Keynote – Things that think: the rise of cognitive IoT business

Session Abstract:

IoT Slam Virtual Internet of Things Conference - IBMThe Internet of Things (IoT) is generating a sea of valuable data that promises to unveil hidden meaning beyond the limits of human thinking. While an exciting prospect, what if systems were designed to augment our own intelligence – helping us make smarter decisions? Enter the era of the Cognitive IoT, where machines can analyze the remaining 80% of data left untouched by today’s systems and learn from their interactions with both the data and people. The next generation of cognitive startups will get insights quicker, scale bigger, be more competitive and really, truly change the world. In this talk, IBM General Manager Sandy Carter will show you three ways that companies are embedding cognitive IoT into their companies to acquire new customers, grow their ecosystems, and create one-of-a-kind customer experiences.
