Bloomberg Media and Intelligence Squared U.S. present a new limited debate series “That’s Debatable” hosted by Award-Winning Journalist and Moderator John Donvan and featuring AI from IBM Watson

The one-hour program will premiere on Bloomberg Television on Friday, October 9 at 7:00 PM Audiences can join the conversation now by submitting their arguments at IBM.com/debatable on the first debate topic: “It’s Time to Redistribute the Wealth” NEW YORK September 3, 2020 -- Bloomberg Media today announced a new interactive debate series titled “That’s Debatable,” to debut on Bloomberg Television Friday, October 9 at 7:00PM ET. Presented in partnership with Intelligence Squared U.S. and hosted by four-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, broadcaster and Intelligence Squared’s longtime debate moderator John Donvan, the program will feature industry leaders, economists, policy makers and public intellectuals debating some of today’s most pressing issues. “That’s Debatable” is sponsored exclusively by IBM. Filmed in front of a live virtual audience, “That’s Debatable” will be conducted in the traditional Oxford-style format with two teams of two subject matter experts debating over four rounds. The live audience will select a winner via mobile, to be announced at the conclusion of the program. The show will also demonstrate how AI can be used to bring a larger, more diverse range of voices and opinions to the public square and can help uncover new perspectives to enhance the debaters’ arguments. The general public is invited to submit a short argument for or against each episode’s position statement. During the debate, IBM Watson plans to use Key Point Analysis, a new capability in Natural Language Processing (NLP) developed by the same IBM Research team that created Project Debater, which is designed to analyze viewer submitted arguments and provide insight into the global public opinion on each episode’s debate topic. “Bloomberg Media’s global audience regularly turns to Bloomberg Television as a critical source of news and information,” said Al Mayers, Global Head of Bloomberg Television and Radio. “By partnering with Intelligence Squared for ‘That’s Debatable,’ we will provide viewers with thoughtful discourse and insights into some of the most important subjects currently at the forefront of national and global conversation.” “Globally, we are facing unprecedented and complex challenges,” said Intelligence Squared U.S. CEO Clea Conner. “In this era of seemingly endless soundbites and social media echo chambers, it is harder than ever before to truly engage with the other side of an issue. At this historic moment, we are calling for a return to civilized and substantive debate to help us navigate a rapidly changing world. Together with Bloomberg TV, and our exclusive sponsor IBM, ‘That’s Debatable’ will explore multiple viewpoints of the most important topics of our time -- and give a voice to a global audience with Watson’s advanced AI analysis.” The debut episode’s debate topic is: “It’s Time to Redistribute the Wealth.” As nations around the world face a reckoning on race and social justice and work to combat the economic impacts of the pandemic, “That’s Debatable” will take a hard look at the hotly contested question with leading experts on both sides of the argument. Audiences can join in the discussion by submitting a short argument for or against the motion: "It's time to redistribute the wealth" starting today through September 14 at www.ibm.com/debatable. Then tune into “That's Debatable” on October 9 to see a debate fueled in part by your submission. "Our ambition for ‘That’s Debatable’ is simple -- to showcase one of the many ways AI can be used for good by helping people understand nuanced viewpoints, discover and surface critical insights, and inform high stakes decision making,” said Daniel Hernandez, General Manager, IBM Data and AI. “What we learned from over 30,000 Watson client engagements inspired IBM Research to create cutting-edge innovation in language, automation and building trust, which will be demonstrated in the series and made available in Watson for all businesses to use.” About Bloomberg Media: Bloomberg Media is a leading, global, multi-platform brand that provides decision-makers with timely news, analysis and intelligence on business, finance, technology, climate change, politics and more.

IBM and The Climate Service to Work Together with Financial Institutions and Corporations to Assess the Cost of Climate Risk

Collaboration to Provide Organizations an IBM Cloud-based Platform to Measure, Quantify and Disclose Climate Risk ARMONK, N.Y. and DURHAM, N.C., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) and The Climate Service (TCS), a leader in climate risk analytics for investors and businesses, today announced their alliance to work with financial institutions and corporations to better measure and quantify risks associated with climate change. As part of the alliance, the companies are now making the TCS Climanomics® software platform available via Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud. This alliance between IBM and TCS makes TCS's advanced science available with enterprise-grade levels of scalability, availability, security, and interoperability. The companies are working together to help organizations put a price on climate risk and facilitate reporting consistent with the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) framework. The alliance will also leverage the experience of IBM Services in financial risk, analytics, weather risk, and compliance, to use the Climanomics® platform to provide climate risk analytics to clients across all sectors, including global financial services leaders, industrial corporations, and energy providers. "At a time when markets and investors are demanding climate risk transparency and quantification, IBM is committed to providing cloud-based climate risk solutions to the financial services sector and critical infrastructure industries such as industrial, consumer, energy, and utilities," said Dr. Murray Simpson, IBM's Global Lead for Sustainability, Climate & Transition. "This collaboration with The Climate Service will provide clients financial insights that are based on the most advanced available science and technology. As we work with clients to integrate critical insights into their business decision-making, our goal is to inform their strategy and help them remain competitive and resilient." "With the TCFD framework now supported by organizations globally, demand for the Climanomics® platform has been growing fast," says James McMahon, CEO of The Climate Service. "With IBM's advanced technology and global experience, this work will scale quickly so we can accelerate progress on our mission to embed climate risk into global decision-making." "Climate change presents the markets, as well as society as a whole, with an exponential challenge. Through this collaboration we will offer solutions using the power of world-class science and technology," continued McMahon. IBM and TCS signed their alliance agreement in October 2019, and the two companies have been collaborating for the past year, building a go-to-market strategy. This announcement is made on the heels of the collaboration reaching several milestones that enabled the TCS Climanomics® software platform to be available on Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, as well as the commencement of a joint effort to find ways to help global financial and energy companies measure climate risk. About The Climate ServiceThe Climate Service provides climate risk analytics to investors and businesses. With support from an unparalleled scientific team and advisors including four IPCC Nobel Prize-winning scientists, The Climate Service built its Climanomics® analytics platform to enable reporting and disclosure consistent with the TCFD framework. The platform empowers decision-making by putting a price on both transition and physical risk and supports long-term, strategic planning with 'one-click' property/asset and portfolio-level analysis, and multiple climate scenarios covering present-day to the year 2100. Insights from the platform help investors and businesses manage risk, build resilience, and drive change. Forrester Research named The Climate Service as "Leader", the highest designation possible, in its Climate Risk Analytics New Wave 2020.
