The September 2019 issue of Harvard Business Manager includes the article “Enter the Cognitive Age” written by Keeeb Founder and Chief Visionary Konrad Gulla.
The article explores the challenges and opportunities presented by digital transformation as data continues to grow exponentially and new cognitive technologies emerge to “make all areas of work and private life predictable with self-thinking and self-acting algorithms.” Mr. Gulla compares the advent of this “cognification” to the rise of electrification in the 20th century with its revolutionary impact on all aspects of life and business.
While many companies see data growth as their greatest challenge, Mr. Gulla argues that technologies capable of understanding users and automatically connecting them with available resources will transform this data into a key advantage. “The handling of knowledge and decisions will change fundamentally in the next ten years through Cognitive Knowledge Discovery platforms,” he writes. “Personal Digital Intelligence that knows our interests, the level of our expertise, and our professional network will continuously compare all of this with publicly available, in-house, and paid knowledge sources to help us ask better questions, understand relationships faster, and make more informed decisions.”
Mr. Gulla encourages companies to prepare for cognification by collecting data and making it accessible to AI enabled platforms. Keeeb’s Intelligence Platform helps achieve this by collecting user data across all connected data sources and making the data in those sources easily discoverable and accessible. This primes AI-powered tools and enables employees to leverage relevant knowledge from across the enterprise more efficiently and effectively.
