Since I'm a cognitive scientist and also something of a data scientist, I figured I'd weigh in on'Cognitive Computing'--what it is, what it isn't, and what is could (and should) be. The'cognitive' bit of Cognitive Computing is a marketing term. Cognitive computing describes technology platforms that broadly speaking, are based on the scientific disciplines of Artificial Intelligence and Signal Processing. These platforms encompass machine learning, reasoning, natural language processing, speech and vision, human-computer interaction, dialog and narrative generation and more. From the people I've talked to who work with this stuff, the converged-upon definition of Cognitive Computing seems to boil down to inference plus recommendation.
