Instrumented Interconnecteds Intelligent

ibmwatsonThe first era of computing was defined by simple calculations. The second era, beginning in the 1940s, introduced us to programmable systems. Now we’re entering the era of cognitive computing. In this era  we will have machines that will learn, reason, sense, predict and interact more naturally with human beings. IBM Watson  is a significant step in that direction and is currently working with doctors to fight cancer.

The next #P4SPchat will invite discussions about how smart machines will help make the world work better. Please join the discussion at Noon ET on Oct. 31.

IBM Research senior manager of cognitive computing Dharmendra Modha and IBM Communications strategist Steve Hamm will join the chat as guest experts. Dharmendra is heading up the SyNAPSE project, with the goal of creating a cognitive chip and programming environment to building the next generation of sensing machines. Steve is the co-author with IBM Research Director John Kelly of the new book, Smart Machines: IBM’s Watson and the Era of Cognitive Computing.
