12-12:50 – Building the Cognitive Business
- Simon James
Cognitive opportunity landscape
Elli = AI psychoanalyst for veterans more likely to open up to a robot than a human psychologist. Same for debt management. People open up to robot rather than humans.
Cognitive is a platform play, not a product play. You need to create an ecosystem and can’t just buy a product for AI.
14-15 – A conversation with Bob Odenkirk
Great, entertaining, random chat between Fred Armisen and Bob Odenkirk
15-16 – Meeting the father of the Internet Vint Cerf at IEEE and PCI Future of the Internet Meet Up
15-15:30 – Lessons Learned from Birthing a Bot
- Chris Messina
Chris Messina’s mebot saves him time e.g. Sending his bio (300k interactions) and saving time to people who don’t have to crawl different platforms where Chris publishes.
Other bots: fake celebrities’ bots
Future is bot-to-bot connections e.g. to prep where to go out, plan vacations…
17-18 – AI’s Final Frontier: your living room
- Jeff Wilson
Rethink house as a product, iterative rather than fixed.
22-12 – The Disaster Artist (Work-In-Progress) by James Franco.
Premiere at the Paramount Theatre. Hilarious and great fun at Q&A with the cast… with the original cast from “The Room” joining them on stage. Epic! and approved by the husband 😉
