IBM Keynote

From Science Fiction to Science Fact: How AI Will Change Our Approach to Building Apps and Leveraging Data
9:00 AM Wednesday, March 22nd
Rama Akkiraju, Distinguished Engineer, Master Inventor, IBM Watson User Technologies
IBM Watson and Cloud Platform

Rama has co-authored 4 book chapters, and over 50 technical papers. She is the recipient of 3 best paper awards in the areas of AI and Operations Research.

We have entered a new period of computing history — a cognitive era. For decades, science fiction visionaries have shared their renditions of intelligent machines and computers that could learn and function as humans. Intelligent machines have moved beyond the lore of science fiction; today, they are a reality thanks to breakthroughs in AI and machine learning. So how will this impact and change the apps that we build and how we leverage new and existing data?

In this interactive session, we’ll explore those questions and:

• Discuss where AI currently is and where the technology is going
• Show how pioneering apps and developers around the world are already using it
• Provide access to sample code and applications which you and your teams can use to understand and explore cognitive computing for yourself
