Join Us for an In-Depth Look at Cognitive Computing

Cognitive computing is a rapidly evolving technology that holds the potential to reshape how work gets done, how businesses grow and how markets and industries evolve. IBM Watson combines natural language processing, machine learning and real-time computing power to sift through massive amounts of unstructured data-documents, emails, journals, social posts and more – to answer questions fast. Like humans, Watson learns from experience and instruction.

Mr. Dane Poeske is an IBM Watson global industry leader for the Consumer Products & Retail industry working with consumer products goods, distribution, agriculture, fashion and retail clients across the globe. His primary focus is on developing the new cognitive solutions including analytics and Watson products and solutions.
