Cognitive Systems of the Future: Accelerating Business Capability using Human Machine Symbiosis

Presented by: Sridhar Iyengar

A new era of computing has dawned on us in this decade, first with IBM Watson defeating Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter in the game of Jeopardy and more recently with Google DeepMind defeating Lee Sedol the champion of the ancient Chinese Go game of strategy.  What has changed?  Availability of massive volumes of data , new computing architectures optimized to process very large neural networks, new algorithms that can perform human like tasks of speech recognition , conversations, vision and emotion detection.  These cognitive systems will help us transform industries and help scale human expertise to democratize knowledge all over the world. These will be in our tool box to accelerate business capability.

Join us at this session and meet the worlds experts  to:

  • Learn about recent advances in Cognitive Systems, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
  • See how you can introduce these capabilities in your business.
