Cognitive Computing provides detailed guidance towardbuilding a new class of systems that learn from experience andderive insights to unlock the value of big data. This book helpstechnologists understand cognitive computing's underlyingtechnologies, from knowledge representation techniques and naturallanguage processing algorithms to dynamic learning approaches basedon accumulated evidence, rather than reprogramming. Detailed caseexamples from the financial, healthcare, and manufacturing walkreaders step-by-step through the design and testing of cognitivesystems, and expert perspectives from organizations such asCleveland Clinic, Memorial Sloan-Kettering, as well as commercialvendors that are creating solutions. These organizations provideinsight into the real-world implementation of cognitive computingsystems. The IBM Watson cognitive computing platform is describedin a detailed chapter because of its significance in helping todefine this emerging market. In addition, the book includesimplementations of emerging projects from Qualcomm, Hitachi, Googleand Amazon.
Today's cognitive computing solutions build on establishedconcepts from artificial intelligence, natural language processing,ontologies, and leverage advances in big data management andanalytics. They foreshadow an intelligent infrastructure thatenables a new generation of customer and context-aware smartapplications in all industries.
Cognitive Computing is a comprehensive guide to thesubject, providing both the theoretical and practical guidancetechnologists need.
- Discover how cognitive computing evolved from promise toreality
- Learn the elements that make up a cognitive computingsystem
- Understand the groundbreaking hardware and softwaretechnologies behind cognitive computing
- Learn to evaluate your own application portfolio to find thebest candidates for pilot projects
- Leverage cognitive computing capabilities to transform theorganization
Cognitive systems are rightly being hailed as the new era ofcomputing. Learn how these technologies enable emerging firms tocompete with entrenched giants, and forward-thinking establishedfirms to disrupt their industries. Professionals who currently workwith big data and analytics will see how cognitive computing buildson their foundation, and creates new opportunities. CognitiveComputing provides complete guidance to this new level ofhuman-machine interaction.
