CAMPAIGN: IBM 2015 Corporate Responsiblity Report

CONTENT: Article

New York Times story and short video about how IBM Watson cognitive computing is enabling essential and innovative improvements to one of our most critical issues -- the quality of teaching and learning in our schools. Developed in collaboration with education experts and -- equally important -- educators themselves, IBM Teacher Advisor harnesses the power of cognitive computing to answer educators' questions and help them build effective lesson plans. The program's initial focus is third-grade math, with other disciplines and levels to be added. And because IBM Teacher Advisor is cognitive, the more it's used the more it "learns" and the better and more helpful it gets. Teacher Advisor brings IBM's best thinking and most advanced capabilities to the 21st century classroom. Watch this short video to see and hear how it works, then share the news -- both the video and the New York Times story -- across your networks.
