By Jim Spohrer, Ph.D. ~ Part 1: Cognitive OpenTech Progress. Now consider the relative importance of big Data, Cloud compute power, and new Algorithms as a Service in making progress… we can call all these factors the DCAaaS drivers of progress.
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.
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.
CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Cloudera | By Darran Cooke, Services Delivery Manager, EMEA ~ Delivering Big Data Advanced Analytics - Clusters - Defining Your Requirements - Part 1; Project budgets are usually the primary driver in designing any IT solution, but it's a mindset the industry is steadily trying to move away from.
CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Cloudera ~ At Cloudera, we aim to help organizations apply machine learning and advanced analytics to their most critical business problems. Whether that is detecting sepsis rates in hospital patients, identifying genetic variables that may manifest in future illnesses, detecting malicious behavior or access to customer information, or identifying the trends that predict underground child trafficking.
CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Treeline Interactive | By Tim Homuth and Joe Austin ~ Nordic Semiconductor is playing a key role in the future of electronics by providing ultra-low power (ULP) wireless chips that can run for long periods of time from power sources as small as watch batteries. But that’s just the beginning.
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?
CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Cobalt Speech | By Jeff Adams ~ In 2013, I was leading the top-secret speech and language group at Amazon, busy building what we called “Project Doppler”, and which would eventually be unveiled as the Amazon Echo.
CogWorld Corporate Member Article | Coseer | By Praful Krishna ~ Complex Behavior versus Intelligence. The race to Artificial Intelligence is a grueling, sweaty marathon that human beings have been running for over 70 years. We’ve faced steep climb after climb, the gradients cranking higher every time we run into a new funding gap or technological roadblock.
