Sridhar Iyengar, Distinguished Engineer from IBM Research, and Jonathan Young, IBM Watson Group Program Director will explore the disruptive force of cognitive computing and demonstrate several use cases in which present day cognitive systems and emerging capabilities from IBM Research could significantly impact the operations of financial services organizations. These include:

- Cognitive assistants in a human/cognitive agent environment that could be used by investment banking experts to narrow acquisition targets or leverage robotics to assist retail banking customers to select a financial product
- A financial sentiment aggregator that could use a cognitive engine to consume investment reports and derive investment sentiment and outlook
- Analysis of psycholinguistic features from written text using deep learning techniques so that a financial services company could tailor products and services to the needs of individual customers
- Advice for Financial Advisors that could enable them to provide timely and relevant guidance and recommendations by combining a Watson’s cognitive decision support, traditional portfolio data, and a stream of social, news, investment reports and other unstructured data
