What if someone handed you a puzzle piece with flames on it, then asked you if this was "good" news or "bad" news? How would you know? Maybe it's part of an image of a cozy fireplace (good news) or maybe it's part of an image of a fire that's broken out (bad news). To better understand the importance of the puzzle piece, you need some related puzzle pieces. Until you start bringing pieces together to see how they relate, it's almost impossible to comprehend the big picture. That's context -- better understanding something by taking into account the things around it.
Context Computing is essential to making better predictions, faster. In the following video, Jeff Jonas, IBM Fellow and the Chief Scientist for Context Computing, discusses 5 things to know about Context Computing:
1. What is Context
2. The role of Context Computing
3. The most unique/difficult aspect of Context Computing
4. Why Context Computing is essential
5. The role of Context Computing in larger ecosystems
