Cognition is in virtually everything that humans do, such as language understanding, perception, judgment, learning, spatial processing and social behavior ; and given that IBM Watson represents the first step at envisioning truly cognitive systems - it becomes crucial to constantly harness its abilities with processing natural language, evaluating hypotheses and learning dynamically across domains. The project we will go over in this talk is aimed at augmenting these very behaviors of IBM Watson as PhrazIt is focused at enriching raw data and essentially transforming information into insights. PhrazIt’s technologically differentiated core that is powered by an augmented extraction-based text summarization algorithm utilizes a novel contextualized indexing framework thus making it a tremendous value-add when deploying cognitive services powered by Watson. Join us as we go over the current and emerging state of the art in the space of text summarization. Reflect on what is changing the world in this era of cognition. Dive deep into the pipeline and the core algorithmic paradigms that power a content extraction engine. And leave with an understanding of what it takes to build a product that provides data science-as-a-service.
