Deloitte, a CogWorld member, has provided the results from their 2017 Deloitte State of Cognitive Survey. Cognitive technologies adoption is abound..

Deloitte 2017 Analysis

Will cognitive really change anything?

​Those who have already begun adopting and using cognitive and AI technologies are highly enthusiastic about the role of these technologies in their companies, both today and in the future. Many of these companies feel that using AI is central to their ability to change their businesses and get ahead of their competition. None of our respondents believe that AI will fail to drive substantive change, either for themselves or their industry. Download 2017 Deloitte State of Cognitive Survey.

Crossing the Cognitive Chasm: The Journey











eFeature #2: Crossing the Cognitive Chasm: The Journey (View prospectus)
Release & distribution: January 25, 2018 

Estimated exposure (January - March): 500,000+ enterprise decision-makers, influencers, professionals and professors

Way back in 1993, when Hammer and Champy wrote "Reengineering the Corporation," the book launched the Business Process Reengineering (BPR) revolution. ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) systems were all the rage, with large companies paying millions to consultants to “convert” to ERP systems, tearing down silos and integrating company functions into a meaningful whole. But that was yesterday, and yesterday gave way to Business Process Management (BPM) systems, “built to change” vs. a single “conversion” as in the early days of ERP. But today is today, and the advent of cognitive computing changes all, with those failing to adapt falling into the cognitive chasm .. a process we call “cognitive destruction.” So, what to do??  Read more.. 

eFeature #1: Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017 (view eFeature)
Here, we introduced the notion of "cognitive destruction" of established industries..

Cognitive Destruction

Traditional machine learning techniques need to be supervised by humans so they can learn. “Deep learning” is a new approach to have the system learn on its own, without intervention. Our lives and our work will never be the same. Get ready for cognitive computing, or else.

Cognitive Computing, the AI redux, has arrived and all is changed, changed utterly. 

Many many pundits have made their predictions for cognitive technologies in 2017. Here we provide a sampling of links to those predictions. However, let’s also raise our perspective and look at the state of cognitive from a macro perspective. We can use Geoffrey Moore’s 1991 classic “Crossing the Chasm,” but update it with a parallel update to Joseph Schumpeter’s 1942 “creative destruction,” the “process of industrial mutation that revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” To wit, look at Amazon’s impact on the retail industries with the once new technology of e-commerce (remember Borders Bookstores?). Now a new technology, cognitive technology, is driving creative destruction so it’s time to introduce the notion of the “cognitive destruction” of established industries. Do you want to be the doer or the one done in?  Read eFeature  |  Read Peter Fingar's article
