Think 2019: IBM Flagship Technology Conference

Explore the technologies that are redefining industries, learn from the experts, and get your biggest questions answered. From high-level strategy discussions to targeted technical training, IBM THINK will cover the breadth and depth of technology and business topics including cloud, AI, data and analytics, infrastructure, and many more. 

Come over to our booth 550 to witness a series of compelling live demonstrations throughout the conference. These include FARM, Cognitive QA, Digital Thread, the latest SoC and ALICE the AI Chatbot.

We also have three interesting breakout sessions planned for this conference:

1. Next-Generation Enterprise Asset Management: A Digital Thread Leveraging IoT, Blockchain and AI

Speaker: Mangirish Herwadkar

Emerging technologies like IoT, Blockchain and artificial intelligence are disrupting the way organizations design, manufacture, source, transport and repair assets across different stages of their lifecycles. Yet those disciplines are still mostly operating in silos. In this session, we will introduce “The Digital Thread,” a new paradigm in which a “single view” of an asset across all stakeholders helps unlock significant new benefits.

When: Thursday, February 14, 08:30 AM – 09:10 AM
Where: Hilton Union Square, Ballroom Level | Franciscan B

2. The Intelligent SoC

Speakers: Ninad Purohit  and Geert van der Linden

Enterprises have already implemented SIEM yet have failed to reach the expected benefits because security threats are evolving so quickly in complexity. The new threat landscape calls for an intelligent, robust SOC that is also flexible enough to evolve with emerging threats to identify and preempt sophisticated attacks. Hear how Capgemini’s managed SOC with IBM QRadar technology provides a highly scalable, end-to-end managed cybersecurity services solution.

When: Thursday, February 14, 10:30 AM – 11:10 AM
Where: St. Regis Hotel, Level 4 | Impressionist I

3. FARM: Supporting 500 Million Small-Scale Farmers to Tackle the Global Food Challenge Using AI and ML

Speakers: Julian van Velzen

The global population is growing, especially in Africa, and more food needs to be sustainably produced to feed everyone. While 80% of the world’s food is produced by small-scale farmers, these crucial actors fail to produce food efficiently. By combining different data sources—ranging from social-economic data to weather and satellite data—FARM learns and adapts to eliminate inefficiencies in the agricultural value chain. With the ultimate goal to feed the world in 2050, FARM promises to deliver the next big thing in agriculture. Our platform helps the poorest, but is designed to impact many more.

When: Thursday, February 14, 10:30AM – 10:50 AM
Where: Moscone South, Exhibit Level, Hall C | Business Partner Showcase Theater
