In 2011, Watson was the first computer system to win Jeopardy!, outsmarting former champs Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Today this IBM computer system’s cognitive computing solution is changing the way businesses operate.

On November 10, 2016, BCLC and TRU present the latest edition of the Technology and Innovation Series that will dive into how the partnership between people and self-learning computers is enhancing the way we do business to be faster, more responsive and precise.

Like Watson, cognitive computing and its capabilities are taking analytics to the next level and fundamentally changing how systems are built, and the way we conduct business. Join Caroline Ong, Analytics and Cognitive Leader from IBM Canada’s Global Business Services as she talks about how Watson and IBM’s latest cognitive solution, is using artificial intelligence to transform industries from healthcare, education, professional sports to fashion and even hospitality, by creating new forms of customer engagement, revolutionizing business value and ultimately changing how businesses operate.

Caroline Ong leads the strategic area of Cognitive and Analytics Solutions for IBM Global Business Services that includes the Watson delivery team and technologies.
