Abstract: Watson Conversational, The Future of Engagement with Robots and Virtual Agents. Cognitive conversation is the next frontier in humans' engagement with machines. Cognitive robotics is a field of technology involving robots that can learn from experience, from human teachers, and even on their own, thereby developing the ability to effectively deal with their environment. The primary goal is to make the robot act and react appropriately in real-world situations. Today's users demand experiences that go beyond conventional customer service, such as helping customers instantly and seamlessly engage with a bank, order a pizza from a mobile application, or helping engineers on an oil rig answer pressing operational questions. In this session, Rob Burton, located in Calgary,  explains how Watson enables new business outcomes driven by cognitive capabilities. Common elements and functions of a so-called smart robot include: Voice Recognition , Speech synthesis, Ability to explore on its own, Ability to learn from mistakes, long term knowledge acquisition,  artficial intelligence.
