COGNITIVE COMPUTING: Is neuromorphic AI the next big thing?

Despite the many successes that cognitive computing has had, researchers see potential for improvement and are pushing forward to develop more capabilities. Among the cutting-edge technologies of interest are neuromorphic systems, which are modeled after the human brain. They have the potential to be more generalizable than existing cognitive systems, which are often limited to a narrow domain. That could allow for more use cases to be developed from the same system.

Pushing ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ahead: the practical business value of cognitive visualizations

Although use cases for cognitive visualizations abound horizontally in industries such as finance, healthcare, life sciences and law enforcement, they're gaining the most credence in the industrial and manufacturing sectors.

ECM— more options for efficient processes and better digital experiences

Content management is becoming more user friendly and presentation options more flexible as the requirement for omnichannel delivery becomes the norm.

Next-generation communities—Part 1 Designing flexible communities that fulfill business needs

More elastic community structures allow organizations to meet short-term needs and facilitate a broader spectrum of collaboration.

In financial services, KM is a plus

The use of knowledge management tools for financial services firms continues to grow and change with the industry itself.

Navigating the Minefield: A Practical KM Companion By Patricia Lee Eng and Paul J. Corney -- BOOK REVIEW

Successful KM launches have involved KM champions, sponsors and mentors. "Choose something that addresses a pain point, can be done quickly and won't cost a lot," the authors advise as an initial KM step.

Perspective on knowledge: The good, the bad, the networked

Most would agree that their perception of the Net, along with the general public's, is far darker than it was even just a few years ago.

The Future of the Future

Critical capacities for navigating in turbulent times

To navigate better in severe turbulence, three critical capacities are needed: foresight, agility and resilience. Those capacities have always been fundamental to sustaining high performance in knowledge-based organizations. But during times of turbulence, they need to be operating at peak levels.

Cognitive Computing

Automating cognitive tasks: fact or fiction?

There is a long-standing debate in philosophical, psychological and educational circles about how to understand and measure intelligence. Is intelligence actually a singular thing that can be pointed to and measured, for example, by an IQ test? Or are there multiple kinds of intelligence whose existence and behaviors only come to light when individuals confront specific kinds of context in life?
