The future of data analytics is more than merely gleaming data for important information. It's about interacting with computing intelligence to solve unique and difficult problems such as decreasing the cost and increasing the quality of healthcare, providing solid financial advice, and transforming customer service. This mastermind interview with Rob High, IBM Watson CTO and Fellow, will explore the future of data analytics into cognitive computing and its convergence with mobility, social media, and cloud computing.

Mike Rayburn

Guitar Virtuoso

In a tight economy (or any economy), you need the most from your people. You need innovation. You need each associate to reach beyond and become, and create, and generate more than they (or you) ever thought possible. You need transformation. Mike Rayburn, a world-class guitarist and stand-up comedian, uses his guitar and comedy to teach three simple, powerful tools you can use immediately and forever to access your unrealized potential, to look at old things in a new way, and to leap beyond your perceived limitations.
