What is IBM’s Watson Works?

By N.F. Mendoza

Watson Works is a new curated set of workplace products from IBM that embeds Watson artificial intelligence (AI) into the return-to-workplace issues that the enterprise must overcome in order to figure out when to safely send employees back to the office. Some of the key items that the models and applications will address include space allocation and facilities management, which are essential in a post-COVID-19 pandemic environment.

With Watson already in play, IBM began to look at its underlying product technology to extend the scope of artificial intelligence. When the pandemic sent employees to work from home, “we began to focus on how we could bring these together,” said Kareem Yusuf, general manager of AI applications at IBM…

One of the many safety issues to consider when planning the return to the workplace post pandemic is occupancy monitoring, which ensures social distancing amongst co-workers, Yusuf said. IBM started with “lightweight things like existing Wi-Fi,” and contemplated how “to build those instrumentations. That was a starting point. Now flip that into the COVID era.” With location detection already available, IBM knew it applied to how employers had to consider certain levels of occupancy, and apply the same logic to social distancing, he said…

How can you enhance TRIRIGA Workplace Services Apps with A.I.?


Introducing the TRIRIGA Assistant: Enhancing TRIRIGA Workplace Services Apps with Artificial Intelligence

By Alex Melamed

Wouldn’t it be nice if your office started to act more like a team player? For employees, that would mean effortless engagement with workplace services. For facility managers, that would mean more engaged and delighted occupants who provide feedback to keep the workplace not just humming but evolving.

IBM TRIRIGA just announced numerous enhancements to the workplace experience in the latest release (10.6.1). Among these enhancements, the all new TRIRIGA Assistant. The TRIRIGA Assistant is a smart, conversational A.I. assistant, which is the same frictionless technology that we all have in our homes, and which is another way to meet the ever-growing expectations of the workforce. This A.I. assistant can help users find and reserve meeting rooms, report maintenance issues correctly, and even locate where a colleague sits. And that is just the beginning.

With the introduction of the TRIRIGA Assistant into the facility management portfolio, IBM has invited Watson to the office. The TRIRIGA Assistant is powered by IBM’s Watson Assistant platform. It’s robust and able to be extended to support custom A.I. skills and capabilities within an enterprise-grade secure cloud…

How do you equip your TRIRIGA chariot with fierce stallions?


There’s an old metaphor originating from Plato that compares the soul to that of a chariot with a pair of winged horses. Chariots of the gods were equipped with two good horses, while us mere mortals were given one good horse and one bad, unruly horse, depicting the conflicts of the soul. Due to this imbalance, we would always face hardships. But those of us who could put that unruliness to use could potentially rise high enough to hang with the gods.

What does this have to do with IBM TRIRIGA and hanging out at TRIMAX this week? Not a whole lot, I just like to throw out fascinating metaphors. However, if you’re looking to power up your facilities “chariot” with the fiercest of good stallions, and corral the unruliness of unused data,  you may want to read on.

The five fierce stallions of 2017

When it comes to fierce stallions, why have 2 when you can have 5? And when you’re talking about investments around TRIRIGA, the more the merrier.  Here are the top 5 stallions driving the chariot of your facilities management efforts this year:

  • 1. New lease accounting standards drive compliance domination…
  • 2. Analytics help you understand the performance of your chariot…
  • 3. Cloud isn’t just for mythical gods…
  • 4. Mobility enables the business to soar from anywhere…
  • 5. User experience (UX) drives Herculean engagement…

[Admin: What does TRIRIGA mean? A tririga (trī-ˈrē-gə) is a team of three horses yoked three abreast, commonly associated with the use of chariots during the Roman Empire. To see other related posts, use the TRIMAX tag.]
