IBM Smarter PlanetVoice: What’s The Future Of Cognitive Computing? IBM Watson

March 3, 2015

We are entering a new period of computing history — the cognitive computing era.

Cognitive computing offers fundamental differences in how systems are built and interact with humans. Cognitive-based systems, such as IBM Watson, are able to build knowledge and learn, understand natural language, and reason and interact more naturally with human beings than traditional systems.

1. Engagement: These systems fundamentally change the way humans and systems interact and significantly extend the capabilities of humans by taking advantage of peoples’ ability to provide expert assistance and to understand. These systems provide expert assistance by developing deep domain insights and presenting the information in a timely, natural and usable way. Here, cognitive systems play the role of an assistant, although one who is tireless, can consume vast amounts of structured and unstructured information, can reconcile ambiguous and even self-contradictory data, and can learn. Humans and Watson working together are more effective than either one alone.

2.Decision: These systems have decision-making capabilities. Decisions made by cognitive systems are evidence-based and continually evolve based on new information, outcomes and actions. Currently, cognitive computing systems perform more as advisors by suggesting a set of options to human users, who ultimately make the final decisions. To do so, the systems rely on confidence scores — a quantitative value that represents the merit of a decision after evaluating multiple options — to help users make the best possible choice, including why a particular recommendation was made.

3. Discovery: These systems can discover insights that perhaps could not be discovered by even the most brilliant human beings. Discovery involves finding insights and connections and understanding the vast amounts of information available around the world. With ever-increasing volumes of data, there is a clear need for systems that help exploit information more effectively than humans could on their own. While still in the early stages, some discovery capabilities have already emerged, and the value propositions for future applications are compelling. Advances in this capability area have been made in specific domains, such as medical research, where robust amounts of information exist.

What is the easiest way for a girl to marry into money?

March 2, 2015

Answer by Xeelee Yoshinaga:

By being intelligent, classy, reasonably attractive, and putting yourself in social situations where you are likely to meet wealthy people and befriend and date them.

It would not be easy. Wealthy people are on guard against gold diggers, no one wants to feel like you are just dating them for their money. It is not just a matter of looking good, you must also learn the proper etiquette and social mores of the class of which you wish to move up into. You must be knowledgeable and intelligent, a wealthy man [or woman as the case might be] is not going to want to marry someone who cannot even carry on a conversation about topics they enjoy. 

You must do your research and find out where wealthy people hang out and find a way to socialize with them. Again, easier said than done. Many of these places are exclusive and will not let just anyone walk in the door.

It really helps if you have your own money.

Media Company CEO Wins $1 Million At Vegas Blackjack Tables, Drops $300K On Steak Dinner

March 1, 2015

Shane Smith, CEO of Vice Media Inc., reportedly won $1 million playing blackjack and then dropped $300,000 for a steak dinner at Bellagio last month, according to Bloomberg. MGM Resorts International, owner of the casino, revealed on an earnings call Tuesday that unidentified guests had enjoyed a $300,000 meal, and the firm’s CEO said it actually was an indicator of the city’s economic recovery. The high roller was later revealed as Smith. MGM CEO Jim Murren said he hadn’t seen a check like that since 2007, reported the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He added: “It tells you there is a release valve that has opened. That isn’t a trend, but it’s a sign people are ready to spend money again.” Smith and his team were in Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show. Bottles of wine valued at $20,000 apiece were to blame for the huge dinner tab. Smith is said to have a net worth of around $400 million. One of Las Vegas’ iconic casinos—the Riveria—was just purchased by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and this year will …

Man Wins $1.5 Million On NJ Online Gaming Site

March 1, 2015

On Valentine’s Day, a New Jersey man, who has so far been unidentified, won $1.5 million on a single hand of “Let It Ride” on a New Jersey-approved web betting site. According to the Associated Press, it’s the largest online gaming payout in the state’s history—and also likely the most ever awarded from an online gaming site licensed by a U.S. state. The $1.5 million beat out a $1.3 million New Jersey online gaming payout in November. New Jersey’s online gaming industry began in late 2013. Nevada’s industry, which is online poker only, began earlier in 2013. Delaware kicked off its online gaming industry around the same time as New Jersey, but sees just a tiny fraction of the revenue generated by New Jersey-facing sites. The Union County man won the $1.5 million in the variant of poker by hitting a royal flush that paid out 1,000:1. He also played with an extra side bet called 3-Card Bonus. The hand happened at BetfairCasino.com. From the AP report: Betfair said the man wagered $500 on each of his three initial bets, …
