Cloud based Cognitive Learning Systems

August 21, 2015 § Leave a comment

This morning, like every morning, I started my day off with Lumosity brain training. Lumosity is an online brain training and neuroscience research company based in San Francisco. Lumosity has a brain training platform consisting of games in the areas of memory, attention, flexibility, speed of processing, and problem solving. Today, I was excited to see a new game “Editor’s Choice” included in my training options. The game is focused on “Verbal Fluency” challenging the user  to rapidly retrieve words associated with various categories from their mental vocabulary. Needless to say, very entertaining and mentally stimulating at 5:30am. The game reminded me of a customer conversation from earlier in the week that focused on what IBM Watson is doing from a cognitive learning perspective. I commented that (we) IBM had just rolled out Watson to Deakin University’s (50,000) students. Over time, students who ask Watson a question can expect tailored information, personalized advice and information based on their individual profile. As one of the 70 million members of Lumosity, I have to think we IBM Watson have a tremendous opportunity to deliver personalized advise, education, and continuous learning options to every student, parent, employee, patient, and citizen globally. The illustration below provides a glimpse into the future of the classroom. In five years, the classroom will be anywhere and everywhere we are! That very exciting when you think about a world population that exceeded 7.3 billion people as of July 1, 2015.
