Within the last 20 years, Cognitive Scientists have uncovered how the mind works. We now know how boutons (pre-synaptic buttons) ideate (structure a hierarchy of life sustaining ideas) for the individual and collective good of human beings.
In short, there is a mechanics of mind that can now be automated.
The goal of a Cognitive Computing expert is to know how the mind works so that you can design and program more affective (influential) business systems. Our group meets to discuss, define and certify advanced CC concepts, methods and people.
Cognitive Computing is the next wave because it develops more useful computer systems. If you would like to learn more, attend our next meeting, here in Seattle.
