Cognitive Computing is a tectonic shift in computing that uses the human brain/mind model: sense, reason, act, and learn. Devices and software are being developed in many different domains in order to make use of cognitive computing. Many applications and endeavors will benefit from cognitive computing implementations that process, analyze, and act upon "big data" and data from disparate sources (such as sensors, mobile devices, embedded and integrated devices, and "the cloud" as well as traditional computers, databases, and so on).
