Two of the most prolific authors I know have just published their latest:
by Judith Hurwitz, Marcia Kauffman, and Adrian Bowles.
I've met Judith and Marcia many times and am always happy to promote their books. This one is about cognitive computing which is a technique that allows humans and computers to collaborate in order to gain insights and knowledge from data by uncovering patterns and anomalies.
As I read in the book "Zero to One" by Peter Thiel, big data is dumb data unless people are using computers as tools to gain the insights that can be found in data.
The book, "Cognitive Computing and Big Data Analytics" explains the underlying technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing, and big data analytics. It then demonstrates how you can use these technologies to transform your dumb data to smart data.
Detailed case histories from the financial, healthcare, and manufacturing industries, are presented with step-by-step examinations of the design and testing of cognitive systems. You'll benefit from the expert perspectives of of the authors and the clients they work with.
IBM Watson is perhaps the most popular cognitive computing platform, and you'll be happy to know that this book goes into detail about how IBM Watson has influenced the development of cognitive computing.
You can pick up this book at the IBM InterConnect Conference. Also, be sure to attend Judith's talk and have her sign your copy of the book. She'll be speaking at the Expo Cloud Theatre on Tuesday, February 24 from 6-6:30 pm (Vegas time).
Judith and Marcia: Congratulations on your latest book. If I'm able to attend the conference this year, I'll be first in line for your book!!
