Why Cognition-as-a-Service is the next operating system battlefield

Competition between CaaS platforms will enable smarter and more helpful products, from our phones to our homes.

 

App developers will soon need to choose which CaaS ecosystem to build on — Google, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, or maybe even Wolfram’s new Wolfram Language ecosystem.

In the long-run however, a more vendor neutral cognition platform may emerge as the winner: one that is more like Amazon Web Services in that it just provides the underlying service and doesn’t compete with third-party apps that use it. This could come from Amazon, or Wolfram perhaps. CaaS platforms may eventually even be open-sourced and made widely available — perhaps via a Linux equivalent for the cognitive operating system era that might borrow from many of the original ideas and standards of the Semantic Web.

A startup called Kaggle tries to bring smart people to knotty problems.

 

Goldbloom created "a website where data scientists could compete to win cash in their spare time by solving such problems for companies. He didn’t know much about programming, so he taught himself to code and built the website in his bedroom in Melbourne, Australia.

Another use of competition and networking to find solutions.
