Watson meets KM ... elementary.

IBM Watson represents a new class of industry-specific analytic solutions that leverages deep content analysis and evidence-based reasoning to accelerate and improve decisions, reduce operational costs and optimize outcomes. Watson accomplishes all this based on a set of transformational technologies which leverage natural language, hypothesis generation and evidence-based learning. Watson is about bringing a unique combination of capabilities together in a way that's never been done before, resulting in a fundamental change in the way decisions are made. In this session, Malcolm will discuss the history of Watson, and how it has progressed from debuting on Jeopardy! to the being deployed in commercial solutions.

Debora Elkin, Technical Lead, Watson ANZ Centre of Competency at IBM.

Debora Elkin has over 20 years experience working in the IT industry in a variety of technical pre-sales and consulting roles encompassing almost all aspects of systems architecture, design and development. She has participated in, as well as led, several large projects in the finance, telecommunications and government industries, where she architected, designed and implemented innovative solutions.

She recently joined IBM as Technical Lead, Watson ANZ Centre of Competence, where she architects and delivers solutions based on standard and emerging cognitive technologies

    I am so sorry for the late cancellation. An uncle is in hospital for pneumonia and I am going to visit him.

    Sadly, I now have to be up country on this evening. I am very sorry about this. Not sure if you might even do a google hangout of session. Might be too hard.

    Why am I having so much trouble being available for these meetings? I really want to come but will be on my way to Tasmania to host a multinational program evaluation workshop. I look forward to that but I regret missing the KMLF

    Really really upset that I wont be able to be at this session. I have an interstate business commitment which has arisen. Thank you so much Peter for organising such an interesting presenter.

    Sounds like an interesting conversation - sorry I won't be able to make it in person. I'm interstate on that date.

    Peter, This looks like a fascinating topic - as I have been watching Watson from afar as a very interesting case study. I think this presentation followed with a more humble in scale discussion in September (I understand this will be my colleague from the eSRC at the University of Melbourne) will implicitly highlight some of the most vexed questions about the relationship between AI, KM and cognitive theory, distributed intelligence and the role of human interpretative intelligence areas such as IM, records management, archival management and the like.

    I sincerely hope I can get there. Thanks!!

    I look forward to gaining an understanding of how Watson is changing KM in the healthcare and other fields. Hope to see you all there.

      Peter, thanks for organising this event with Malcolm Holden. I know people have been waiting for this particular topic.
