Columnist Articles


The Cognitive Computing Era is Here: Are You Ready?

By Peter Fingar ~ The era of cognitive systems is dawning and building on today’s computer programming era. All machines, for now, require programming, and by definition programming does not allow for alternate scenarios that have not been programmed. To allow alternating outcomes would require going up a level, creating a self-learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) system.

The Cusp of Technological Transformation

By Chuck Brooks ~ If you read the MIT Technology Review, the DARPA website, and Google Futurist Ray Kurzweil on a regular basis, you will be provided daily insights into the trends of disruptive technological transformation. This notion translates to a new period in our history where we will be able to harness our technologies and control our destinies.
Cognitive Pangea

From Silicon Valley to the Cognitive Pangea

By Vint Cerf ~ What is it about the residents of Silicon Valley that encourages risk taking? I have often wondered about that and have reached an interesting, if possibly controversial conclusion. Thinking more generally about immigration, I considered my own family history. In the mid-late 1800s, my father's family emigrated from the Alsace-Lorraine region (variously French and German) to Kentucky.
Speech Interface

Improving Speech Interface Implementations

By N.D. Ludlow ~ Do you remember the HAL-9000 computer saying “I’m sorry, Dave. I am afraid I can’t do that.” in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey? Speech Processing and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) has progressed in the last couple of decades into ubiquitous use today in nearly all smart phones. But how can we improve upon this technology’s use in our business applications?

Cognitive Computing: Five “I wish I would haves” to Avoid

By Paul Roma ~ Let’s talk about cognitive computing. After all, everybody else is, right? In fact, there’s so much chatter about cognitive, in the worlds of both academia and business, that your instincts probably tell you to ignore it as much as possible – to let everything cool down a bit so that we can recognize it for what it really is.
Time to Move

Time to move: From Interest to adoption of cognitive technology

By Tom Davenport and Paul Roma ~ When it comes to adoption of cognitive technology, some of the leading companies are progressing rapidly from the pilot project phase to the production application phase. Those on the sidelines would do well to move from interest to adoption of this impressive group of technologies.

Cognitive technologies all set to transform business processes

By Tom Davenport ~ Some cognitive technology vendors and customers are moving past the “science project” phase and using artificial intelligence (AI) to transform business processes. Now is the time for businesses to consider the areas suitable for AI and how they can help transform key processes.

Sometimes the Veneer of Intelligence is Not Enough

By Doug Lenat ~ We all chafe against the brittleness of SIRI, Alexa, Google,… every day.  They’re so incredibly useful and yet so incredibly… well, stupid, at the same time.  For instance:

Litigation Alert!

A CogWorld Custom Feature by Lisa Wood ~ "It costs less to avoid getting into trouble than to pay for getting out of it." --Louis M. Brown, USC Law Professor (1909-1996).

AGI - Kimera

AGI.. Still 50 Years Out?? Let’s See. Of course, a lot depends on how one defines it.

A CogWorld Custom Feature by Peter Fingar ~ Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is often shrouded in confusion ... what exactly is it? Consider “intelligence” in general, meaning to have the ability to reason, use strategy, solve puzzles, and make judgments under uncertainty; represent knowledge, including commonsense knowledge; plan; learn; communicate in natural language; and integrate all these skills towards common goals.

Big Data: Needles and Haystacks

A CogWorld Custom Feature by Peter Fingar ~ We’ve been loaded (and overloaded) with information about Big Data, and more recently, Cognitive Computing. I’ve researched and written a lot about these subjects. But recently...
