Here’s another instance of  the pattern where Cognitive Computing provides an experienced, knowledgeable companion to provide information and guidance to a human. A nice parallel from the Sesame Street CEO: Sesame Street originally leveraged the growing presence of TV at all socio-economic levels to reach kids with learning messages; now they are using the growing availability of the internet to reach kids, and the interactive ability of cognitive computing (available via the cloud and therefore to anyone with internet access) to provide a richer learning experience.

“Ultimately, the goal is to provide children from all socio-economic backgrounds with the opportunity for meaningful, personalized education in their most formative years.”
