A short video about the aim to have computers behave and think the way humans do in 5 years.
Cassandra Torino's curator insight, March 23, 2014 7:50 AM

In this video 5 scientist talk about cognitive computing and its possible impact within 5 years. The scientist explain to its viewers that soon enough, computers will be able to hear, feel and see the same things we do.

 

This video is useful to my research as it indicates the possibility of cognitive systems becoming one of the most important technologies over the next 5-10 years. Cognitive computing systems can become beneficial to engineers, scientist, lawyers, doctors and other professionals, by giving expert advice within a second, thus, allowing people to think more creatively. This technology could push innovations further and at a faster pace and ultimately, create a better, smarter world.

 

The only limitations of the information provided by this video is that it doesn't go into much depth about cognitive computing. However, it is easy to research and find further information about this technology. Therefore, this video is very helpful towards my research as it has introduced me to an amazing technology I will be able to talk about in my essay.
