This collection explores the impact of cognitive technologies on organizations and helps leaders make wise strategy and technology choices. Because cognitive technologies extend the power of information technology to tasks traditionally performed by humans, they can enable organizations to break prevailing trade-offs between speed, cost, and quality.
Redesigning work in an era of cognitive technologies
Cognitive technologies, a product of the field of artificial intelligence, can and will be used to eliminate jobs. But leaders face choices about how to apply cognitive technologies. These decisions will determine whether workers are marginalized or empowered, and whether their organizations are creating value or merely cutting costs.
Demystifying artificial intelligence
Artificial Intelligence still sounds more like science fiction than it does an IT investment, but it is increasingly real, and critical to the success of the Internet of Things.
Cognitive technologies: The real opportunities for business
Because cognitive technologies extend the power of information technology to tasks traditionally performed by humans, they can enable organizations to break prevailing trade-offs between speed, cost, and quality. We present a framework by which to explore where cognitive technologies can benefit your company.
Applying advanced techniques like machine learning and predictive modeling to massive, complex data sets helps amplify our intelligence for more effective decision making.
Intelligent automation: A new era of innovation
Intelligent automation—the combination of artificial intelligence and automation— is already helping companies transcend conventional performance tradeoffs to achieve unprecedented levels of efficiency and quality. Applications range from the routine to the revolutionary: from collecting, analyzing, and making decisions about textual information to guiding autonomous vehicles and advanced robots.
The thinker and the shopper
The time could be ripe for consumers and consumer products companies to embrace cognitive technologies, which can offer companies ways to deliver benefits to consumers to a greater degree than previously possible.
Cognitive technologies for health plans
New developments in cognitive technologies can help health plans use artificial intelligence to help improve cost-effectiveness, customer service, and population health.
(podcast) Redesigning work in an era of cognitive technologies
The fears about the impact on workers are justified. It’s important more than ever for people to continually refresh their skills, and to make sure they are as flexible as they can be and that they learn how to take advantage of these technologies in their work so that they can be empowered instead of replace.
