Get Ahead in Cognitive Computing at IBM Think

Cognitive computing is an emerging area, with numerous use cases in manufacturing, education, commerce, and customer service. According to IDC, 90% of organizations will leverage cognitive computing by 2021 and 40% of digital transformation initiatives will use cognitive services by 2019.

With use cases beginning to bear fruit in success, our customers have begun to see success using cognitive. As such, IBM selected us to present at Think, their largest user conference of the year happening March 19-22 in Las Vegas.

The following are the cognitive sessions we will be leading:
