ZDNet, US: Cognizant Digital Business Leaders Discuss Evolutionary AIeaders Discuss Evolutionary AI

"Deep learning is neither deep, nor is it learning," says Babak Hodjat, Vice President, Evolutionary AI.

Excerpts from ZDNet’s article:

“Hodjat's critique is part of a fascinating exploration of AI taking shape at IT services firm Cognizant Technology Solutions, a twenty-five-year-old company based in Teaneck, New Jersey that last year made nearly $16 billion in revenue serving some of the biggest companies in the world.

And then in December, Cognizant gave a whole new grounding and precision to that digital work by acquiring certain assets from an eleven-year-old AI startup Sentient Technologies.
