    AI in the Workplace: Emergence of the Cognitive Room

    The physical world and the digital world are becoming more intertwined in all aspects of life. In the enterprise, this trend is exhibited by the emergence of the cognitive room. Cognitive rooms, which harness the power of the team as well as the power of AI, are poised to transform the future of work.

    Enterprises need to learn to capture the value in this new world order—and starting with the human element is key. Innovative human-centered UIs must be used to augment a user’s ability to gain insight from the massive amounts of unstructured data that are part of today’s enterprise workflow and the lifeblood of cognitive rooms.

    Mary Ann will be addressing the challenge organizations face today to transcend traditional, sequential analytical processes in favor of faster parallel and real-time working processes that deliver the greatest business impact.
