, SHARE in Orlando 2011
Watson was fun. But real life is full of real challenges. The real test of technology is how you can apply it today across different industries to have real impact. The development and delivery of Watson was a complex hardware/software project with many unknowns and an aggressive five year schedule.
Our speaker will discuss the challenges associated with planning for a multi-year project with novel hardware and software technologies, some of which were not even available at the beginning of the project. He will provide an overview of the project planning methodology, discuss the technology issues encountered and explain some of the techniques used to ensure the successful delivery of Watson.
Join us for an interesting and informative real-life session on Project Management with untried technologies and hear what lessons were learned on the five year journey to deliver Watson.
