The IBM Champions for Social Business have been included in the beta (alpha?) of IBM Watson Workspace. I am able to invite friends to join too. I just need your IBM ID. It should be an email address. If you still have the old-school ID that was whatever username you wanted, you need to create one that is an email address.
Once logged in, you can follow the new features that are getting added here.
Looking forward to exploring the new technology driven by Watson. I will share more about features after I get familiar with it.
As both an IBM business partner and a transportation technology enthusiast, it is exciting to see #IBMWatson getting into the transportation game. Transportation is a huge industry and everyone wants to innovate to capture that revenue. Google, IBM, Detroit and countless startups are racing in. Transportation is about to change in ways unimagined.
How exactly is transportation technology changing?
– Autonomous vehicles to improve safety and allow us to use travel time more effectively
– Trip-combining solutions to reduce vehicles on the road
– Apps that guide us to avoid traffic and find the fastest route
– even technology that brings us together without leaving home (my specialty).
So where is it taking us?
