Introduction to the Cognitive Systems Institute
The Cognitive Systems Institute Group is a collaborative effort between universities, research institutes, and IBM clients to advance the state-of-the-art in cognitive computing. The institute features resources on this website , a LinkedIn Discussion Group and a weekly Speaker Series . As research collaborators and faculty, we focus on building and evaluating cognitive assistants for every profession. The Cognitive Systems Institute centers on professional cognitive assistants that exhibit the three L’s – language, learning, and levels to augment and scale human expertise.
The programs are designed to
- help create linkages between faculty and IBM Researchers to define cognitive system grand challenges
- help faculty and their top graduate students to prepare aligned collaborative research proposals to submit to funding agencies
- explore academic interest in hosting an IBM-Researcher(s)-In-Residence at their universities, in order to accelerate collaborative research and achieve measurable grand challenge objectives
- to create and compile point of view (POV) documents on the potential impacts of cognitive systems on business and society.
Bring Watson to your research.
