Earlier this month, state technology leaders gathered in Baltimore at the NASCIO Midyear Conference. Government Technology spoke with several state CIOs to get their thoughts on the potential cognitive computing might hold for government. Georgia Chief Technology Officer Steve Nichols says intelligent software may one day help the state provide more responsive citizen services.
