"The New Era of Cognitive Computing"

The victory of IBM’s Watson on the game show Jeopardy! signaled the dawn of a new era of cognitive systems. Scientists at IBM are creating machines that sense, learn, reason, and interact with people in new ways. Cognitive systems will help us gain insights into the vast complexity of big data, make better informed decisions — and transform domains as diverse as healthcare, retail, education, and the future of cities.

This discussion will explore the emergence of cognitive computing, the future of Watson, and new technologies, including nanotechnology devices, that will enable the future of computing

John E. Kelly III, senior vice president and director of IBM research, leads IBM’s global research efforts, which encompasses approximately 3,000 scientists and technical employees across 12 laboratories in 10 countries. He also leads the company’s worldwide intellectual property efforts. He has published numerous technical papers and recently published the book Smart Machines: IBM’s Watson and the Era of Cognitive Computing.
