Can you now define Cognitive Computing?

Cognitive Computing (CC) is software that models how boutons ideate. That means CC software senses, learns, remembers, and adapts to the needs of individuals. In this way CC software is more productive.

What IT design and development skills do you now have?

In the beginning, I programmed in Cobol. Now I conceive and design cognitive-based, online computer systems; primarily in Java. In addition, I lead technical teams of creative people. Technically my best skill is combining Big Data analytics (the learning part) with multi-mediated TCP/IP-based application system deployment (the synthetic part), specifically designed to affect the behavior of a targeted audience. Over half of my time is spent in educating and certifying managers and programmers in the field of Cognitive Computing.

Why do you want to become certified in Cognitive Computing?

Cognitive Computing is the future of all system development because it is more useful. One size does not fit all. CC software adapts to better serve the real needs of a targeted audience. CC Certification, based on peer review, helps to make our industry more professional.

Can you and are you willing to teach others in our group?

Yes. I am good at both writing textbooks and teaching others.

We generally meet once per month at 6:30PM in Seattle. Is this convenient for you?

Yes, this is a convenient time for me to tele-meet. I will be a remote (from Boston) viewing and participating from the “Cognitive Computing Experts” Google+ site using the Hangouts video conferencing software.


My name is Gary Deines. I am a Cognitive Scientists of long standing (Cornell 1973) and have 30 years of computer system design and development using the cognitive feedback loop. Currently, I am a Director of Hadoop Nation, Inc., in Boston, MA.
