Gaining Business Insights Through Cognitive Computing

About State of Technology:  With the exponential growth of data being generated by the Internet of Things, business are faced with the challenge of not only collecting, but curating that data to derive insights into their products, services and customers.  In addition, this conference explored how technology is being leveraged to interpret the flow of data, respond immediately to feedback and make real-time decisions to stay ahead of the competition.  Breakout sessions focused on specific technologies and industries where cognitive computing has made an impact. View full list of breakout sessions and speakers here.
