While we are still in the early days of cognitive computing and artificial intelligence, their impact is already being felt across a variety of industries, including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, defense, and education.

To shine a spotlight on the tools and technologies necessary to succeed with cognitive technologies as well as the moral and ethical questions that must be dealt with, this year Data Summit 2018 is launching the Cognitive Computing Summit, a 2-day immersion into the cognitive computing use cases, strategies, and technologies that every organization should know about now. 

Data Summit and the Cognitive Computing Summit will take place May 22 - 23, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Boston.

In line with the expanded focus on cognitive computing, Data Summit 2018 will also feature a keynote by Hadley Reynolds, co-founder, Cognitive Computing Consortium, who will present an open reference framework jointly developed with Babson College’s technology management program. The framework gives executives and operating managers a tool to characterize the impact and behav­iors of potential AI applications. Beyond impacts and behaviors, the framework integrates profiles of skills and resources required to effectively execute cognitive tasks.

The worldwide cognitive systems and artificial intelligence revenue has been forecast to grow beyond $47 billion in 2020 by IDC and promises to change how we live and work dramatically. However, the building of cognitive systems and applications that can perform specific, humanlike tasks in an intelligent way is far from easy. It requires complex connections to multiple data sources, processing power and storage networks that can cost-effectively support the high-speed exploration of huge volumes of data, and the incorporation of various analytics and machine learning techniques to deliver insights that can be acted upon—not to mention the availability of highly accurate data from the start.

"We are very excited to introduce a new conference on cognitive computing to take place in Boston May 22-23, 2018. The Cognitive Computing Summit recognizes the growing importance of technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, deep learning, and cognitive search, that impact a growing number of industries. We'll also look at the ramifications of cognitive computing on security and consider the ethical use of new technologies," said Marydee Ojala, conference program director, Information Today, Inc.

Designed for chief information officers, chief data officers, data scientists, data engineers, enterprise architects, systems architects, application developers, and tech-savvy business leaders, the new Cognitive Computing Summit will tackle the spectrum of difficult questions and considerations that cognitive computing is sure to introduce. Attend Cognitive Computing Summit to learn about the leading use cases, strategies, and technologies that every organization should know about.

Registration is now open for Data Summit 2018 presented by DBTA and Big Data Quarterly.

Registration for the Cognitive Computing Summit is included in the Data Summit registration, or attendees can register separately for the Cognitive Computing Summit. Information on registration options is available at http://cognitive-computing-summit.com/2018/default.aspx.

Data Summit and the Cognitive Computing Summit will take place May 22 - 23, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Boston.
