Build your Think experience with Watson Session Expert

Share this post:

With 100s of sessions, Think Tanks, labs, expert talks, certifications, exhibitors, activations, and more to explore at Think 2018, creating a personalized agenda is the best way to get the most out of this conference.

The Watson Session Expert is a wonderful way to explore everything Think 2018 has to offer while building your own personalized agenda in one easy-to-navigate online experience. Anyone can join. This helpful and newly updated tool lets you browse sessions and build your agenda right from your desktop or mobile device before or after you register. You’ll have the power to view sessions and craft your own tailored agenda to be sure you get the most from your Think 2018 experience.

It’s the one place you can learn more about speakers, get details on talks, see all the sessions, read about activities, and find just what you’re looking for at Think weeks before you get there!


See recommended sessions based on your interests and goals

The Watson Session Expert is the ultimate copilot for navigating your Think 2018 experience.

You can start by answering some questions and sharing more about what interests you and what you’d like to learn. As you steer your answers in a certain direction, Watson Session Expert will adjust and ask for feedback as it gets to know what sessions and activities might be a match for your preferences.


By answering a few simple questions and chatting with Watson, you can refine those results even more. The more you interact with the Watson Session Expert, the more accurately it will filter results to help you focus on what’s most relevant to you.


Filter your results or browse to see even more activities

Not into chatting with Watson? Don’t worry, we still have your standard filters there for you. If you already know what you want to learn, you can look through all the possibilities as you use the browse/search function to explore, filter, and select at your own pace.

You can also explore curriculum via filters to get a broader view of what Think is all about. You can sort and search by industry, by level, by campus or by program, and even by day of the week as you further refine your agenda and tighten up your schedule.


Start building your ideal agenda in a few clicks or taps

Adding sessions to your agenda is easy. Once you’re signed into the Watson Session Expert with your IBMid, you can add whatever looks interesting.

You’ll see more recommended options that match what you’ve already added so you can dive deeper into the topics that interest you most.

If you want to opt out of a session, you can simply dismiss it from your agenda.

Whenever you’re logged in, you’ll also have easy access to your agenda for quick reference as you compare notes with any friends, clients, or colleagues who are making their own Think plans.


Explore everything at Think 2018 before you even register!

Not only is the Watson Session Expert the only place attendees are able to view all sessions, select their favorites, and craft their agenda, it’s also accessible to everyone—not just attendees. Browse sessions and learn what we’re thinking about as more content is added, more theories are revealed, and more knowledge is shared.

It’s just one more way to see all our can’t-miss moments and help you convince your boss that you definitely need to make it to Think 2018!


Act fast— sometimes space is limited

Don’t forget that some hands-on labs with limited availability are filling up fast, so be sure to use Watson Session Expert to start building your agenda as soon as you complete registration. If you’re already registered to attend Think and haven’t yet used the Watson Session Expert, right now is the perfect time to start!

And also keep in mind that the Watson Session Expert is always evolving.

We’re adding more features as well as more sessions, booths, and other important content as the week of March 19 approaches. Be sure to check back often via website to see the newest sessions, exhibitors, and info as we get closer to Think.

With the countless combinations of sessions and activities you can add to your agenda, we can’t wait to discover what you plan and live out your ideal conference experience with you!
