The Emerging Era of Cognitive Computing!!!!!
Since the beginning of the information age, computers have been used almost exclusively to solve problems that could be modeled with mathematical precision. With the super-convergence of big data, mobile, social, and cloud computing, along with the breakthroughs in artificial intelligence demonstrated in Watson's debut on Jeopardy! We are entering into a new era where computers will serve to amplify our creativity and decision-making processes. In this talk, Rob High of IBM’s Watson Solutions group will discuss how Watson has been put to work in helping doctors, financial analysts, chefs, and consumers make better decisions.
