DATAVERSITY and SemanticWeb.com Launch Cognitive Computing Forum

Cognitive COmputig Forum logoDATAVERSITY™ and SemanticWeb.com have announced the first Cognitive Computing Forum in San Jose, California, on August 20-21, 2014. This two-day conference was developed to help attendees understand the new world of Cognitive Analytics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Reasoning and next generation Artificial Intelligence. Visit www.cognitivecomputingforum.com to view speakers, the agenda, registration options, and to learn more about this unique event.

Cognitive systems are the next stage in the evolution of smarter computing and are often described as emulating the human brain. Built upon recent advances in technologies such as natural language processing, machine learning, sensors, and neural networks, and combined with massive computational power, cognitive computing promises to bring staggering improvements to applications. Among the biggest improvements are expected in predictive analytics, robot intelligence, computer-based reasoning, and human annotation. New technologies and companies are on the horizon, and these top technologies will be represented and available to attendees throughout the event.

DATAVERSITY has enlisted a world-class group of speakers to lead the in-depth presentations at the conference. Tom Mitchell, Professor of AI and Learning at Carnegie Mellon University; Chris Welty, Research Scientist at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center; Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect at MapR, and Google Fellow R.V. Guhaare among the industry experts on the schedule.

Discover the potential of Cognitive Computing for your organization and register your staff for this event. Register two staff members from the same organization and the third is free. See details at www.cognitivecomputingforum.com on this and other discounts available now.
