About the Webinar
Cognitive Computing is a rapidly developing technology that has reached practical application and implementation. So what is it? Do you need it? How can it benefit your business?
In this webinar, co-produced by our sister publication, DATAVERSITY(TM), a panel of experts in Cognitive Computing will discuss the technology, the current practical applications, and where this technology is going. The discussion will start with a review of a recent survey produced by DATAVERSITY on how Cognitive Computing is currently understood by your peers. The panel will also review many components of the technology including:
- Cognitive Analytics
- Machine Learning
- Deep Learning
- And next generation artificial intelligence (AI)
And get involved in the discussion with your own questions to present to the panel.
All webinar registrants will be sent a copy of the soon to be published Research Paper on Cognitive Computing produced by DATAVERSITY and co-authored by Moderator Steve Ardire. Included in the paper is as a coupon code to receive a $200 discount on the first annual Cognitive Computing Forum to be held in San Jose, California August 20 – 21st. All registrants will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Free Pass to the Cognitive Computing Forum.
About the Panel
Tony is an IT consultant in Orange County, California with his own boutique consultancy specializing in semantic technologies. In a nutshell, it’s all about making applications smarter by giving them knowledge about the world they operate in — our world. Tony would like to see apps that are software agents or automated assistants actually helping us humans in our day-to-day lives. That could mean helping to find a product, restaurant or ‘infotainment’ content he might like, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
