Rocket.Build: Around the World in 15 Days

  In the 19th century a commonly heard phrase was, “the sun never sets on the British Empire.” It was a true statement: at any given time, it was daytime somewhere in territories controlled by Queen Victoria. But it wasn’t an original concept: the phrase was previously applied to the Spanish empire, and historians have […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: don’t be afraid of the AI boogeyman

I’ve been lucky enough to sit in on a number of interesting conversations and presentations this week at World of Watson that deal with the underpinnings of cognitive technology–most notable, artificial intelligence (AI for short). And interestingly, something that came up in each of those conversations was the usual Hollywood portrayal of AI as the […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: could a cognitive system have written this for me?

A lot of the talk this week focuses on how AI and cognitive systems can help extend our abilities in healthcare, or factories, or public infrastructure. But these systems also have potential applications for non-physical pursuits. For example, marketing. In a session I attended yesterday, the speaker noted that marketers only have access to 20% […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: the cognitive Internet of Things (IoT)

Artificial intelligence and cognitive computing have only recently become a reality for the mass market due to a combination of two things–increased, low-cost computing power and an explosion of data. If you’ve been keeping up with the trends over the past five years, it’s not hard to guess where much of that data is coming […]

Live from IBM World of Watson: Open Source Cognitive Computing? Yup.

One of the barriers to entry for any new technology is entropy. Simply put, people are far too busy to take time out of their busy lives to learn new languages and new skills unless they have a compelling reason to do so. And it’s not just about staying up to speed on the latest […]

Meet, Greet…and Eat

It’s been a busy few days for Rocket at this year’s IBM Edge conference in Las Vegas. We’ve seen (and participated in) some great presentations about the future of data and computing, but it’s also been an opportunity for Rocketeers to connect with our colleagues at IBM, meet with industry experts, and spend time with […]

Live from IBM Edge 2016: beyond Moore’s Law

IBM Edge kicked off this morning, and as befits an event focused on infrastructure, there’s been a good bit of conversation about both hardware and software. I’ve been to a few technology conferences in my day, but I have to admit…never have I heard Moore’s Law referenced so many times in one day. More than […]

The Rocket Band weekend playlist

The Rocket Band will be performing in Las Vegas in a few weeks. This is at least the 10th time that the group has played in public (the upcoming show is part of the Edge conference), and we’ve never had the same lineup twice. That’s because the group is made up of Rocket employees from […]

Rocket Software Interns 2016 Community Education

Where are students learning about software and coding?

Rocket Software just said farewell to our 2016 summer engineering interns – and we look forward to seeing many of them back in our hallways once they graduate. Not only did they bring a lot of creativity and energy to the company, but they also gave us valuable insight into some of the ways that […]
