IBM Watson goes to work, real life examples behind the hype
Laurent Boes - Disruptive Technologies Strategist, IBM Benelux
Since the famous victory of IBM Watson in the Jeopardy game, the technology has gone to work. Cognitive computing has found its way into the Board rooms of several Industry leading companies and small startups, changing the way these organisations think and leverage the vast amount of unstructured data that is being created every day.
Experts will not be able to keep their credibility and edge if they are not supported by cognitive systems that help them cope with vast amounts of very valuable information.
This session gives you a small intro on IBM Watson, but focusses on real life use cases and companies that are in the market today with Watson in different industries and for different company sizes.



Watson Analytics: A new way to work in the new Insight economy
Peter D'Haeyer- Business Analytics Specialty Architect and Watson Analytics Evangelist, IBM
Watson's Cognitive intelligence is ushering us into a new era of computing.
Business users want a consumer-like experience to use analytics and data to pursue ideas, get answers to all types of questions, make predictions, and communicate compelling recommendations without needing help from anyone. However, they are hampered by the usability of analytics tools, access to data and dependency on others – both IT to provide the infrastructure and data scientists to provide the analytical expertise. With Watson Analytics, data-driven decisions can now be an essential, daily and interesting activity for business people.
Watson Analytics speaks the language of your business. Simply type in what you would like to see and Watson Analytics produces comprehensive results that explain why things happened and what's likely to happen, all in the familiar terms of your business.
Watch the live demo and learn how you can subscribe to the freemium version of Watson Analytics.
