EVENT: Cognitive Computing For Utilities

Cognitive Computing For Utilities

This talk focuses on a cognitive computing approach to handle common problems within utilities, concentrating on utility operations and exploring the concept of using cognitive models and the underlying technologies that support it. I will discuss such topics as big data, analytics, sensing and the Internet of Things (IoT), along with the cognitive modeling schema.In addition, I will present examples of business problems that could utilize cognitive computing capabilities, along with issues and challenges to this type of approach.
