Get Social. Build Apps. Meet IBM Watson at Internet Week in New York

This year, Internet Week New York happens to coincide with the celebration of the IBM Centennial in June. So as part of our celebration of 100 years of innovation, we’ll be hosting an Internet Week event on June 9th from 2pm until 5:30pm at the new IBM briefing center on historic Madison Avenue.

What we will be discussing:

Did you know that IBM is focused on helping Startups succeed? Find out how developing social applications with IBM technology can set you apart in the marketplace and learn about the IBM Smart Camp program going on around the globe including right here in New York.

So do you think you are smarter than IBM Watson? Well, you’ll also have an opportunity to get up close with IBM Watson, the artificial intelligence computer system developed by IBM Research capable of answering questions posed in natural language.  See how the technologies are now going beyond game show history to tackle some of the world’s most challenging business problems.

Is your business a Social Business? The integration of social computing into enterprise design represents an enormous shift in how business is conducted. Organizations that successfully transform into a Social Business can potentially reap great benefits – among them the ability to deepen customer relationships, drive operational effectiveness and optimize the workforce. For today’s stand-out companies, integrating social capabilities into enterprise design is a must. That opens new doors for business opportunities to be more engaged, transparent and nimble.

So how can IBM help you? Learn about bringing applications to "the cloud", taking your mobile apps on the go on most major platforms, and get started with the IBM Social Business Framework and Toolkit.
