LBS professor @lindayueh:
The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is a global network of young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. It was established to convene each year in advance of the G-20 Summit, with the aim of championing the importance of young entrepreneurs to the G20 member nations and to share examples and practices. The Alliance was officially created at the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit, Toronto, Canada, 2010.
G20 YEA Summit is being held each year since 2010. First meeting was held in Canada. France, Mexico, Russia, Australia Summits followed first one. Innovation and technology, investment and access to capital, education and coordinated support, government regulation and taxation, trade and globalization, entrepreneurship, culture and equality are the main topics of the summit.
TUGIAD took over the Presidency on behalf of Turkey in Sydney on July 2014. “Entrepreneurial Culture” framework will be discussed in detail within the sub-headings in Turkey Summit, 2015.
ICTA research leader in artificial intelligence, Professor Toby Walsh, says Watson is well suited to solving problems that involve sifting through large volumes of unstructured data.
As the volume of data available to humans increases, he says tools like Watson will be essential for helping make sense of it all. An early application of Watson is in helping clinicians make better decisions.
“The number of scientific papers being written is beyond the remit of any one person to read any more, and often it is unstructured text,” Walsh says.
One of the first Australian organisations to sign up to Watson is Victoria’s Deakin University. Chief digital officer, William Confalonieri, says the university is using Watson initially to create an intelligent digital guide for students. Deakin has received the highest ranking of any Victorian university for learning satisfaction for the past four years, and Confalonieri says the use of Watson is intended to cement this...
How does Watson learn? Watson gets smarter by tracking feedback from its users and applying that knowledge. http://t.co/up2UJSQdly— IBM Watson (@IBMWatson) June 2, 2015
