Imagination is more important than knowledge.

3:40 pm

I do believe imagination is more important than knowledge!

http://www.history.com/news/history-lists/9-things-you-may-not-know-about-albert-einstein
Today I have read a article related to "9 Things You May Not Know About Albert Einstein", so I would like to share something about Einstein. I heard this name when I was studying in secondary school as I had to learn about the theory of relatively.

http://listovative.com/top-12-people-highest-iq-world/
Albert Einstein had an IQ of 160. This is the same IQ level as Stephen Hawking. Einstein was born in Germany on March 14, 1879. Even as a child Albert Einstein was interested in science. He was also a great music lover and played the violin and piano. He taught himself geometry when he was 12. He found school life difficult because of the strict discipline and left when he failed an exam at the age of 16. He became a Swiss citizen in 1901 and married Mileva Maritsch that same year. He worked in a patent office in Bern from 1902 until 1909. It was during this period that he obtained his Doctorate degree and published four research papers, including one on the topic of the Special Theory of Relativity, which featured the well known equation "e=mc2."

In 1909 Einstein began working as Professor Extraordinary in Zurich. In 1914, he became a German citizen again and worked at the University of Berlin. He married his second wife, who was also his cousin, in 1919. In 1921, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics. He moved to America in 1933 and took the position of Professor of Theoretical Physics at Princeton. After he retired he carried on enjoying physics until he died on April 18, 1955.

Einstein's brain was removed within seven and a half hours of his death. The brain of physicist Albert Einstein has been a subject of much research and speculation. This brain has attracted attention because of Einstein's reputation as one of the foremost geniuses of the 20th century, and apparent regularities or irregularities in the brain have been used to support various ideas about correlations in neuroanatomy with general or mathematical intelligence.

Salesforce and IBM enable a new level of intelligent customer engagement

10:06 am

IBM and Salesforce will deliver joint solutions designed to leverage artificial intelligence and enable companies to make smarter decisions, faster than ever before. The partnership will bring insights from Watson directly into the Salesforce Intelligent Customer Success Platform, combining deep customer insights from Salesforce Einstein with Watson's structured and unstructured data across many industries including healthcare, financial services, retail and weather.

Follow is a link to the interview on CNBC.com:

The deal has several parts. Among the most notable:
  1. IBM Watson APIs will be integrated into Salesforce. This means that companies using Salesforce will more easily be able to ingest information from IBM's Watson artificial intelligence platform, such as weather or local shopping patterns, according to the companies.
  2. The Weather Company, which IBM acquired in 2015, will provide a new component on the Salesforce AppExchange so that Salesforce customers can pull weather data more easily into their apps.
  3. Bluewolf, an IBM-owned consulting company, will offer a new practice to help customers combine IBM Watson with Salesforce's own artificial intellligence capabilities known as Einstein.
