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.

SemTech SF, UK, and DC – Is Location the Only Difference?

Since 2005, the Semantic Technology Conference has been going strong and growing. As we have reported here, the 2011 series is expanding into new markets, with conferences scheduled in London and Washington DC later this year.  This is an exciting development, but has also raised questions from the community about the similarities and differences between the three events.  Following are brief descriptions from the SemTech Conference series Co-Chair, Tony Shaw. For information about registration and sponsorship opportunities for each event, see the links after each listing below. Discounts are available for multi-event sponsorships.

San FranciscoSemTech SF is “Everything Semantic.”  It’s by far the largest of the 3 events, in terms of both attendance (approx 1200) and the size of the conference (9 tracks).  SemTech SF has business and technical content, and covers all the major topics from enterprise IT to web-scale infrastructure, and application areas including search, data integration, sentiment analysis, information infrastructure, content management, knowledge management, text analysis, etc.  We also have a research component to the San Francisco program.
