eFeature #1: Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017

Cognitive Computing, the AI redux, has arrived and all is changed, changed utterly. 

Traditional machine learning techniques need to be supervised by humans so they can learn. “Deep learning” is a new approach to have the system learn on its own, without intervention. Our lives and our work will never be the same. Get ready for cognitive computing, or else. 

While there are several resources for techies in the new world of cognitive computing, Cognitive World is the go-to resource for enterprise decision-makers, C-level executives responsible for the future of their companies. Delivered in business speak, not tech speak.

We've updated Joseph Schumpeter’s 1942 “creative destruction,” the “process of industrial mutation that revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” To wit, look at Amazon’s impact on the retail industries with the once new technology of e-commerce (remember Borders Bookstores?).  Now a new technology, cognitive technology, is driving creative destruction so it’s time to introduce the notion of “cognitive destruction” of established industries. 

Do you want to be the doer or the one done in?



We've released CogWorld's eFeature #1 ~ Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017, featuring thought-provoking articles from CogWorld's Luminaries & Thought Leaders, where Editor-in-Chief Peter Fingar  has introduced the notion of the “cognitive destruction” of established industries. Read eFeature #1 here.

By Tom Davenport ~ Three decades in the past, companies were wrestling with the implementation of enterprise-wide transaction systems.

From Silicon Valley to the Cognitive Pangea

By Vint Cerf, Ph.D. ~ What is it about the residents of Silicon Valley that encourages risk taking? I have often wondered about that and have reached an interesting, if possibly controversial conclusion. Thinking more generally about immigration, I considered my own family history. In the mid-late 1800s, my father's family emigrated from the Alsace-Lorraine region (variously French and German) to Kentucky.
The Driverless Car

Self-driving cars should leave us all unsettled. Here’s why.

By Vivek Wadhwa ~ It is a warm autumn morning, and I am walking through downtown Mountain View, Calif., when I see it. A small vehicle that looks like a cross between a golf cart and a Jetson-esque, bubble-topped spaceship glides to a stop at an intersection. Someone is sitting in the passenger seat, but no one seems to be sitting in the driver seat. How odd, I think. And then I realize I am looking at a Google car.

Crossing the Cognitive Chasm, Circa 2017

CogWorld eFeature #1 | By Peter Fingar and CogWord Luminaries & Thought Leaders ~ Many many pundits have made their predictions for cognitive technologies in 2017. Here we provide a sampling of links to those predictions. However, let’s also raise our perspective and look at the state of cognitive from a macro perspective. We can use Geoffrey Moore’s 1991 classic “Crossing the Chasm,” but update it with a parallel update to Joseph Schumpeter’s 1942 “creative destruction,” the “process of industrial mutation that revolutionizes the economic structure from within, incessantly destroying the old one, incessantly creating a new one.” To wit, look at Amazon’s impact on the retail industries with the once new technology of e-commerce (remember Borders Bookstores?).

The Simple, Economic Value of Artificial Intelligence

By Irving Wladawsky-Berger, Ph.D. ~ I recently attended a very interesting talk , - Exploring the Impact of Artificial Intelligence: Prediction versus Judgment, - by University of Toronto professor Avi Goldfarb. The talk was based on recent research conducted with his UoT colleagues Ajay Agrawal and Joshua Gans. In addition to an in-depth paper aimed at a research audience, they’ve explained their work in two more general interest articles, one in the Harvard Business Review and the second in the MIT Sloan Management Review.

The Cognitive Curmudgeon: the AI glass is half empty, and it has a leak

By Jim Stikeleather ~ The Jobless Economy. There have been decades of political and social debate (Glavas & Mish, 2014) on whether corporations should be considered property, responsible strictly to create wealth for their owners, or alternatively, as fictional persons who should incur the equivalent obligations to society as all its other members.
