About the Webinar
We will kickoff the 2017 series with an overview of the current state of commercial artificial intelligence (AI) and cognitive computing. The research and commercial communities are far from consensus on a few important definitions, so we will start with two that are critical to our understanding and analysis.
- #ModernAI applies research from computer science, psychology, mathematics, linguistics and neuroscience to develop problem-solving applications that supplant or augment human intellectual performance. Unlike more traditional AI R&D, #ModernAI typically leverages machine learning and big data.
- Cognitive computing is a problem-solving approach based on #ModernAI that focuses on processes for understanding, reasoning, learning and planning.
In this webinar, we will present a framework for analyzing modern AI/cognitive computing tools and technologies, with an emphasis on the risks and reward of adopting them at varying stages of maturity.
