Where's Watson Headed Now... 

Human Implications of the Cognitive Enterprise: How Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cognitive Technologies Impact the Workplace

Remember Watson, the IBM computer who played Jeopardy, and introduced Artificial Intelligence (AI) to the public?  What is happening now?  How has AI evolved and how is it impacting the workplace?   We are on the cusp of the next big shift in “cognitive technologies” that can affect the way businesses operate and choose to evolve their current processes.  

This AI wave shift will affect everyone, as all types of businesses may see benefits / perils from the innovative technologies.  How will this affect you and your loved ones?  New talents may come to the forefront and individuals will see new ways to distinguish themselves.  This presentation will focus on describing these new “cognitive technologies” and the human implications associated with them.   IBM is at the forefront of these world changers and we’re privileged to learn about them from one of IBM’s leading practitioners, Michael Ricci. 

Mr. Ricci is a Senior Client Partner for IBM’s Global Business Services.  He has been a leader in many areas, recently focusing on the Life Sciences sector, with clients including Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bayer, and Wyeth.  He has led global initiatives across the value chain expanding IBM’s business partnerships.  Mr. Ricci has also led in the development of IBM’s primary methods and tools for People and Change Management methodology in the US, which are crucial as we look to the future.
