Digital Transformation - Overview
Daniel Yellin, PhD,VP Mobile, IBM Cloud, Distinguished Engineer, Director, Israel Software Lab
Companies all over the world are intent on adapting to the new digital world, attracting business through digital channels, providing new online products and services, and creating or participating in new Internet-wide ecosystems. This requires both cultural change within the organization, as well as creating a digital enterprise platform to interact with customers, partners, and employees. We briefly describe the driving forces for digital transformation, and the technologies that form the basis of emerging digital platforms.

Digital is the new holy grail.

Enabling Digital Transformation through Conversational Interactions
Segev Wasserkrug, Ph.D., Watson Assistant Solutions Lead Architect, Senior Technical Staff Member, Cognitive IoT & BAO Leader, IBM Research Lab
Conversational systems are not only a much more convenient way for us to interact with computer systems, but can significantly transform the effectiveness and efficiency with which we interact with such systems. They allow us to quickly, easily and naturally navigate through complex processes, sift through huge amounts of data to obtain insights meaningful to us, and easily perform everyday tasks. However, to truly come into their own, these systems should be personalized to us, proactive, and be able to incorporate complex reasoning tasks.
In this talk, through real world stories and examples, I will present how IBM's set of products, services, and research capabilities are set to enable such conversationally driven transformation. I will provide details on the advanced proactive, personalization, and reasoning features - transforming both personal and business interactions.
