Thinking beyond the status quo
The technologies exist today to achieve almost any corporate or departmental goal. What is lacking is the nerve to think big and think beyond the status quo—to break barriers, to collaborate, and to share.
Cognitive computing and AI begin to grow together
How do we manage the hype and promise for new inventions while making sure that they represent a realistic opportunity? Can we invent self-driving cars or a Boeing 737 MAX without exposure to the risks these innovations can pose to our lives?
Talk a little, type a lot - Will conversational interfaces survive Siri and Alexa?
For the next generation of conversational computing, it is hard to avoid the conclusion that the only companies that have enough researchers, enough processing resources, enough motivation, and, above all, enough data to deliver the much- needed improvements are the consumer giants.
Ethical issues in AI and cognitive computing
Many innovations from the past needed the insight of entrepreneurs as well as technologists to change the world. That's also the case with machine learning and AI.
The convergence of convergence
The more systems and subsystems we attempt to stitch together, the greater the unpredictability.
Cognitive Computing: Balancing the risks with the rewards from AI
The fact is that the effects of AI and cognitive computing will be even broader than current traditional computing systems. As we incorporate more and more data sources for better results, we also increase the likelihood of affecting more lives and more organizations.
