Cognitive Computing:
Understand, Reason & Learn

Cognitive Computing refers to systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally. Rather than being explicitly programmed, they learn and reason from their interactions with us and with their environment. This presentation will explore what Cognitive Computing is, how it is being utilized today and the potential for even greater impact in our world by moving from insight to action. We will cover what’s “real” today in IBM’s Watson offerings and what’s on the horizon.
