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?

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.

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

A CogWorld Custom Feature ~ Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is often shrouded in confusion ... what exactly is it? Consider “intelligence” in general, meaning to have the ability to reason..
