Value Vector: The Cognitive Explosion, Ethics and How Work Is Changing - Digital Workforce Summit impressions

Insights Advisory Talent


We’re on the cusp of massive changes powered by Cognitive Computing, reaching across nearly every industry and occupation. Cognitive Computing broadly includes Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence – systems that are able to learn and improve on their own without human intervention. The declining costs of cognitive-friendly GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) and FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) make it increasingly practical to embed cognitive capabilities into connected edge devices such as cameras, drones, gateways, IoT appliances, automobiles and wind turbines. It follows that as technological capabilities increase, the presence of technology in our everyday life is inevitable, leading to a greater focus on the human machine interface.

Momenta recently attended the Digital Workforce Summit in New York, hosted by IPSoft, to focus on the uses of AI, the market opportunities and challenges. Here are some of the insights on offer and how Cognitive Computing is changing and challenging Connected Industry.
