I’m an Adoption Leader on the IBM Watson and Cloud Platform team. Our mission is to assist clients, large and small, in adopting the IBM Watson and Cloud Platform services. Our team has started a joint blog to keep our clients informed and up-to-date on what’s happening across the IBM Watson and Cloud Platform.

We have therefore introduced the Cloud Adoption Leaders feed on the IBM developerWorks site to syndicate our blogs together. See my earlier blog post here.

Each week, I and my fellow IBM Watson and Cloud Adoption Leaders will blog via the IBM developerWorks site, bringing you links to interesting articles, tutorials and the latest news to keep you up-to-date on the IBM Watson and Cloud Platform. The advantage of this is that you will get a varied and global perspective each week. All you need to do is just click this link to subscribe.

News about AI

AI is now so complex its creators can’t trust why it makes decisions.  As AI has evolved over time towards deep learning it has become complex to understand how an AI system has determined its answers.  This is an interesting article which highlights a discussion from the NIPS conference last month and the participants’ views on the understandability of AI. Educate yourself and understand the real issues and implications of AI and machine learning.
