Intro: The cognitive computing revolution


This session will provide a view on the IBM research agenda for artificial intelligence. It will cover some of IBM’s rich history with AI, why we are making so much progress now, and what the future has in store. You will for example learn how different brain inspired accelerators will address the insatiable need for more compute power. We will end with what may very well become the biggest technological breakthrough in our lifetime: universal quantum computing.
