IBM and Raytheon Technologies will jointly develop advanced artificial intelligence, cryptographic and quantum solutions for the aerospace, defense and intelligence industries, including the federal government, as part of a strategic collaboration agreement the companies announced today:

Artificial intelligence and quantum technologies give aerospace and government customers the ability to design systems more quickly, better secure their communications networks and improve decision-making processes. By combining IBM's breakthrough commercial research with Raytheon Technologies' own research, plus aerospace and defense expertise, the companies will be able to crack once-unsolvable challenges.

"The rapid advancement of quantum computing and its exponential capabilities has spawned one of the greatest technological races in recent history – one that demands unprecedented agility and speed," said Dario Gil, senior vice president, IBM, and director of Research. "Our new collaboration with Raytheon Technologies will be a catalyst in advancing these state-of-the-art technologies – combining their expertise in aerospace, defense and intelligence with IBM's next-generation technologies to make discovery faster, and the scope of that discovery larger than ever."

In addition to artificial intelligence and quantum, the companies will jointly research and develop advanced cryptographic technologies that lie at the heart of some of the toughest problems faced by the aerospace industry and government agencies.

[...] The companies are building a technical collaboration team to quickly insert IBM's commercial technologies into active aerospace, defense and intelligence programs. The same team will also identify promising technologies for jointly developing long-term system solutions by investing research dollars and talent.

    I predict the taxpayers will pay at least $5 trillion for something with a lot of buzzwords in it, and it will be used to fight a war.

      We only need two buzzwords: Killer Robots.

        they got plenty more though:

        Artificial intelligence .. quantum technologies .. breakthrough commercial research .. once-unsolvable challenges .. rapid advancement .. exponential capabilities .. unprecedented agility .. collaboration .. catalyst in advancing .. expertise .. next-generation technologies .. jointly research and develop .. building a technical collaboration team to quickly insert .. into active aerospace, defense and intelligence .. improve decision-making processes. ..identify promising technologies for jointly developing long-term system solutions by investing research dollars and talent

        TLDR : pump, rump and dump.

      This kind of collaboration always end up bad with IBM.
      - IBM collaborated with Microsoft for the DOS and OS/2 operating system.
      - IBM collaborated with Automation Anyware to provide their RPA solution
      - IBM collaborated with Box for their cloud file sharing service.
      IBM just have to learn to buy the other company fast, collaboration only makes a future competitor stronger, just because IBM don't see the full business potential and the other do.
