Intelligent Requirements and Obligation Life Cycle Management using IBM Watson

Presented by: Sridhar Iyengar


This talk will explore work underway in IBM Research Labs in the emerging discipline of Intelligent Regulatory Compliance and Requirements Management. Requirements Management has been traditionally an integral part of application life cycle management for decades and is still quite a manual process. More recently requirements management under the term Obligation Life Cycle Management has begun to show up as an important discipline in the world Governance and Regulatory Compliance. To date the tools support for requirements management has focused on authoring, managing and tracing requirements. In the era of Cognitive Computing that was launched by IBM Watson in 2011, the move to intelligently process new data types including text, speech images and video is well underway. What if we are able to harness the Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning capabilities of IBM Watson so we can begin developing Cognitive Assistants t hat can help author, discover and trace requirements to requirement management controls (such as software tests or business controls that implement regulations). The talk will cover the basics of Cognitive Computing and how it applies to Requirements discovery and traceability and conclude with a technology demonstration.
