  32. 32. "Cognitive computing listens, learns, converses, and makes recommendations based on evidence." Forrester
  33. 33. "The machines of tomorrow – cognitive systems – will forever change the way people interact with computing systems to help people extend their expertise across any domain of knowledge and make complex decisions involving extraordinary volumes of fast moving Big Data." IBM
  34. 34. "The smart machine era will be the most disruptive in the history of IT. New systems that begin to fulfill some of the earliest visions for what information technologies might accomplish – doing what we thought only people could do and machines could not – are now finally emerging." Gartner
  35. 35. "The combination of people and computers will be able to think in a way that neither people nor computers have ever done before. I think that’s the really exciting potential and opportunity for us ahead." MIT
  36. 36. "Cognitive systems ... learn from their interactions with people and data and are able to programme themselves to perform new tasks. They are more flexible than traditional computers in the way that they process data, coming closer to thinking like humans, while being able to deal with massive volumes of information much faster than the human brain." British Computer Society
  37. 37. "The skills required are going to take organisations into areas with which few are already familiar, requiring an understanding of how to design and build the flows of information into cognitive systems. A large element of this will cover the interaction between humans and cognitive systems, which could be quite different to the way people are currently interacting with computers. There will also be a need for people who can design the systems to identify what they need to learn to solve a problem, how they can obtain the necessary data, and how to use it." British Computer Society
