We have our next event scheduled for next Wednesday, 10/22 at Two Sigma, 101 Avenue of the Americas. We're fortunate to have Dr. Alfio Gliozzo speaking to us on the capabilities of IBM Watson, as well as Stuart Dambrot discussing Exocortical Cognition. Details can be found below, including a special offer from our new partner, The World Technology Summit! Both discussions will last ~30 minutes, allowing for plenty of time for discussion.

IBM Watson by Alfio Gliozzo - A discussion around recent developments at Watson, and learning about their implications for the future of computing and AI.
Topics of discussion include: The Jeopardy! system, its adaptation to the medical domain and the implication of Watson for the new era of cognitive computing.
Exocortical Cognition by Stuart Dambrot - The current extension of location-independent cloud computing from data to applications (as instantiated in personal, portable, connected computational platforms that increasingly act as portals to off-device resources) forms the foundation for "Exocortical Cognition": the end game of accelerating progress in neuroscience, genetics, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence, quantum physics, and knowledge virtualization – all converging to externalize neocortical cognitive function.
Finally, we've partnered with this year's World Technology Summit in NYC on November 13th and 14th! This prestigious event, being held at the TIME Conference Center in NYC delivers world class content and updates on emerging technologies presented by key industry thought leaders and influencers. The Summit closes with a black-tie Awards Gala celebrating both individuals and organizations who are doing the innovative work of "the greatest likely long-term significance" in their fields.
