A Data Scientist’s Take on Cognitive Computing (and more…)

Join the upcoming Leaders in Cognitive webinar, Wednesday 10/11/17 at 12:00 pm Eastern to meet Wayne Thompson, Chief Data Scientist at SAS Institute.

Wayne will tackle the confusing deep water we find ourselves in trying to navigate the proliferation of hype related to “AI” terms like weak and strong AI, cognitive computing, machine learning, and particularly deep learning. Would you know AI if you met up with it on the street? You should after you’ve heard Wayne’s perspective.

To get a sample of Wayne’s thoughts on these tools, take a look at his recent blog post:


Wayne will also share how SAS is using a variety of learning technologies with customers, the tools they are choosing to work with, and how these approaches work out in the real world. As a natural language veteran, Wayne will share ideas about the current state of natural language technologies, promises and pitfalls.
