Our goal is simple. We want to collectively develop into Cognitive Computing (CC) experts. To do this will require four skills: (1) Cognitive Science, (2) Data Science, (3) knowledge of a proven CC implementation method, and (4) CC Business Development. In short, we will be defining and detailing the specific skills needed to be competent. Therefore, if you feel that Cognitive Computing system design, development, and implementation is a strategic part of your career future, then come join our efforts. This is a we go, not an ego group. If you share our vision, and will work to help, then you are most welcomed; regardless of the current CC skill level. - Gary Deines on May 5, 2014.
