IBM has been thinking about video for some time and sees it as an increasingly important content type, says Jim Comfort, general manager of cloud services at IBM. “Video will represent 65 percent of Internet traffic going forward,” he said.

IBM’s CEO Ginni Rometty will reportedly announce details of the company’s plans to advance blockchain technology at a conference Tuesday, including plans to test its own version of the blockchain software during 2016 and its ongoing collaboration with the Hyperledger project. IBM is among a number of companies that have contributed code to the Hyperledger project, which is run by the Linux Foundation, and seeks to build an open source repository of blockchain code that will address current gaps in technology. “The Hyperledger Project is a collaborative effort to focus on an open platform that will satisfy a variety of use cases across multiple industries to streamline business processes,” the foundation said in a statement.

Poetry does not necessarily have to have ordered/regular standards.Poetry is evocative. It typically evokes in the reader an intense emotion: joy, sorrow, anger, catharsis, love and the like.Poetry has the ability to surprise the reader with an Ah Ha! Experience — revelation, insight, further understanding of elemental truth and beauty.

I'd mentioned a month ago in the Trading With Cody Chat Room that I was excited about the potential for IBM's (IBM) Watson product, and the artificial intelligence it might enable in years ahead. A recent Fortune article discussed one Watson application: "The cognitive computing wunderkind, known for its winning turn on Jeopardy, is pairing its artificial intelligence with the mobile sensing power of Apple's (AAPL) smart watch to create a health platform that can interact and adapt to each individual user.
