Watson meets KM ... elementary.
IBM Watson represents a new class of industry-specific analytic solutions that leverages deep content analysis and evidence-based reasoning to accelerate and improve decisions, reduce operational costs and optimize outcomes. Watson accomplishes all this based on a set of transformational technologies which leverage natural language, hypothesis generation and evidence-based learning. Watson is about bringing a unique combination of capabilities together in a way that's never been done before, resulting in a fundamental change in the way decisions are made. In this session, Malcolm will discuss the history of Watson, and how it has progressed from debuting on Jeopardy! to the being deployed in commercial solutions.
