Interested in Watson and the supercomputer’s future? Then Don’t miss this webinar Thursday, June 13, 2013, at 1 pm ET/12 noon CT/11 am MT/10 am PT/5 pm GMT.
In 2011, IBM introduced Watson, a computer system capable of quickly and precisely answering natural language questions with accurate confidence estimation. In February of that year, Watson won a victory against the world’s best Jeopardy! players in a formal contest that was aired on national television.
That public performance heralded a future where we can efficiently tap into the wealth of knowledge buried in text and other unstructured data sources. IBM is now exploring new applications of the Watson technology including clinical decision support in healthcare.
Thursday’s webinar will cover:
Architecture of the Watson Question Answering System
Using the Apache UIMA framework for building natural language processing systems
How IBM is addressing new challenges for Watson in the healthcare domain
Presenters are Adam Lally, Senior Technical Staff Member in the Watson Technologies department at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center; and Dr. Will Tracz, Lockheed Martin Fellow Emeritus and Chair of ACM SIGSOFT. Learn more and register.
IBM recently won a video-making contest by teaming with MOFILM, an organization that helps enable film-makers to create videos for big brands and social causes. Participants were charged with creating films that showcased the customer in context. Entries were voted on, via Twitter, by the audience at the Smarter Commerce Global Summit Nashville.
And the winner is…cookies! Check out the winning IBM video on how Smarter Commerce is working in the world. Here’s a hint: it’s all about the right approach:

The tool’s new online features can help users not only to locate the answers to known problems, but also to open a ticket faster and more easily. In fact, the tool enables users to summarize the problem, with details, and submit it – all through one single process. This means that IBM can perform a review of problem before contacting the user, and to involve other technical resources to help resolve more complex problems if necessary.
Attend this upcoming education to get the details you need on using these great new features of IBM Online Support. Let us help you succeed faster!
Water is one of our most essential resources. Of all the water on Earth, only 1 percent can be used by ecosystems and people. As the world’s population increases to an estimated 8 billion in 2025, the demand for water will rise too.
It’s time we get smarter about water.
Join in the Smarter Friday chat on World Water Day, March 22, as IBM Smarter Water Architect Eoin Lane discusses how technology can help us with water: http://on.fb.me/11iZe4q
