Gender diversity at IBM InterConnect

I won’t make this into a long post on the importance of addressing the issues of gender diversity, especially in our industry. I just want to make public that I, and many with me, note how well IBM succeeds in putting women experts and leaders on stage, and in the spotlight. This should be normal and therefore, this post should have been irrelevant. (Note: Yes, I see that the photos lack illustrations of racial/ethnic diversity, but I can assure you presenters on stage were of many ethnic backgrounds. It just wasn’t the point of this post.)

IBM InterConnect – Day 2-3

This is my last day at IBM InterConnect 2017. The past two days I’ve attended sessions including; developer driven innovation with Watson, using cognitive services to help fight cyberbullying, and Blockchain implementations.

For me, the most valuable learnings relate to the inner workings of the Watson services platform, for example Conversation Service, Visual Recognition, Virtual Agent, Discovery Service, Knowledge Studio, Natural Language, Retrieve and Rank, and Tone Analyzer. How this all fit together, the reference model, can be explained by organizing services into:

  • Foundational cognitive skills
  • Higher reasoning skills
  • Knowledge organization skills

… and understand how developer tooling and content tooling relate to each other. On this last day, I’m looking forward to attend the following sessions:

  • Building an Integrated AI Service Desk Agent
  • Roadmap for Next Generation Entrepreneurs
  • Humanism of Technology
  • Watson in Recruitment to Improve Candidate Quality

Below some photos to give you some idea about what it looks like during and in-between sessions!

IBM InterConnect – Day 1

First day of IBM InterConnect in Las Vegas has been very interesting. The entire event includes more than 2.000 sessions to choose from. Today, I learned much on cognitive computing and IoT, agile transformation in banking, and Watson IoT for Retail (The Connected Store).

My focus will be on artificial/augmented intelligence, machine learning, cognitive computing, API- and innovation management. IBM has significant research and insights in these topics, and have succeeded in creating platforms that are now available for pilots and implementation. I’ll spin out some of the cool stuff I see, here on the blog.
