Dale Lane


Dale Lane has been a developer of IBM Watson since early 2011, after the work started to transition Watson from a Research project demonstrated on a quiz show to a commercial platform ready for industry. He now works on how we understand why Watson comes up with the answers that it does and what we can do to improve it, and the transition of the technology to an extensible platform. Prior to this, Dale spent several years as a member of IBM's Emerging Technologies division, creating prototypes and proof-of-concepts in social web and mobile, augmented and virtual realities, biometrics, the mining and analysis of Big Data, and technologies such as MQTT to build the infrastructure to enable the Internet of Things.
