IBM Research (NYSE: IBM) today announced plans for a multi-year collaboration with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to pioneer new frontiers in the scientific field of immersive cognitive systems.
The Situations Room
The Situations Room represents the bridge between groups of people and supercomputers (Society of Cognitive Agents) as outlined in the figure above. It includes two elements: a physical immersive environment- to allow human-scale interaction and a digital representation of the context of group activities, or the “mind-of-room”; the Situations Room is an integration between cognitive computing and immersive environments.
