Cognitive Computing

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>What does Cognitive Computing mean ?

Cognitive Computing (CC) describes technologies that mimic the way the human mind works, with the goal of improving human decision making. CC is based on the science of artificial intelligence and signal processing. The term includes machine learning, logical reasoning, speech and object recognition, and human-computer interaction, among others.

Properties of cognitive systems

  • Adaptive: Cognitive systems can learn as information, goals, and requirements change. They can deal with ambiguity and unpredictability.
  • Interactive: Cognitive systems can interact well with people, allowing users to easily communicate their requirements. They can also interact with other computers and Cloud services and obtain information from the Internet, for example.
  • Iterative and stateful: CC systems can be helpful in narrowing down a problem by asking questions or finding additional sources of input when a problem statement is ambiguous or incomplete. They can “remember” previous interactions in a process and use information from them in the future.
  • Contextual: Cognitive Computing systems can recognize contextual elements in input data such as meaning, time, location, user profiles, tasks, and goals. They can draw on multiple sources of information, including structured and unstructured digital information as well as sensory input (visual, gestural, auditory).
