Topic I: Status of AI Development

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is getting hot in many fields such as engineering and investment. IBM has been researching, developing and investing in AI technology for more than 50 years. The public became aware of a major advance in 2011, when IBM Watson won the historic Jeopardy! Exhibition on prime time television. Since that time, the company has advanced and scaled the Watson platform, and applied it to various industries, including healthcare, finance, commerce, education, security, and the Internet of Things. IBM has been deeply committed to this technology, and believe strongly in its potential to benefit society, as well as transform our personal and professional lives.
In this talk, IBM’s vision on AI and Cognitive Computing, along with the cognitive system of IBM Watson, will be introduced and discussed, as well as IBM’s responses to the White House Query about future AI policies.
