Cognitive TED and IBM XPrize

Details at the link.  I would like to see some less obvious applications of cognitive.  Beyond just clever search,   Creativity.  Innovation.  Deeper learning.  Interaction with buried enterprise data, linking that to public data, or creating needed data from sensors.  Demanding needed data.  Designing the experiments.

The IBM Watson AI XPRIZE, a Cognitive Computing Competition, was announced on the TED Stage on Feb 17, 2016. It is a $5 million competition challenging teams from around the world to develop and demonstrate how humans can collaborate with powerful cognitive technologies to tackle some of the world’s grand challenges.

Every year leading up to TED2020, teams will go head-to-head at World of Watson, IBM’s annual conference, competing for interim prizes and the opportunity to advance to the next year’s competition.

The three finalist teams will take the TED stage in 2020 to deliver jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring TED Talks demonstrating what they have achieved. 

Ideas will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges for technical validity and ultimately, the TED and XPRIZE communities will choose the winner based on the audacity of their mission and the awe-inspiring nature of the teams’ TED Talks in 2020. .... "
