TED: Cognitive Computing



in today's world the volume of unstructured information is growing at an enormous rate we really need better technologies to help make sense of it and make better decisions at IBM we're seeing a new era of computing starting with the tabulating era then to the programmable computer era and now cognitive computing systems which expand the boundaries of human cognition becomes smarter with use and have a much more natural interaction between the human and the computer in the area of artificial intelligence there were a lot of amazing ideas but computational capabilities just weren't ready for them Watson suddenly makes some of these crazy ideas possible at the core we're trying to leverage knowledge the way humans record and communicated natural human language and in particular text its initial introduction to the world was as a competitor on the Jeopardy quiz show in the healthcare space were approaching it as a support tool to expand the physicians cognitive boundaries by giving them deeper access to much larger volumes of information the history associated with the patient the journal articles clinical results best practice guidelines etc that volume of content is doubling every 5 years physicians have precious little time to keep up with everything a system like Watson can leverage the computer's ability to deal with huge volumes of data understand the knowledge that's contained within this data apply it to the problem that the physician is trying to solve give them different alternatives to consider and in particular the underlying evidence that supports those halte that basic problem-solving pattern applies to a wide variety of industries any area where you have complex problems that you're trying to solve were adapting the computer technology can work better with the way humans want to work so that it's a more natural relationship between the human in the computer

    nonsensical bs. ai won't come to be it seems unless i do it. But i have to do it for free? I could do it. I want to do it. but you will just steal it. make more then you need while I struggle to survive. While I let my dreams go. I feel I do all the work. Why not just for once you try to do something too.

    I wonder how Watson prioritizes text sources, such as dictionaries arduously assembled by human beings (like WordNet), and from where else an NLP bot like Watson might find classification and knowledgebase-friendly definitions, such as encyclopedias or even blog content. It seems like every little NLP experiment out there today uses Wordnet… I'd hate to have to assemble a dictionary or even trust the average of published dictionaries.

    Having wiki'd Ockham's razor I don't think science is "being limited to only the simplest logic". Ockham's razor is a helper along a path of reasoning, not a provider of an end all, be all answer.

    Thanks for making me think, it was fun.
