Great IBM CSIG (Cognitive System Institute Group) talk this morning. Slides / video should be available soon.
Title: Artificial Intelligence - How Developers Benefit Today
Abstract: As artificial intelligence systems grow in capabilities and knowledge industries are putting them to good use. We will discuss how developers can also begin to take advantage of these artificial intelligence systems to improve their productivity and/or augment their applications. See http://cognitive-science.info/
Fascinating to see that IBM Watson is focusing on bringing companies together in financial information sharing - for example, IBM-Apple - on what look like computerized trading boards, for example. (It's interesting to think that one might be able to buy and sell shares in groups of companies, for specific reasons).
World University and School would like to be in each of all ~200 nation states - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States - as major online CC-4 OpenCourseWare-centric universities for online Bachelor, Ph.D., Law, M.D. and I.B. high school degrees. And World University and School is planning to be in each of all 7,097 living languages, each a wiki school for open teaching and learning.
The WUaS Corporation (e.g. @WUaSPress) seeks, when we go public, to be listed on each of all ~200 countries' stock exchanges (ticker symbol "WUaS"? or similar), and in their official / main languages, and for our law students and computer science students (in each countries' official languages) to code for some of this. WUaS Law, online in each nation state, would also like to learn how to list companies on all stock exchanges in all ~200 countries' official languages, so our law graduates, for example, can eventually help with this.
WUaS is also planning to develop a CryptoCurrency with blockchain, and perhaps also with PLANNING for spreading this universally via an Universal Basic Income FOR ALL 7.5 BILLION people. Such blockchain ledgers would include health care data in WUaS online medical schools with online teaching hospitals for clinical care (and even re medical robotics).
Curious too about how many languages IBM Watson is developing in and planning for?
And, in a related vein, how IBM Watson Personality will work differentially in each of all 7,097 living languages - and even re brain research and language eventually.
Dear Larry (Clevenger) and Jim (Spohrer),
It looks like electricity is off in rural Canyon (in SF Bay Area) where I live, so I may not have wifi. I'll try to access this meeting from my smartphone, if Zoom works there, and if the phone signal is robust enough for video.
@WUaSPress (planned in all 7100 living languages with machine translation).
Sustainability: Universal Basic Income for all 7.5 billion people as Assistive Technologies - and coding for this re World University and School, "Subduction (Gros Morne, Canada): Blockchain(&Bitcoin) for Health Care for All?, Jonathen Chen, Stanford Professor of Medicine (Programmer too) ...", "Plate tectonics: Blockchain ledger and planning for technical programming - re Stanford, Blockchain ledger data standards for health care sound worth developing, Robotic surgery, Conceptually - like Quickbooks/Multi-Store/TurboTax particularly for their multiple countries' multiple languages ..."https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2017/08/sustainability-universal-basic-income.html
Hi Karolyn, (Jim and Larry),
Per your invitation, Karolyn, I blogged about this morning's IBM CSIG talk here today -
https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2018/03/aptenia-cordifolia-great-ibm-cognitive.html - and there are more over the years especially re Jim Spohrer's talks and contributions in my blog.
World University and School in particular has an all countries' and all 7,097 living languages' focus, as well as an CC-4 MIT OpenCourseWare in 5 languages' focus.
In addition to a CryptoCurrency with Blockchain ledger spread via a Universal Basic Income for 7.5 billion people, WUaS Corp is also, conceptually, like Quickbooks/Multi-Store/TurboTax particularly for their multiple countries' multiple languages' tax systems' focus.
Blogging this week’s call – please notify Karolyn Schalk ... of your blog

Thanks so much for your email reply. It looks like living languages are down 2 to 7,097 (and Glottolog's entries in languages is 8,475 - http://glottolog.org/
glottolog/language; see the ISO 639 too in these regards). These numbers change a little bit from time to time, but an universal translator (about which I've given an IBM CSIG talk as well as a ISSIP talk) isn't yet developing rapidly (think Google Translate - Google Neural Machine Translation - GNMT, and Wikimedia Content Translation as conceptual building blocks) - and especially for machine translation at the WUaS Press / WUaS Corp - https://twitter.com/ WUaSPress?lang=en - for professional STEM translation.
Kind regards, Scott
