From data deluge to intelligent insights: Adopting cognitive computing to unlock value for marketing and sales

#artificialintelligence

Cognitive computing is the game-changing technology that could be the answer to marketers' and sellers' prayers. It could also be one of the most disruptive forces their functions face. Armed with insights about customers at every touchpoint, professionals using cognitive computing are able to create and deliver the personalized, intuitive experiences customers expect. But are Chief Marketing Officers (CMOs) and heads of sales ready to make the cognitive leap? Our study explores the extent to which these executives are embracing cognitive technologies today, the challenges they face and the lessons they can learn from outperforming companies that are already applying cognitive solutions and driving a cognitive-enabled vision for their business.


AI takes to the sky with IBM Watson - Computer Business Review

#artificialintelligence

AI taken to another level as IBM Watson analysis data in the sky. IBM is taking to the skies with its latest Watson deployment, with Korean Air using the AI tech to help crews on the ground with aircraft maintenance. Using machine learning, Korean Air wants to increase the safety of their planes by taking advantage of the data collection, analytical ability and AI capabilities of IBM's Watson. IBM's Watson will do this by collating data from technical guidelines, inventory and in-flight incident history to analyse a current or potential future problem. In doing so, it will help to identify the cause of these problems and quickly offer an effective solution.


Primer: Make sense of cognitive computing

#artificialintelligence

If you've been seeing the word "cognitive" a lot lately, you're not alone. And if you're confused about exactly what it means from an IT and business perspective, you're not alone in that either. To help provide some clarity around the cognitive concept and what it might mean for your organization, I've put together this primer. Cognitive computing uses technology and algorithms to automatically extract concepts and relationships from data, understand their meaning, and learn independently from data patterns and prior experience--extending what people or machines could do on their own, says Paul Roma, chief analytics officer at consulting firm Deloitte Consulting. Deloitte refers to cognitive computing as "more encompassing than the traditional, narrow view of AI [artificial intelligence]," Roma says.

#artificialintelligence

Jordan Bitterman, CMO of IBM Watson Content & IoT Platform, explores in this seminar the power and promise of the new cognitive era and how it will enable marketers make better decisions, with more confidence and less risk. While AI is expected to create 15 million new jobs over the next 10 years, experts also anticipate 25 million jobs will be replaced by automation in that time period. Peter Spande, CRO of Business Insider, and four other panelists take part in a thoughtful debate about risks and rewards of the technology set to transform our lives, for better or worse. Right now, Artificial Intelligence only has the equivalent of a couple of hundred brain neurons as compared to the 100-billion of our brains. See an insightful discussion lead by Zach Seward, SVP of Product and Executive Editor at Quartz, about the future of A.I. for the advertising industry.

AI vs Machine Learning - Everything you need to know.

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are terms that are currently filling the air in the tech world and across a range of industries, as plans for massive disruption begin to take shape. However, many advances are included under the banner of AI, for example machines have become able to understand human speech, autonomous cars becoming ever more advanced, and platforms are taking on human champions, with one recently dethroning the world champion of the game Go. This example highlights how far humanity has brought the technology, with today's AI capable of learning at a rate even unexpected by the scientists monitoring them. In summary, machine learning continues to be an essential tool that emerged in the late 1950s.

AI that can tell you how to vote - 'Nigel' knows what's best for you - Computer Business Review

#artificialintelligence

Scientists from Kimera Systems have developed a robot that will be able to help users make political decisions. The robot named'Nigel' uses artificial intelligence (AI) to become aware of its user's life and utilise the information by offering advice to user's including how to vote. Unlike other AI robots Nigel programmes itself as it goes, rather than teach itself how to perform and effectively carry out tasks. The newly developed AI system is aware of personal needs and understands their day-to-day routines and the activities they carry out.


Cognitive computing provides for no-touch banking automated solutions

#artificialintelligence

This means take the most frequent questions and requests that a bank receives, employ a cognitive process automation (CPA) system that can respond and answer these requests, and reserve human intervention for the more complex tasks. Once CPA is implemented, employees can focus on more individualized, complex tasks that require human engagement, instead of the mundane day-to-day repetitive requests. Thanks to cognitive banking, banks are providing the personalized and streamlined experience that their customers have been demanding. At the same time, financial institutions are reducing costs and risk, while their workforce are now able to focus on higher-value and quality customer focused interactions – which is quite an improvement from 2000 BC.
