The AI-Cognition Evolution: Affordable New Cloud Tools Raise your Applications’ IQ Part 3: Hijacking the Internet of Things with IBM Watson

As we increasingly experience the “Internet of Everything”, processing power is increasing in everything from watches to smartphones to computers, vehicles and devices we haven’t yet imagined. At the same time, the amount of data being collected into knowledge bases has given rise to artificial intelligence systems such as IBM’s Watson, which stunned the world by besting two unbeaten Jeopardy champions on national television.

What if every business could harness that kind of intelligence, which increasingly appears like real cognition? Now they can, without the need to invest millions in hardware and millions more in software. Thanks to the integration of Watson services and IBM Bluemix, every business can affordably access Watson’s AI to create applications that streamline business processes and slash the effort and cost to deliver the smartest of smart applications.

Attend this 3-part TechBytes series presented by Slashdot Media and sponsored by IBM to hear inventor and industry expert Marek Sadowski discuss three key areas:

  • Taking Cognitive Computing to the Next Level with AI and IBM Watson
  • How IBM Watson and AI will Influence Industries Worldwide
  • Hijacking the Internet of Things with IBM Watson

Register now for these events and be one of the first to learn how to adapt the world’s leading AI platforms with simple to implement cloud tools.

About the presenter:

Marek Sadowski is a mobile full stack developer advocate, a robotics startup founder and an entrepreneur, who moved to Silicon Valley to promote IoT and robotics solutions driven by AI and Cloud. He shows live demos on how IoT and robots could get cognitive with IBM Watson.
