The Daily Think: Thursday Edition

Share this post:

It’s Thursday, which means the last day of Think 2018 is upon us. You likely had a great night jamming out to either Train or The Chainsmokers and now pondering how to spend your last few hours before you jet out of Vegas.

Here are a few ideas!

1. Squeeze in a few more great sessions

2. See a demo of Watson Assistant for Hospitality

IBM and Harman International have partnered to deliver a voice-activated cognitive concierge customer experience to consumers in hotels, hospitality venues, hospitals and offices.  This solution, which is voice-activated and powered by IBM Watson IoT, can change how patients experience the hospital, how travelers interact with the things in their hotel rooms, and how employees experience a conference room.

Check out this demo from 10:30-11:00 AM PST in Think Tank A1 in the Business & AI Campus. Add to your agenda here.

3. Watch the robot arm in action

It’s your last chance to how robotics can play a key role in cognitive visual inspection. Stop by the Business and AI campus to learn how your can identify and manage product defects to reduce manufacturing labor costs, improve the process and achieve better quality. Plus, it’s just so cool to watch.

4. Did you miss something? Watch the replays.

AI is smart but even it can’t help us be in two places at the same time. If you missed out on a must-see keynote or session, there’s plenty of replays available. It’s our answer to the bothersome laws of physics.

5. Catch up on Social #Think2018 and #WatsonIot

Did you share your photos? Did you see ours? It’s not too late to catch up on social! We’ve got blogs with the highlights, an on-fire Twitter account and Facebook Live sessions featuring fascinating chats this week.

The Watson IoT twitter account is the real-time way to keep up with Think 2018

It’s never too late to join the conversation at #Think2018 and #WatsonIoT.
