Artificial intelligence is here.
IBM’s Watson, the latest in cognitive computing, is about Big Data. It is about ingesting vast amounts of information on specific subjects—medicine, law, travel, retail, metallurgy, oil and gas, whatever—and allowing a user to query the data to look for patterns, assist in a diagnosis, assist in a legal argument, make a decision on where to drill for oil, almost anything. Able to answer questions in natural language, rather than key word searching, makes Watson able to enhance, scale, and accelerate human expertise like no other.
