In 2000, everyone was starting a business. The dot com bubble still looked like endless progress, there was talk about a whole new economy, and millionaires were funding companies with no products and very little experience. There was a lot of hype.
With this backdrop, I was a 3rd year Philosophy student at the University of Virginia thinking why is the software I use every day not able to learn? It was obvious to me that software would be better if every time I used it—it would learn. Surely, someday all software would learn. And that was software everyone should own. I wanted to build that company. So I did.

Spies are infiltrating Wall Street.
A wave of companies with ties to the intelligence community is winning over the world of finance, with banks and hedge funds putting the firms’ terrorist-tracking tools to work rooting out employee misconduct before it leads to fines or worse.
“Both Wall Street and the intelligence world want the same thing: to find unknown unknowns in the data,” said Roger Hockenberry, the former chief technology officer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s clandestine services and now a partner at the consulting firm Cognitio Corp. in Washington.
“Financial firms aren’t looking for terrorists, but good customers and attempts at fraud,” he said.
There is a new world order coming to Wall Street.
Startups are taking on the financial sector. Some of the companies look to usurp traditional players, and others step into the gaps they've left behind.

Cloud computing is increasingly being used for intelligence-gathering and “threat analysis” as government vendors like Amazon Web Services join forces with analytics outfits that are meshing cognitive computing and other forms of data analysis with cloud computing horsepower.
Among the initial platforms for much of this intelligence activity is the AWS “GovCloud,” a walled-off cloud region created after Amazon won a huge CIA cloud contract in 2013. GovCloud, which went live last year, includes special provisions to create a “government-community cloud” that meets additional security and operational standards such as restricting access to “U.S. persons.”

Banks are hunting for rogue traders the same way the Pentagon hunts for terrorists: By predicting their behavior.
Instead of looking for weapons deals and on-the-ground movement plans, predictive algorithms can spot shady bankers by tracking their emails when they talk about tickets to sports events and concerts. Cutting-edge analytics systems frown upon choice seats to the Super Bowl, which raise red flags for bribery.
Cognitive is a next computing paradigm, responding to demand for always-on, hyper-aware data technologies that scale from device form to the enterprise.
Cognitive computing is an approach rather than a specific capability. Cognitive mimics human perception, synthesis, and reasoning capabilities by applying human-like machine-learning methods to discern, assess, and exploit patterns in everyday data. It's a natural for automating text, speech, and image processing and dynamic human-machine interactions.
Wall Street traders are already threatened by computers that can do their jobs faster and cheaper. Now the humans of finance have something else to worry about: Algorithms that make sure they behave.
JPMorgan Chase & Co., which has racked up more than $36 billion in legal bills since the financial crisis, is rolling out a program to identify rogue employees before they go astray, according to Sally Dewar, head of regulatory affairs for Europe, who’s overseeing the effort. Dozens of inputs, including whether workers skip compliance classes, violate personal trading rules or breach market-risk limits, will be fed into the software.

Depending upon whom you ask, the nascent field of cognitive computing is either the most important trend in technology since programmable computers, a massively intrusive spying tool that can lay bare our deepest secrets, or perhaps simply a powerful approach for processing diverse data sets to deliver insights that humans can understand.
In reality, the truth is some combination of all of the above – although everyone admits it’s still quite early days to make the final call. It’s not at all surprising, therefore, that the market is also quite confused about what cognitive computing really is.

As federal cloud provider Amazon Web Services (AWS) readies its commercial cloud service for the CIA, other vendors are lining up to supply the analytical and other tools needed to harness the enormous amounts of data to be stored and analyzed in the emerging spy and other federal clouds.
Among them is new CIA partner Cloudera, which is promoting an enterprise data hub platform that seeks to add a layer of “pervasive analytics” via a unified framework and data formats along with security and administration. Pervasive analytics would be used by federal agencies like the CIA to drive data from analysts to decision makers, Mike Olson, Cloudera’s chief strategy officer, said at a company event in Tysons Corner, Va., this week.
