IBM Watson's Top 5 Innovation Predictions for Next Five Years

IBM Watson's Top 5 Innovation Predictions for Next Five Years | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it
IBM's predictions all involve big data and using computing to glean intelligence from vast systems. We discuss them with IBM's research boss.


Marty Note

Interesting predictions from IBM for the next five years. They are risk-less enough (for the most part) except for the "buy local" trend. I agree and disagree.

IBM has couched this prediction by saying technology will come to you. Duh, mobile and GPS are already doing that. They are also pointing out the vastly distributed networks being pioneered by Amazon and others for same day shipping (thus: even non-local feels and acts local).

I agree with the "super network theory" behind the trend even if the way it’s presented seems inaccurate and controversial. Really this trend is just SoLoMo (Social, Local, Mobile) with some "super networking" behind it.

The key to making predictions like this is to make them broad enough some victory can be claimed no matter what happens. Still an interesting read from the Watson boys.

Most interesting may be how they are trying to make Watson a brand with real meaning and value. Its one thing to win on Jeopardy its quite another to figure out how to help real B2B and B2C websites make more conversions in near real time. That trick would be very cool :).M

  • Buying local will beat online.
  • Doctors will use your DNA to keep you well.
  • A digital guardian will protect you online.
  • The city will help you live in it.

This is an interesting article about IBM's future over the next 5 years and explains the we learn will change in the future. It says teaching will become more customised based on compiled data about the student.

Social Media Infographic Inspired by Oracle - Curagami

Social Media Infographic Inspired by Oracle - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Social Media Marketing - Oracle Gets It Do You?

Oracle's white papers, linked from this Curagami post, inspired us to create an infographic. Oracle may be the biggest vendor we know of that gets the emotional, connective and conversational nature of social media marketing. 

Oracle only has half the evolving world as we see it - they are still missing community and gamification. We hope it takes Oracle at least a year to catch up since they are a bellwether for everyone else. 

Great reads and seeing Oracle understand this much about how social marketing really works should create a sense of urgency. If Oracle is HERE now can the world be far behind on community and then community shock in your business category? 

Answer: No. 

BTW, link at the bottom of the infographic goes to Oracles landing page. Our page featuring this infographic is here: http://www.curagami.com/social-media-infographic/
