Sue Feldman along with Swami Chandrasekaran and Mark Myers from IBM will lead a workshop on cognitive computing at KM World 2015. The panel is:
Inspiration, Insights, & Innovation Through Cognitive Computing
1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Susan E. Feldman, CEO, Synthexis Cognitive Computing Consortium
Swami Chandrasekaran, Executive CTO Architect, Watson, IBM
Mark Myers, Product and Solution Marketing Leader, IBM Watson Explorer
Imagine if you could understand the personality characteristics of your customers at a deeper level. Imagine if you could find new, related pathways in your data to make discoveries in a fraction of the time you could before. Imagine a world where information presented itself at the point of possibility; decisions were made with all available evidence; and the expertise of your entire organization was available on demand. This is the power of what can be achieved with cognitive computing. This introduction to cognitive computing by those leading the way gives attendees an overview of cognitive computing. It defines the term, describes cognitive systems, and examines how they differ from today’s business intelligence, search, and question answering systems. It describes problems that cognitive computing can solve, looks at various adoption patterns, and delves into use cases that lend themselves to this new computing paradigm.
Sue is also giving a keynote Tuesday morning.
Keynote: Sparking Innovation: Cognitive Computing & KM
9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.
Susan E. Feldman, CEO, Synthexis and founder of the Cognitive Computing Consortium
Agility, speed and flexibility are key requirements for organizations today. Enterprises need a new approach to handling, analyzing, and acting on complex information—as it arrives. Feldman, a long-time technology analyst discusses a new approach to knowledge management that addresses the complex problems enterprises face today. She considers the impact of cognitive computing on the IT industry and how it will affect our jobs and our lives. She raises issues and possible impacts for those in the search, discovery, content management and knowledge management areas, and demonstrates why KM professionals are uniquely well suited to understanding and using these new technologies. She’ll end by giving us a glimpse of a future fueled by cognitive computing.Share
