To kickstart my Insight 2015 experience, I chatted with several insight economy thought leaders to learn more about the insights that are helping them reinvent their industries. Read on for your own look through the eyes of some of the thought leaders attending this week’s conference.
Significant dropout rates in education need to be addressed, and cognitive learning and analytics may be the key to the solution. See what Jen has to say about personalizing the learning experience for each student in today’s data-centric world.
Intelligent computing technology goes way beyond the processing power and memory capabilities of first-generation supercomputers. Take a look at the legal profession in the not-too-distant future and Watson’s role in bringing the world’s legal knowledge base to a user’s fingertips.
In a world built on sensors, businesses that want to act on data at scale require analytics solutions capable of gaining insights from data in real time, allowing them to make the right decision at the right time.
Game show contestant, medical science researcher and now a legal assistant, IBM Watson continues to expand its cognitive talents into a wide range of professions. Discover why even Watson’s gaffs offer tremendous potential for enhancing tough legal decisions.
So you want to enter the data science field, or maybe you are already a data scientist looking to expand your horizons. Several routes into the profession can provide the core skills, knowledge and best practices necessary to become a developer in the era of cognitive computing. And events such as
Organizations use data and analytics to frame the narratives that guide collective action for highly effective decision making. On the heels of the announcement from the Analytics for All event, take a look at expert storybooks that provide compelling narratives from cognitive analysis to help
Audiences can be exquisitely fickle. What they respond to at any given moment is, if not entirely unpredictable, highly resistant to tidy formulas. Predictive audience analysis can be vital for personalization and targeting and engaging customers. Discover how data-scientific tools for performing
Our mobile devices continue to enhance their utility and conveniences through always-connected personal computing contexts. But what if the applications we rely on for communications, gathering information and scheduling our daily lives could do a lot more by providing information we can
Big data and analytics technology is driving business forward, the newest natural resource in the ever-changing world of computing. Yet even in a constantly evolving industry, certain trends stand out. Take a look at what’s on the horizon for big data and analytics, and find out how it could affect
If we’re going to do the Turing Test right, we might as well use the same intelligence tests we apply to humans. Only by doing so will we ever have a sound basis for claiming that machine are more (or less) intelligent than people.
Will your refrigerator start “friending” you in the near future? This scenario isn’t so far-fetched as the Internet of Things connects us with our personal devices in fascinating—and increasingly private—ways.
Humankind is witnessing substantive paradigm shifts for big data that are transitioning business from recording and reporting approaches to analyzing and predicting practices. Take a look at some emerging data-centric use cases that reveal how automation, the Internet of Things and big data and
Many machine-learning-as-a-service (MLaaS) offerings have natural language processing at their core to support applications such as concept expansion, language identification, machine translation, user modeling, visualization rendering and more. Discover how MLaaS boosts productivity by uncovering
