Think about what is happening in your inbox right now. You and the other talented people around you are being overwhelmed in an information rich, no-question-can’t-be-asked, attention-compressed world. We are transitioning from a “what do I know” to a “what can I share” culture, and all of that insight and knowledge is just one click away. This is a powerful thing as long as it doesn’t paralyze you. In this keynote, IBM's Louis Richardson examined the impact this is having on our businesses and how the new era of cognitive computing is changing the way we live and work. He also discussed how we can shift from our current ways of working to behaviors and practices that respect our time and talent, as well as how cognitive systems are augmenting our search for knowledge and answers.
