This got me thinking about where & how the media processing has evolved over the years and has rode its own 'waves' to where we are today.

Being born and raised in Buffalo, NY, I've heard every joke and stereotype imaginable: 

  • Yes, I know the acronym for BILLS is Boy, I Love Losing SuperBowls....
  • No, Buffalo is not basically part of Canada, eh...

by Vince Puglia

WebRTC and Cognitive Computing are two technologies that are undoubtedly transforming industries but perhaps the velocity of change comes from how easy it is to integrate these two technologies. Cloud-Platforms-as-a-Service (CPaaS) companies like Telestax are enabling web developers to easily add real-time communications to any application through their rapid service creation environment RestComm. Then Cognition-as-a-Service companies like IBM Watson continue to push what artificial intelligence can achieve and provide an easy RESTFul based interface. Combine these two elements and get a cognitive communications that can be used in almost any vertical. From emotional analysis in the contact center to ensure customers are satisfied after every call to smartbot agents capable of handling customer inquiries via SMS - it's all possible with cognitive communications.

How to Make a WebRTC App: Step-by-Step Guide

Back in September 2014, I published what turned out to be a popular blog about “How to Develop a WebRTC Video Conferencing Server Using PowerMedia XMS, Free in An Hour”.
