“Java Programming”
“Machine Learning”
“Computational Linguistics”
“Natural Language Processing”
Watson Needs TALENT!
“Performance Engineering”
“Artificial Intelligence”
Watson has opened up a world of new possibilities

“Information Retrieval”

What is Watson?
The New Face of IBM
Executing With Speed
New Work Environment
Building Essential Skills for the Cognitive Era
Pilot 10 Universities 2014 growing 170 globally by 2016
Secret Sauce:

1. Develop corpus - Build ideas for cognitive innovation in an Industry - collection & curation of data
2. Train corpus - Ingest data, test, train, evaluate
3. Prototype App Development - Design, develop and deliver a prototype app
4. Develop Entrepreneurial Know-How: – Create business plan for market-ready solutions
Students compete to build the best Apps using Watson intelligence
Watson Coursework
Give students unprecedented access to Watson - via the Watson Developer Cloud & provide IBM technical mentors, guest speakers, and course development to ensure success

January 9th - NYC - Headquarters - top team from each school competes for for at $100K seed fund to get their start-up off the ground
