Time 18:30 - 22:00
Speaker(s) Marc Teerlink, Chief Business Strategist of IBM Watson Group

Cognitive Technology, as was demonstrated by Watson (yes, how else from IBM, a computer) during the American television quiz Jeopardy, processes information more like a human than a computer—by understanding natural language, generating hypotheses based on evidence, and learning as it goes.  The value of cognitive technology isn’t just that it responds rapidly to questions in human language, but that its answers can generate a new set of questions, giving insight into opportunity or risk.  As the new natural resource of the twenty-first century, data has the power to transform industries and business models; but it equally has the power to overwhelm systems and stymie growth.  But as the Millennials represent the largest generation in our Western History, businesses simply cannot ignore the business disruption created by the way Millennials are driving the digital agenda.

As executives witness data’s impact on performance and innovation and recognize its strategic significance, many are wondering: Who should be taking care of the data function? And how do we leverage cognitive technology when it humanizes the process?

In this session, Marc will take you on a roller coaster ride exploring cognitive technology, and the challenges and opportunities for CxO's to drive the new disruption in their market.
