The Aragon Research Technology Arc™ for Artificial Intelligence, 2017

CogWorld Partner Content | Aragon Research | By Adrian Bowles and Jim Lundy ~ Aragon Research introduces its 2017 Technology Arc™ for Artificial Intelligence. This inaugural edition features 31 technology and market profiles that are split between the emerging, adopting, and mature arcs.

AI Driving Digital Customer Engagement: Part I

By Setrag Khoshafian, Ph.D. ~ There’s no doubt about it: Digital Technology has become an indispensable tool for driving customer engagement. For many companies, effective digital solutions are the foundation on which positive B2C, B2B, and B2B2C relationships are built.

The Simple, Economic Value of Artificial Intelligence

By Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Ph.D. ~ I recently attended a very interesting talk , - Exploring the Impact of Artificial Intelligence: Prediction versus Judgment, - by University of Toronto professor Avi Goldfarb. The talk was based on recent research conducted with his UoT colleagues Ajay Agrawal and Joshua Gans. In addition to an in-depth paper aimed at a research audience, they’ve explained their work in two more general interest articles, one in the Harvard Business Review and the second in the MIT Sloan Management Review.

Robotic process automation: A path to the cognitive enterprise

CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Deloitte | By David Schatsky, Craig Muraskin, Kaushik Iyengar ~ Bots can automate routine tasks and eliminate inefficiency, but what about higher-order work requiring judgment and perception? Developers are incorporating cognitive technologies, including machine learning and speech recognition, into robotic process automation—and giving bots new power.

Minds and machines: The art of forecasting in the age of artificial intelligence

Source: Deloitte | By Jim Guszcza and Nikhil Maddirala ~ The human/artificial intelligence (AI) relationship is just heating up. So when is AI better at predicting outcomes, and when are humans? What happens when you combine forces? And more broadly, what role will human judgment play as machines continue to evolve?

Cognitive collaboration | Why humans and computers think better together

By Jim Guszcza, Harvey Lewis, Peter Evans-Greenwood | Deloitte ~ AI as a scientific discipline is commonly agreed to date back to a conference held at Dartmouth University in the summer of 1955. The conference was convened by John McCarthy, who coined the term “artificial intelligence,” defining it as the science of creating machines “with the ability to achieve goals in the world.”4 The Dartmouth Conference was attended by a who’s who of AI pioneers, including Claude Shannon, Alan Newell, Herbert Simon, and Marvin Minsky.

The Thinker and the Shopper

By Anupam Narula, David Schatsky, Ben Stiller, Robert Libbey | Deloitte ~ The time could be ripe for consumers and consumer products companies to embrace cognitive technologies, which can offer companies ways to deliver benefits to consumers to a greater degree than previously possible.

Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Capabilities, and Robotic Process Automation: How Intelligent Automation is Advancing Enterprise Performance

CogWorld Corporate Member Article | SSON | By Barbara Hodge ~ If there is one innovation that defines 2017 it is intelligent automation (IA) – and all it entails. New intelligent automation technology, which accesses data, processes it and then initiates actions – all the while “learning while doing” – is supporting enterprise decision-makers by providing a significantly improved quality of support services.

How to Make AI Think like Humans

The entire discipline of cognitive computing is about making artificial intelligence emulate the cognitive processes humans are so used to. In this presentation we talk about five techniques / technologies that we have found to be very successful. These techniques are foundational to Coseer’s tactical cognitive computing, and can be useful to your team.
