Everyone is talking about AI. The past year has catapulted artificial intelligence into the public consciousness in dramatic fashion, utterly eclipsing the boomlet of inflated expectations that AI experienced in the 1980s. Posted October 30, 2017

Two themes are top of mind at this stage of the new AI era: "Training data is the new ‘oil' for the AI economy," and "deep learning has left the labs and become mainstream. Posted September 14, 2017

But what is a cognitive computing application exactly? Would you know one if you saw one? And would you have a reasonably intelligent way to differentiate a cognitive application from the applications we are familiar with in this early cloud/big data period? Posted May 31, 2017

We are articulating a framework designed to offer executives who are facing opportunities or challenges in the world of cognitive computing a systematic way to consider the key decision elements for a particular application goal. Posted March 31, 2017

When we think about how to understand the emerging dynamics of the markets for cognitive computing and what it's going to look like as products begin to come to market, what better place to look for a model than to the field of autonomous vehicles? Posted March 01, 2017

When the world learned this spring of the untimely death of a Tesla driver in Florida who crashed his vehicle into a semi-trailer while relying on the company's autopilot feature, a shudder went through the driverless car community. It should have gone through the cognitive computing community as well. Posted October 30, 2016

It is clear that accepting "cognitive" and AI as synonyms is too simplistic an approach for today's rapidly moving field. We have a very long way to go in both science and execution before the flip to a machine-driven society takes place. Posted July 01, 2016

While most enterprise firms are caught in the last decade's developments, a new competition at the level of cognitive is beginning in earnest. Posted April 29, 2016

Cognitive computing's value proposition is grounded on the ability to offer contextualized insights to a human decision-maker. Posted January 31, 2016

Cognitive computing offers a new approach to uncover the potential in data—and capture value whether the data is big or small. Posted December 30, 2015

Artificial intelligence (AI) is in the midst of a resurgence, after 20-plus years of hanging its head and seeking shelter in the darkest corners of the academy. Posted October 01, 2015

By amassing more information than any of us can individually, and then presenting it in an analytic environment with our problem as the lens, a cognitive app can encourage the intuition and creative imagination of the human expert. Cognitive computing augments the human capacity for taking in random information and combining it in novel ways within the context of a current problem.... Posted March 31, 2015

Tracy Kidder's classic 1981 bestseller The Soul of a New Machine chronicles relentless work by teams of Data General engineers to design a next-generation mini-computer. How it all gets done isn't necessarily pretty and looks just like hard work, buffeted by personalities, morale, ambition, deadlines, compromises. But the machine became a leader in its field....

Computers are one of those artifacts of modern life that we love to hate. They are powerful, pervasive, intrusive and, let's face it, clumsy to use. Today's applications require us to break down complex, subtle ideas into simplistic statements. We must learn arcane codes to speak their language. They are incapable of assisting us in an evolving knowledge voyage because their understanding breaks down as our context or intentions change. Posted October 27, 2014

Cognitive computing should redefine the relationship between people and their digital environment. Context is the new element at the heart of this next computing frontier.... Posted June 27, 2014

In the last year, a groundswell of support has started to form Posted May 01, 2008

Search is strategic; however, the strategic potential of search is not captured by the act of acquiring a powerful search platform alone. Pioneering firms are now developing a new kind of management approach to help deliver maximum value across multiple search-driven applications: the “search center of excellence.” It is a structured approach, utilizing a focused cross-functional team, and it is emerging as a practical tool to drive search innovation and deliver high quality online experiences.
