My last post on cognitive computing was a backgrounder, and it stated the importance of search to any cognitive computing initiative. So, how does cognitive computing powered by search lead to digital transformation? In fact, just what is digital transformation?
What exactly is cognitive computing? Well, if you ask 10 academics or scientists, you’re likely to get 10 different answers. Look it up on Wikipedia. You’ll see that in the academic and scientific community, there is no agreed upon definition. It’s just marketing jargon. Ouch.
On the commercial side though, we may not have a precise definition for cognitive computing, but we’re very aware of its potential to help our businesses.
