Title: Influence of Big Data in the era of Cognitive Computing

Abstract: The combination of Big Data and modern computing systems has forever revolutionized the field of Cognitive Computing. Neural network and other cognitive models can now be trained to a level of sophistication that simply was not possible just a few years ago. This has led to the deployment of artificial intelligence in real business situations, to the great benefit of both customers and corporations. This talk will focus on the impact of Big Data in cognitive solutions for the enterprise, and on the system architectures that help accelerate computing in the cognitive era. We will look at some real life example applications and the effects of artificial intelligence on computing architectures of the future.
