Crossing the Cognitive Chasm
eFeature 2017

The Cognitive Computing Era: Human-Computer Symbiosis
BPM.com, 16 November 2015
In the anticipated symbiotic partnership, men will set the goals, formulate the hypotheses, determine the criteria, and perform the evaluations. Computing machines will do the routinizable work that must be done to prepare the way for insights and decisions in technical and scientific thinking. Preliminary analyses indicate that the symbiotic partnership will perform intellectual operations much more effectively than man alone can perform them.

The Cognitive Computing Era:Artificial General Intelligence
BPM.com, 10 Novembere 2015
Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is an emerging field aiming at the building of ‘thinking machines;’ that is, general-purpose systems with intelligence comparable to that of the human mind (and perhaps ultimately well beyond human general intelligence).

The Cognitive Computing Era: Commonsense Knowledge
BPM.com, 01 September 2015
The problem is considered to be among the hardest in all of AI research because the breadth and detail of commonsense knowledge is enormous.

The Cognitive Computing Era: Affective Computing  
BPM.com, 17 August 2015
Affective Computing is computing that relates to, arises from, or deliberately influences emotion or other affective phenomena. Emotion is fundamental to human experience, influencing cognition, perception, and everyday tasks such as learning, communication, and even rational decision-making

The Cognitive Computing Era: Deep Learning 
BPM.com, 31 July 2015
It may sound like fiction and rather far-fetched, but success has already been achieved in certain areas using deep learning, such as image processing (Facebook’s DeepFace) and voice recognition (IBM’s Watson, Apple’s Siri, Google’s Now and Waze, Microsoft’s Cortana and Azure Machine Learning Platform).

The Cognitive Computing Era: How Did We Get Here?
BPM.com, 22 July 2015
Back in the early ‘80s, when Goffrey Hinton and his colleagues first started work on the idea of deep learning, computers weren’t fast or powerful enough. By the middle aughts, they had the computing power they needed to realize many of their earlier ideas. 

The Cognitive Computing Era is Here: Are You Ready?
BPM.com, 16 July 2015
The Cognitive Computing Era will change what it means to be a business as much or more than the introduction of modern Management by Taylor, Sloan and Drucker in the early 20th century.

The Cognitive Computing Era is Upon Us
PSFK.com, May 2015
Business-tech author details how cognitive systems wield a power like we've never seen and could soon be tending to our agriculture, industry, and service needs.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution
BPTrends, December 2014
Peter Fingar contends that the fourth industrial revolution is upon us, a revolution that promises to have an enormous effect on manufacturing innovation including “smart devices” that can take control of machines on the shop floor by communicating autonomously. Peter explores the impact this revolution might have on manufacturing operations management processes.   

The Cognitive Internet of Everything
BPTrends, October 2014
Peter Fingar has frequently said that “everything is changed, changed utterly.” In this Column, he explores how the cognitive internet will profoundly affect Business Process Management and offers suggestions to prepare your organization for the sea change he predicts will occur.

Cognitive BPM
BPTrends, June 2014
In his April Column, Peter Fingar predicted that Cognitive Computing would take computing concepts to a whole new level. This month, he elaborates on that prediction. He says that the BPM practitioner’s challenge is no longer just mastering project management and process modeling techniques. It’s social transformation. Read Peter’s Column to learn just what that may mean for you and your organization.

3 + 1: All is Changed, Changed Utterly
BPTrends, April 2014
In his Column this month, Peter Fingar spends one sentence reminiscing about the good old days of BPM and then launches a discussion of the technologies that he believes will profoundly change how companies operate. Read his Column and let us know what you think about these technologies and the impact they might have on your organization, especially Cognitive Computing.

Business Process Management and the COO Revolution
BPTrends, February 2014
This month's Column is adapted from the book, The COO Revolution: Reinventing Customer-Facing Processes for Moments of Truth: http://www.mkpress.com/COO

Smarter Smart Process Apps
BPTrends, December 2013
In his Column this month, Peter Fingar reminds readers that retailers were reluctant to embrace the internet—that is, until they got “Amazoned.” Now, companies face another challenge with the rise of the Smart Process App, which, Peter asserts, is not just another platform shift. Read Peter's Column for his insights into the impact Smart Process Apps will have on how people live and work and how companies will operate in the future.

Playing the BPM Gamification Game
BPTrends, October 2013
Peter Fingar argues that if a knowledge worker's work is not inherently rewarding, adding a layer of game mechanics on top of it won't make it so. Instead, Peter suggests that you combine the most relevant constructs of BPM and video games for the best results in motivating your workers. Read his Column to learn how you might do that.

The New Business MoSAIC
BPTrends, June 2013
In his Column this month, Peter Fingar announces the Fourth Wave of Business Process Management—one in which “command and control” management gives way to “connect and collaborate” management. He argues that the model for such a system is not based on the flow of work through a diagram. Read Peter's Column to learn what he believes will define the future of BPM.

Back to the Future of BPM—2012-A Very Special Year
BPTrends, April 2013
This month, Peter Fingar urges managers to adopt the self-discipline of the Samurai. The purpose of the exercise is to build and maintain integrity, which in turn will build trust—a key component in compelling employees to “opt-in” and voluntarily make a commitment to the communities they work in. Peter aptly summarizes the principles of Samurai leadership as presented in Samurai Business: The Way of the Warrior for Professionals in the Digital Century by Joris Merks, a Research Manager for Google who also happens to be a jiu-jitsu champion.

A 21st Century Business Lexicon
BPTrends, February 2013
You may think you know the language of business, but, do you really? Since we are still using vocabulary that emerged out of the industrial revolution, Peter Fingar thinks it's high time for an update. Here he provides a lexicon for the 21st century, from Affective Computing through Workforce Mobility. He hopes readers will have some terms to add and urges you to weigh in on the BPTrends LinkedIn site.

Agent-Oriented BPM (aoBPM) and a Confession
BPTrends, December 2012
Peter Fingar contends that intelligent agents are poised to transform the way we model the enterprise and build information systems. In the first part of this two-part Column, he explores the what and why of this advanced technology and the business and technical benefits and implications. In part two, he explores how to apply the paradigm to business and explains the relationship with BPM technology. His confession offers a surprise ending to this visionary Column.

Back to the Future of BPM—2012-A Very Special Year
BPTrends, October 2012
In this month's Column, Peter Fingar provides a summary of the literature that influenced the BPM movement. He begins with the First Wave in the 1920`s and proceeds to the Second and Third Waves in the 1990`s and early 2000`s. We have entered the Fourth Wave which Peter has dubbed, “Thriving in the Digital Pangea and Global Innovation Economy.” Read his Column to learn Peter's insights into how organizations will need to adapt to survive in the Fourth Wave.

Innovation Process
BPTrends, June 2012
In these days of extreme competition, Peter Fingar urges BPM practitioners to think beyond the usual processes and to include innovation in the play book as well. In his Column this month, Peter provides a detailed discussion of how to execute and implement a sustainable innovation program in your organization.

An Architecture for Innovation
BPTrends, April 2012
Peter Fingar asks, “How do you make innovation a repeatable and sustainable Process?” To achieve that end, he proposes that you develop an Innovation Architecture or operating environment just as you develop an Enterprise Architecture. He offers a high level illustration of an Innovation Architecture with guidelines to help you develop it.

Call Your Broker – The Rise of Cloud Service Brokerages
BPTrends, February 2012
Peter Fingar predicts that over the next few years, we will see some key trends developing that will change the IT services industry as a result of the emergence of cloud computing. Peter believes that companies will reach outside their internal IT departments and call in outside IT services companies that offer top-tier technology talent in cloud computing. Read Peter's Column for his valuable insights into what the future holds for the IT services industry.

Consider Big Data the Most Important Thing for Business since the Internet
BPTrends, December 2011
No stranger to reporting on innovative ideas in business, this month Peter Fingar explores the meaning of and the implications for business of Big Data. He believes that Big Data is all about delivering new insights to decision makers. Historically, data analytics software has relied on representative samplings to render results. That approach is changing with the emergence of new Big Data analytics engines. Interested? Read the whole story in his Column.

The Audacity of Innovation
BPTrends, October 2011
Peter Fingar asserts that today's reality is “innovate or die.” In his Column this month, he offers 21 perspectives and key variables to be included in the work of business innovation and challenges you to use the checklist to test your knowledge of what he describes as the new taxonomy for business innovation. If you are involved in any way in your organization's ability to innovate, we urge you to accept Peter's challenge.

Business Innovation Dogfight in the Cloud.
BPTrends, July 2011
John R. Boyd, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot trainer known as the “Father of the F-16,” was Peter Fingar’s inspiration for this Column. Boyd successfully trained his pilots to outmaneuver enemy pilots flying significantly superior aircraft. Peter suggests that by applying Boyd’s techniques, companies could outmaneuver competitors that are bigger, better, stronger and faster. Details inside.

Listening Posts, Sockpuppets, Trolls, Drones and Trust (Feature)
BPTrends, May 2011

Peter Fingar contends that we’ve moved beyond BPM 2.0 and are already in BPM 3.0—a realm in which social networks drive the conversation about your company. Traditional market research techniques won’t work in today’s world. Read Peter’s Column to learn more about BPM 3.0 and whether or not you are a sockpuppet.

BRICsInnovation and Blowback
BPTrends, March 2011
There's a new game in the business world called BRICs
Innovation and Blowback. Innovations are now starting to flow from the world's emerging markets: Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC). What effect will this have on the world as we know it? Peter suggests that to withstand the impact of this cataclysmic shift, it's time to rethink the structure of our companies and move away from a "top management" organization. For details of his proposed restructuring, as well as some astonishing economic data, read his thought provoking Column.

The Meaning of 21st Century Business--Unleashing the Power within Using Social Networks
BPTrends, January 2011
If, as Peter Fingar contends, social networking is working its way into the definition of a successful enterprise, what can you do to ensure that your organization survives in this world of "business as unusual?" Peter exhorts us to get beyond the hype curve and look within our own public and private communities for inspiration. Read his compelling view of the "dizzying world we live in."

Process on Demand and Cloud Services
BPTrends, November 2010
In his Column this month, Peter Fingar argues that without BPM, the Cloud remains a passive environment that can save an organization money and eliminate some operational headaches. But, adding a process layer to the Cloud can revolutionize the way business services are created and consumed and can provide an organization with a significant competitive advantage.

Fractal Enterprise Architecture and BPM - Can UML or BPMN Model a Cloud?
BPTrends, September 2010
Peter Fingar contends that existing Enterprise Architecture approaches and today's BPM systems lack the flexibility to accommodate Cloud based, loosely coupled, stateless architectures. These architectures feature complex business ecosystems made up of large numbers of participants spread across the globe. Peter's solution? An agent-oriented BPM. Read his Column to learn precisely what that term means and to learn how you can respond to Peter's questions and participate in an on-going discussion of agent-oriented BPM.

Whither the CIO?
BPTrends, June 2010
In an environment where customers are increasingly turning to Social Networks for information required to make purchasing decisions, and where internal business units are increasingly turning to Cloud service providers for the resources required to get work done, what is the role of the CIO? Peter sees the next generation CIO as a strategic agent for business transformation.

Enterprise as a Service (EaaS) - That's Where BPM Comes In
BPTrends, April 2010
Are you in the Larry Ellison camp and wonder, "What the hell is cloud computing?" And furthermore, do you wonder, "What does it have to do with BPM?" If these are questions you've asked in the middle of all the hype around cloud computing, Peter offers some answers. Read his Column for his take on how BPM sets enterprise cloud computing apart from consumer cloud computing and why it will provide a competitive advantage, in the 21st century, to companies that embrace it.

Social Networks, Innovation and the MITH Myth
BPTrends, February 2010
Fingar turns his attention to the compelling topic of social networks and their relevancy to the changing role of information technology in business. He sees social networks not as time-wasters but as a new source of business intelligence - places where work gets done and innovation is born. Your boss may not agree, but you should read Peter's Column and form your own opinion.

Cloud Computing: It's about Management Innovation
BPTrends, December, 2009
Fingar describes the power of process-driven Cloud Computing and suggests that organizations taking a wait and see attitude are traveling at their own risk. In fact, he posits that the best way to undermine your competitors is to tell them that Cloud Computing is just a bunch of hype.

Service Process Management (Feature)
BPTrends, October 2009
This month, Peter Fingar turns his focus to service science and its application to BPM. Although the service sector represents 70% to 80% of the GDP in advanced economies, little has been done to take on services as the object of BPM initiatives. Peter offers his perspective on why this is so and predicts that service process management, when it does emerge, will not be your father's BPM. Find out if you are ready for the leap from BPM to SPM.
