM Endicott workers Super computing could help manage enormous amounts of medical information http://wrvo.org/post/super-computing-could-help-manage-enormous-amounts-medical-information <div class="card-content"><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden "><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p></p><p>Watson, the IBM supercomputer, is best known for its historic win on the television game show, Jeopardy.

Andrew Cuomo recently announced New York would invest $250 million to develop smart grid technologies to modernize the state's energy grid. At Clarkson University, the highly regarded science and engineering school in St. Lawrence County, a professor working on smart energy grid systems was just awarded a grant by IBM. The $10,000 prize will help him continue his research, and develop coursework for students to train the next generation to use this hot technology.
