U Illinois and IBM To Power up Cognitive Computing

Research U Illinois and IBM To Power up Cognitive Computing By Rhea Kelly 04/18/16 A new research center at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign will explore how machine learning systems can advance cognitive computing. As part of a multiyear collaboration with IBM Research, the university is creating the Center for Cognitive Computing Systems Research (C3SR) on its Urbana campus, set to open this summer. The goal of the center is to “integrate and advance scientific frontiers in both machine learning and heterogeneous computing systems optimized for new cognitive computing workloads,” according to a news release. The C3SR will study and fine-tune the way cognitive computing systems like IBM’s Watson technology can learn from multimedia and multimodal content to master a particular subject area. It will build systems that “efficiently ingest…
