Live from IBM World of Watson: How Cognitive Computing Is Changing Our World

This week at World of Watson IBM is giving the world a sneak peek into the future of cognitive computing. It’s made me think about how artificial intelligence can transform our world – and how it’s already doing so. Far from the hostile AI of movies like Terminator and The Matrix, Watson illustrates how computer […]

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 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 […]

Create your future by building on your past

I have had time to reflect on the many conversations I had last month at IBM InterConnect. Some of the more interesting and impactful conversations had to do with the topic of modernization. I thought I’d share my thoughts on modernization with you this month in the form of a Q&A. Do I have to re-invent […]

Mobile Trends at IBM InterConnect 2016

I’ve been at IBM InterConnect 2016 for a few days now, and I’ve been on the lookout for new developments in the world of mobile computing. While I probably could have just asked IBM Watson for help, I’d like to share these two trends I’ve noticed during my visit. The first trend is how the human experience […]

Indoor Geopositioning Through the Internet of Things

While I was at IBM Insight last month, I attended a few labs and sessions on (or related to) the Internet of Things (IoT). My take on the Internet of Things is still along the lines of what I had written during InterConnect in February. That is, the Internet of Things helps us to gather […]

Live from IBM Insight2015: Whither Watson?

IBM’s Watson has been on my radar for quite a while now.  For long I have been quite confused as to what Watson actually is. It appeared to be a strange multi-shaped thing with a varying definition, depending of how you looked at it. The example application and services were sometimes quite exotic; I still have a […]

Think about all of the decisions that you […]

Getting Ready for IBM Insight2015

Insight2015 is upon us, and like IBM Interconnect earlier this year, I will be blogging and tweeting about it. While it is not the same super-sized event that Interconnect was, Insight is still a sizable conference, running from Sunday to Thursday. The sessions list is almost overwhelming, but that’s what makes it so attractive. Just […]
