                          Overview of Presentation

                          I. Introduction

                          II. Background on how IBM Watson is transforming industries

                          III. How Companies Are Using Watson to find, organize, and extract key insights from data

                          IV. How We can Take Data Insights to Discover Hidden Emotions in Videos and Documents, Train People a Domain [Medicine, Law, Finance, etc.] Language, and Find Detailed Answers to Highly Specific Questions

                          V. Key Takeaways

                          Here is a snapshot of a presentation I have given at conferences around the world but have tailored for this audience:

                          Artificial Intelligence allows us transform work and decision making in healthcare, transportation, retail, insurance, education and more. At IBM, we extract deep insights from both large and small data sets, structured and unstructured to empower smarter business.

                          Our Watson Assistant provides out-of-the box, pre-trained conversation in domain areas of banking, telecommunications, insurance and energy & utilities. Watson Studio provides a tooling environment that allows developers and product managers to collaborate on projects. Watson Discovery is the world's most powerful insight engine which leverages the fullest spectrum of cognitive technologies to learn more less data. And these are only a few of our technologies. Taken altogether, our AI products unlock data because in this era of AI, long standing enterprises that have years of accumulated business and consumer knowledge will differentiate themselves with Watson and win. 

                          In this presentation, I want to walk you through how companies all over the world our leveraging our cognitive technologies to develop meaningful conversations with their teams and clients. Using Watson, companies like Centiment can identify 35 different emotions on any given topic; increasing their likelihood of reaching a desired outcome with customers by 50%. Or companies can train Watson like how H&R Block trained Watson on the language of taxes and is now be used by over 70,000 tax professionals to understand content, interpret intent, and draw conclusions between a client's responses to suggest tax benefits. But this is only the beginning of Watson's power.

                          Woodside Energy used Watson to turn workers' stories into data. Watson analyzed millions of documents and put 30 years of practical engineer experience at the fingertips of Woodside employes. Watson then finds, exposes and organizes this information helping safety analysts find workplace safety improvements so that together, Woodside and IBM can make a difference to people’s lives.

                              FST-01SZ (SZ stands for ShenZhen) and my experience for free hardware design

                                Niibe Yutaka (Chairman Free Software Initiative of Japan)

                                I designed original FST-01 in 2011.  It is minimum 32-bit USB computer.

                                It is free hardware design which is developed by KiCAD.  In 2012, it was manufactured in ShenZhen.

                                This year of 2018, I am going to update the PCB design for new production.

                                In this opportunity, I explored Chinese market and found de-facto standard for USB device named "手腕板" in China which is suitable for my design.  In this talk, I will explain the new design of FST-01SZ, and how ShenZhen matters for free hardware design and hackers.

                                  Rafael Lee (Lead Embedded Engineer Dorabot Inc.)

                                  A Guide Of Free Software toolchain for Embedded Software Development. Stopped by proprietary toolchain and IDE suggested by different IC manufacturer? No, Use free software toolchain instead.

                                  M5 Stack - Easy IoT for everyone

                                    Luke Henderson (CCO (chief content officer) M5 Stack)

                                    M5 stack is a modular stackable open source development device. The M stands for Modular and 5 stands for the units compact 5 x 5 cm size. The M5 stack aims to take the pain out of developing your new inventions and ideas. M5 stack comes packed with sensors, wifi, bluetooth, a screen and its own power supply which avoids the inconvenience of messy wires strewn across breadboards and adding new functionality is as simple as stacking it on top of one of the many expansion modules or plugging in a unit via the handy grove connectors.

                                    The Future of Cloud Software

                                      Frank Karlitschek (Founder Nextcloud)

                                      We are heading into a world were the files of most users are hosted by 4 big companies in the US. This is the case for most home users, companies but also education and research institutions. If we want to keep our sovereignty over our data, protect our privacy and prevent vendor lock-in then we need open source self hosted and federated alternatives. The internet and the web use a distributed and federated architecture. Now we have to make sure that cloud services follow the same model. A new challenge is the increasing blending of application hosting and storage as seen at Office 365 and Google Suite. This has the danger to lead to a very strong vendor lock-in. 

                                      This talk will discuss the ongoing trends in this areas and possible solutions. It will also give an overview of newest Nextcloud features and the long term roadmap to provide an alternative to centralised services.

                                      Modern Source and Version Control with Git

                                        Christian Couder (Senior Software Engineer GitLab)

                                        Since it was created in 2005 by Linus Torvalds, Git has become the new standard in source code and version control. With tools like GitLab and GitHub, it opened up a new era of collaborative development. Through some of its features, let's see how it can have a great impact on software quality and agility.

Open Source Business Models are similar to the sharing economy. I am going to briefly introduce the different licences including Free and Open Source Licences and Creative Commons Licences. Examples of interesting business models including Open Hardware will then be presented.
