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

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.

Thoughts from the wild: are conversations at the heart of Cognitive Computing adoption?

Thoughts from the wild: are conversations at the heart of Cognitive Computing adoption?

Economies and businesses need to out-think and outlearn the competition, by embedding learning in every process and empowering people with all forms of digital intelligence. This learning and digital intelligence should focus on the conversations that enable the business to exist, recognising that conversational data spans across all facets of corporate memory in both structured and unstructured forms. With this kind of reshaped data culture and focus, intelligence harnessed from conversational data through cognitive technologies can help lower costs, lower risk and increase value.

Understanding the Differences – ML, DL, CC, AI

Understanding the Differences – ML, DL, CC, AI

By Gary Olson ~ The history of computers has been a continuum of using technology to perform human tasks theoretically faster, more efficiently and more accurately. In some instances computers are able to accomplish tasks or calculations beyond human capabilities in a reasonable time frame.

Get Cognitive Now!

By Tom Davenport ~ Three decades in the past, companies were wrestling with the implementation of enterprise-wide transaction systems. Two decades ago, many organizations were anxious to develop electronic commerce capabilities. A decade ago, most firms were just beginning to think about how to embrace advanced analytics for better decision-making. Today..

Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017

Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017

CogWorld eFeature #1 | By Peter Fingar and CogWord Luminaries & Thought Leaders ~ 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?).

The Cognitive Computing Era is Here: Are You Ready?

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.

Sometimes the Veneer of Intelligence is Not Enough

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:

How to Make AI Think like Humans

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.
