Hi Microsoft Cognitive Computers (MCC),
IBM with Watson and BlueMix has taken the lead in Cognitive Computing. Our goal, as Microsoft experts, is to catch up. This is our first meeting. The room is limited to 40 people and sign-ups will be on a first-quality-come basis. You must pre-register. You must be technical talented.
This is a very, very technical meeting. We are looking for a group to develop an open-source alternative to Watson. Some call this Watson Jr. I prefer to call it Gates.
You must be a programmer to attend. Your should have a working knowledge of cognition, NLP, Data Analytics, AI, Decision Support, Adaptive Pages, etc. This task will not be easy. The universal cognitive algorithm is elusive.
CC is coming. It is the next step beyond Big Data. Think of it as "applied Big Data."
If you believe that applications will become more "cognitive" in the future, come join in our collective efforts to create an open source solution. The goal is to make it better than the Watson BlueMix offering.
I hope to see a great deal of talent show up. -g
