Tech talk on cognitive applications

I’m giving a tech talk on cognitive application development this coming Tuesday:

“Applied artificial intelligence”: Getting started with cognitive application development

It’s meant to be a part of a set of talks we started last year on artificial intelligence—how do you actually begin to use these cognitive services in web apps, mobile apps—and it’s aimed at beginners and near-beginners.

The pictures below are my effort to frame the demo: Just as we know now that the brain is not a single, thinking organ but a choreographed set of cognitive skills, Watson is not a single “artificial intelligence” but a set of computational services. Which means that now, the way that Watson is presented and interacted with and marketed is more accurate: The cognitive services available in the Watson Developer Cloud are what it always was!

Anyway, it’s Tuesday, August 16th, 12 to 1 at tekMountain.com. I’ll post slides here, notes, a video if it’s made.
