Machines Are Friends Not Foes: Using Cognitive Computing to Assess Threats

Think Tank - 10:05 am - 10:30 am

Popular movies, books and television shows typically position advanced technology as a threat to humanity and all we hold dear. Yet cognitive computing technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing and augmented reality (AR) are helping CIOs and CISOs make better decisions faster. We will discuss how cognitive computing can help us navigate the acceleration of activity and decisions that we are experiencing on our digital transformation journeys.


  1. New cognitive computing technologies can be unnerving and difficult to trust.
  2. Used properly, cognitive computing technologies such as AI, ML and AR can provide data to humans in such a way to enable us to better prioritize the decisions we must make and make those decisions more effectively.
