Peter Fingar: The Cognitive Computing Era is Upon Us
Business-tech author details how cognitive systems wield a power like we've never seen and could soon be tending to our agriculture, industry, and service needs
The era of cognitive systems is dawning and building on today’s computer programming era. All machines, for now, require programming, and by definition programming does not allow for alternate scenarios that have not been programmed. To allow alternating outcomes would require going up a level, creating a self-learning Artificial Intelligence (AI) system. Via biomimicry and neuroscience, cognitive computing does this, taking computing concepts to a whole new level.
