Q5: How can app developers most effectively add cognitive smarts to their code?
Zachary Walchuk
APIs keep you from having to build from scratch, we've got a suite of them here: http://www.ibm.com/w...
Sonya Hansen
Start small. Pick one API and test it out. Use an App Starter Kit https://www.ibm.com/... and don't feel like you have to start from scratch. There are lots of resources to help.
Prakash Mohapatra
https://www.ibm.com/... there are many resources available that can be used
jameskobielus
App developers ca add cognitive smarts to their code by tapping into the APIs provided by Watson and other cognitive back-end cloud services.
jameskobielus
App developers can add cognitive smarts to their code by tapping into rich libraries of NLP, sentiment analysis, image recognition, and other cognitive algorithms on their development platform, which is increasingly a cloud service such as Watson.
Prakash Mohapatra

Q2: What major developments do you anticipate in the cognitive era?
jameskobielus
Cognitive chatbots are a huge focus right now in app development. Check out my recent post on this topic: https://www.linkedin...
jameskobielus
Cognitive computing is being embedded in the Internet of Things. Here's a recent KDNuggets post by me on that trend: http://www.kdnuggets...
Sonya Hansen
+1 to @jameskobielus We're seeing a lot of innovation w/ #chatbots. Also, virtual agents that automate business to consumer interactions are gaining more and more traction. Customers & businesses seek that seamless experience more than ever.
Louis T Cherian
A combination of artificial intelligence and machine-learning algorithms, in an approach which attempts to reproduce the behaviour of the human brain.
Zachary Walchuk
The ability to quickly and easily customize to specific domains - already possible, but will get better and better
jameskobielus
Cognitive computing, in the form of deep learning algorithms, is a key enabler for self-driving cars. Here's a post by me on that trend: https://www.linkedin...

Here's my slideshare from early this year on trends in cognitive analytics: http://www.ibmbigdat...

nature language interfaces to everyday objects will change the way we do things
{([ Ryan Boyles ])}
the @IBMIoT team will be showing how natural language ux works with TVs at #IFA16 this weekend
Prakash Mohapatra
digital intelligence will transform the way business users will unleash the hidden insights on consumer and product trends from all forms of data, specifically images, news, social, videos etc

Q1: What does cognitive mean to you? #ibmwow
jameskobielus
Cognitive is the capability of systems to accelerate, enhance, emulate, and automate functions that we normally associate with human thinking.
Sonya Hansen
To me a cognitive system is one that understands, reasons and learns and interacts with the data and world around it. #ibmwow
jameskobielus
Cognitive computing refers to intelligent systems that leverage artificial intelligence and big data to do pattern recognition, face recognition, voice recognition, emotion analytics, and other high-level cognitive functions.
Stefano Ronchi
A caracteristic of cognitive I wuold add is the interaction with humans and laerning capability behind @ jamesKobelieous @ibmwow
Zachary Walchuk
Cognitive systems are designed to work with humans, getting insights from the same types of data we can naturally understand - text, images, audio
Louis T Cherian
Cognitive computing to me means self-learning systems
{([ Ryan Boyles ])}
cognitive computing has the potential to change peoples lives by transforming the way they interact with each other and the world through connected things
jameskobielus
Many cognitive systems use unsupervised learning to automate sensing and detection of deep patterns and nuances in complex data sets. Machine learning helps cognitive systems understand new concepts.
Zachary Walchuk
Interacting with people is key - these are trained systems, not programmed
Prakash Mohapatra
a tools which makes life easy for business users to uncover insights on their business which no other traditional intelligence tool can do. A tool which understand the need of user, learns and helps to interact with machine in natural way
IBM World of Watson
Q4: How is cognitive computing changing best practices in enterprise app development?
Sonya Hansen
One of the things that stands out is that developers are spending less time digging through data and more time on actually using it.
Zachary Walchuk
@sonya_hansen Agreed, we're seeing a lot of tools that help pull up insights from the data, sometimes answering questions you didn't even know you had
Louis T Cherian
Traditional model of logic and code taking precedence over data is now changing. Now, applications lead with data that dictates where the logic should go.
jameskobielus
Cognitive computing is changing best practices in enterprise app dev by requiring coders, data scientists, and subject matter experts to collaborate in ongoing dev of the core IP: statistical, data-driven machine-learning algorithms
jameskobielus
Cognitive computing is ramping up the need for ongoing testing and refinement of data-driven algorithms through sourcing of training data from myriad sources, including crowdsourcing networks.
jameskobielus
Here's my recent KDNuggets column on pattern curators of the cognitive era, and their critical importance in this new app dev paradigm: http://www.kdnuggets...
Stefano Ronchi
Chatbots for sure is a intriguing way to interact and commnicate in a strctured and guided way #ibmwow
Prakash Mohapatra
#ibmwow that's right as per analyst conversational commerce is the next big thing for Retail and CPG companies to deliver hyper-personalization experience
jameskobielus
Consumers, especially millennials, are coming to expect intelligent cognitive chatbots. The speed, quality, and accuracy of chatbots answers continues to improve, thanks to advances in Watson and other cognitive services.
Prakash Mohapatra
@jameskobielus here is simple example how IBM delivered the Gift Concierge http://www.mobilecom...

Q11: What are you most looking forward to at IBM World of Watson?
Prakash Mohapatra
experiencing the real life example how man and machine interaction is transforming the business.
jameskobielus
Sunrise in Vegas. After that, the buzz of the first day keynote. After that, pretty much everything else.
Sonya Hansen
I'm really excited that we will have a concourse full of things built with Watson that people will be able to see, hear, touch, etc. And the dev area will have a Beer Tasting App using Watson. Can't complain about that!
Prakash Mohapatra
for example, infact the secret to faster growth and profitability lies in how soon retailers adopt cognitive- and artificial-intelligence-based marketing, commerce and supply chain solutions to unleash the hidden business insights from their data.
Stefano Ronchi
practical experience, even simple but real
Prakash Mohapatra

We have a full roster of industry influencers, analysts, and other experts participating in WoW this year. The conversations are always my chief takeaway. I learn tons. This will be my 11th straight IoD/Insight/Wow.

Q6: How should app developers and data scientists collaborate on cognitive projects?
Zachary Walchuk
App developers set the goal: why do we need the data? Data scientists find appropriate data sources to fit the goal, and make sure the trained system is delivering appropriately
Prakash Mohapatra
I feel the best way to get started in cognitive projects to follow IBM Watson Developer Community https://developer.ib...
Stefano Ronchi
I think a soft facilitator would come from personal attitude and behaviour: curious, versatile people.
jameskobielus
Having a common integrated development environment, such as IBM Data Science Experience, is one key enabler for collab between data scientists and app developers.
jameskobielus
Another key to collaboration is for app developers and data scientists to have a common learning grounding in cognitive algorithms and methodologies, especially supervised learning.
jameskobielus
Yet another key to collaboration is for app developers and data scientists to be embedded in strategic projects driving key business initiatives.

there is a strong human element needed for AI to help people and not just automate things based on rules
