The article echoes with what Prof. Ali taught us in the class – it’s a volatile, uncertain, complex, chaotic and accelerating world. It takes adaptability, concentration, creativity, understanding and vision to keep up with the “VUCCA” world. IBM, an over 100 year’s old company is a great example. Just like the Red Queen said to Alice, IBM showed us - it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.

Re: IBM Watson Ecosystem Partners in Market Building Businesses
In 2004, IBM made a brave and far-sighted decision to sell its PC department after gaining huge success in PC manufacturing industry. After 11 years, IBM has successfully transformed from hardware manufacturer to a creative high-tech company. Today Watson ecosystem again shows IBM is always one step ahead of others. It means a new era-artificial intelligence era is coming! Watson ecosystem platform can help a lot of people with creative and innovative ideas to achieve their dreams and benefit the whole society in many fields, such as healthcare, education, financial industry, public services. That will change our life in a revolutionary way. Is it amazing that auto-drive system can drive your car more safely while you can do something else on your way to company every morning? But on the other hand, with the penetration of AI into our life, many jobs used to be done by human will be replaced by AI. To some extent, it’s also a kind of threat to human beings. Hence, there is still a long way for us to go on our journey to pursue excellence.

Machines with automation is good a repeatable works, process, and straight forward cases. The good new to human is it is not mandatory to learn everything to ensure to get a job to feed yourself. But, challenge comes as well. There are two parts of challenge. One is human has to compete with machine to earn a job, which mean if you cannot find your value in society, you will be poorer than a machine. Another is the loneliness. there is few and few interactive between humans. Humanity will be aroused again for talking and service industry will be a high value added again. Human needs to change their common sense to get costumed to the new life style. However, the entry barrier is not that high to afford. From work for living to enjoy life without too much worries, it will be a new generation to mankind.

Information technology today is far more beyond our imagination, which means there is only something you dont dare to image, but rarely there is something you imaged but hard to realize. As a IT person, we always say nothing is impossible if you have enough funding. Information technology makes most of the thing easy to be done. make the lazy person more lazy, make your comfortable life more comfortable. However, we missed something as well. To get costumed to the fast life, we gave up a lot, especially on the way to success but focus on how to get success only. It is a part that information technology cannot give you, your feeling. It is too quick from the beginning to the end before we realize I am in the case. Maybe, when we go to next stage, information technology can help us to get the target as well, we will have more time to think what my life is and what its mean is...

After I finished the reading,another super intelligent computer came to my mind.Its name was Deep Blue,which was also
powered by IBM.So it was no wonder that IBM could make dreams real. The Watson and its platform based on itself's
artificial intelligence would provide more and more services in diverse fields.We might consider that they only wanted to
show its sophisticated experiences in the pesonal computer and kept ahead in the intelligent technology. Unexpectedly,IBM
expanded its portfolio of Watson APIs and services to accelerate the development of Watson fueled businesses and help
partners develop their businesses. If it went well,that would be a nwe era for people's life.We can see that it will be
applied in goverments,companies and families.So with the help of its paltform,Ithink more and more parters will join in.We
can imagine that our society will really erter into intelligentialize period in near future.

From the amazing appearance in "JEOPARD!" to today its portfolio of Watson APIs and services expansion, IBM Watson seems to be the technology frontier. But its object, to make an efficient work environment for people, has never changed. "It stands for the computing future." Watson Ecosystem is not only to help IBM in applying and developing, but also to help all people in enjoying the interaction with services based on cognitive computing. It is beneficial to IBM and the public. Through the ecosystem platform, IBM can take precedence in this Blue Ocean and also gather its partners' industry Big Data for Watson cognitive computing basis. While the partners and the public can enjoy the efficient decision support from Watson Ecosystem and gain efficient output. Just like IBM expects that, Watson changes IBM and IBM believes Watson can change the world.

IBM made an impressive transformation from a technology-oriented manufacturer to a creative business platform. IBM watson developer cloud is a platform for start-up companies or person who has creative idea to test their product, service, exchange their thoughts and getting feedbacks from the target market directly, the industrial range of the platform is pretty wide which including social media, financial service, health care, R&D, citizen service,etc. This platform is not only provide the opportunities for those developers but also enabled them for founding. IBM this time's strategic innovation is revolutionary.

Watson:

Fourteen years ago, Deep Blue was built. It is a milestone of IBM in the success of super computer. In recent years, while facing the decline market share in PC industry and the subversion from smart phone, IBM keeps its R&D in science and technology and create Watson, another amazing product that is recorded in human history. The persistence and breakthrough brings IBM a new world and a big profit in future.

By means of IBM Watson, many areas are changing their ways of dealing with information, resources, problems and so on. This kind of changes will bring good aspects to human, such as more convenience, efficient, accurate, reliable and so on. As IDC predicts that by 2018, half of all consumers will interact with services based on cognitive computing on a regular basis, It is a new and huge market.

It always need a short term for people to know, accept, adapt to and use a new technology. The article said that 100 partners are testing it and if the results are pleasing, I think that IBM could provide technology to more companies for free, cultivating user habits first and optimize the technology and services simultaneously, And then, make profit later.

Watson Ecosystem is IBM's competitive advantage with Google, Amazon and Microsoft. Its great step into medical industry also faces some moral challenges. For example, if Watson diagnoses wrong, but the doctor takes its suggestion, then there will be risks to get prosecuted. How to take fully advantage of artificial intelligence with less risks is always a direction to think about.

Technology changes life. As the giant in technology field, IBM continuously changes the world and make profits through its great innovation. The invention of PC changes the ways of work and entaintainment while the artificial intelligence helps people do their job better and more efficiently.

IBM, successfully transformed from personal PC to cognitive computing technology provider, catches the opportunities of big data and Cloud in the new era. Waston has been applied in diverse industry and enables partners to bring their own creativity and aspirations as they build their businesses with cognitive.

It's no doubt that Watson's ability to learn, analyze, and apply knowledge suggests that it will continuously and greatly change human's life and make profits.

Nowadays, most top ranked companies are developing platforms and ecosystems, Apple, Google, Microsoft and etc. IBM is not the leaders on mobile systems, but it’s the traditional leader in computers. And according to IDC research, the app economy projected to grow to $143 billion in 2016 to every conceivable interest and industry. The total market revenue is huge and expanding yearly. So developing Watson platform and app services to accelerate the businesses and help the partners differentiate the businesses is very valuable and helpful. And in this area, the competitions are not bad as mobile. IBM is the leader now and will continue lead the market.

As a pioneer in cognitive computing technology filed, IBM has already built a platform Watson Ecosystem, and has established two dedicated business units: Watson and Watson Health. No doubt, more and more cognitive enabled apps from Waston partners will facilitate our daily life, strenthen our abilities and benefit all of us in the end. Therefore, it is a win-win strategy for IBM.It invested in several innovative start-ups including WayBlazer, Sellpoints, Welltok, Pathway Genomics, Modernizing Medicine, and Fluid as well.

I believe the new development strategy for IBM will guarantee its successful transform based on its technology advantanges and collaboration with increasing partners.

We can see that IBM's strategy is undergoing tremendous change, they already sell their PC business, and began to turn big data, and the developmenting of cloud technology, and business began from a single product to multiple product line. And IBM with his partners work together to create the ecosystem, we can see that IBM very good for cooperation and understanding partner to grow their own use, rather than just relying on its own technology. We can see in today's enterprise development need to learn cooperate with each other and play each other's strengths to gain a win-win situation

The more watson become smarter, the more jobs she can do. Now, people use her to pilot, test and deploy new business ideas. Sooner or later , she will become the best employee in the world. Which was become a big challenge to human beings. Because we need more skills to get a job, and maybe this job will become watson's job just tomorrow.

It's amazing - "a platform used by more than 77,000 developers globally to pilot, test and deploy new business ideas". This information indicates that the artificial learning is stepping into decision making, which was thought to be done with intelligence by smart and well-educated persons.

Watson seems to be so appropriate and nature that it should be there, and have been there for a long time. I cannot imagine how the stuffs get done without it. Watson is a milestone, standing for a new era in computing where systems understand the world in the way that humans do: through senses, learning, and experience. In some aspect, Watson is God: it knows everything (of course in some very aspect), and it can provide information that people needs.

This passage makes me think the position of human and the future world. I've read a book called "Out Of Control", written by Kevin Kelly, in which the author predicted the ultimate status of a world with both human and artificial intelligence - a balance status that human and artificial intelligence are highly interacted. The market, the society, and the world will balance what should be done by human and what should be done by machine. The bound of human/AI will be blur for some time, and achieve a new "balance". Actually there's no "balance" but "evolve". Volatility is normal character in new era of human.

Nice quote: "it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place". Things changing fast, the old will be abandoned if they don't embrace the new tide of trend. About 10 years ago, when talked about AI, I thought it was cool but I didn't take it seriously. And now this technology has been used to many aspects that human beings rely on so much. If we draw our "helicopter" higher to see the big picture of the history of computer science, it was not until 1946 that the 1st computer was made - shorter than a man's normal lifetime. Things are accelerating. We should do all the running we can, just to keep ourselves not be left behind.

After reading this article, obviously we see a world full of technology. We can create everything if only with possibly imagine. In the near future, we may be not surprised to see how IT industry changed our life in education, business, public service, individual life… But this will lead to a very important question: What will human do in the future? More and more people will lose their job because there is no need to have any labor to stay on the position, the artificial intelligence will take over everything… As the new era is coming soon, we human should improve ourselves before being replaced…

The Watson Developer Cloud launched by IBM and used by more than 77,000 developers globally to pilot, test and deploy new business ideas, is truly an innovative idea that enables creative people to share, learn, and create on one platform. As a traditional IT conglomerate, IBM is able to spot the future technical trend and understand that creativity and innovation from all walks of life could be the key drive behind such trend. IBM has the foresight to take its step forward, giving its a strong market position in relevant field. In today's fast changing world, creativity and implementation is the fundamental elements of a company' success in the long run.

From a machine producer to an idea producer, IBM seems a little left behind in the field. Optimizing all the hottest internet and elecontronic relevant service and product is an important step should be taken facing with challenges from so many emerging IT giant. Although suffered high cost and high risk, IBM has tried to expand the business coverage to increase possibility to find a chance to make some breakthrough once again. In my view, supported by the accumulated fund and experience for years, rather than copy some current hot idea, it's much better to find a different way or focus on the R&D as the most important competitiveness. In the Internet world, we see the price combats for market share brought the conflicts even more directly, but till now no one could say we have someting to make money for sure. Taking the advantage of onself is the advantage of one's own.

IBM is partnering with healthcare, finance, and other companies that you can imagine to build applications that use Watson’s abilities to improve processes and solve problems. IBM is building a startup ecosystem around Watson, the computer that is learning how to process information like the human brain.Their smart machines will be one of the most disruptive changes ever brought about by information technology.For all of its charged associations and lofty dimensions,BIG DATA is a resource we’ve yet to fully harness. Although This is, in large part, we have only touched on the surface of a layered and encompassing ecosystem, IBM is kind of controlling all the super important DATA of hundreds of companies from its cloud-delivered cognitive computing technologies. With the development of Watson and APIs expansion, Industries from healthcare to finance, from social media to consulting, from marketing to HR, are all accelerated and fast developed in super efficiency data processing integration.
It means, the big data era is in full swing! We have to say that IBM is running fast to be the leading company in this new area. Intelligent applications are the future, and large companies like IBM are probably better off trying to power them. If Big Blue doesn’t do its best to put AI into the hands of developers at companies big and small, Microsoft, Google and a whole host of startups will. And IMB itself already become very important role by controlling and handling hundreds of companies' crucial DATA in the 'Cloud'. --I'm not so sure what it means in future, DATA talks.

What else can human do?

Post by Gao Zhiyang on Mon Oct 19, 2015 2:27 am

In the foreseeable future, such cloud-delivered cognitive computing technologies like IBM Watson will become more and more popular. According to the article, IBM Watson has already been applied in many conventional areas, and achieved even better results than the human did. I think this is a definitely a new era of computing technology, The most amazing thing is allowing machines to be able to analysis the data, and to think. They are more efficient while dealing multi-tasking in the same time compare to the human beings.
A lot of existing jobs can be replaced and it is happening, we can see in our life that machines have already occupied some places which belonged the human being. Such as the ATM, or automatic boarding pass machine, Google auto piloting cars, etc. With IBM Watson, The machine becomes more clever, they can do more complicated jobs, such as to analysis, or identify problems in a very efficient ways.

So in the foreseeable, the competition in the job market is not only between human beings, but also between human and machine like IBM Watson. Since a lot of jobs are going to be automated, what else can human do?

From the article, we can find that IBM has transformed to a creative and technology company from a manufacture firm. At the same time, IBM collaborate with Partners together to create an ecosystem, which means that they can save amounts of money in R&D of where they are not familiar with. Watson is the first open cognitive computing technology platform and represents a new era in computing where systems understand the world in the way that humans do: through senses, learning, and experience. To both of them can use those technologies to enrich their products and services: Social Media Marketing,Card Payments and Financial Services,Knowledge Management,Student Career Counseling,Strategy Advisory,Citizen Services,Advertising and Marketing,Personalized Health and Wellness,Research & Development,Personal Health and Family Care,Athletic Performance,Online Marketing/CRM,Talent Sourcing and Matching,Wine Recommendations,Sales Training,etc. I believe this collaborate can be a double win for both of them in the near future.

I have to say that I'm so amazed by the IBM cognitive computing technology. Computing power meets the human-like capacity to speak, seeing, reason, and learn. That's what cognitive computing is all about, as exemplified by the category leader, IBM Watson. It did symbolise the birth of a new era of intelligent systems or cognitive computing. Cognitive computing, according to IBM, involves systems that interact naturally with human, learn from their experiences and generate and evaluate evidence-based hypotheses. But is this practical technology that can affordably handle important tasks? Can this technology decimate most of the jobs which currently done by human. I think the answer is no. This technology is created & developed to free some of the human jobs only, human will always be at the dominant role and machines are always on the supporting end.
