IBM is offering an alternative definition of AI: augmented intelligence. Augmented intelligence is enabling a new level of engagement and quickly becoming the differentiator to transform business, revolutionizing the partnership between man and machine, extending our capabilities, bridging understanding, and improving decision making.

No longer a nascent technology, Watson APIs and services are integrated into enterprises across industry and across practices. Damion Heredia explores how augmented intelligence is helping these companies disrupt industries and enabling them to make better decisions.

This keynote is sponsored by IBM.
