Watson wants to make data analytics as simple to execute as a Google search.
The Watson Data Platform is an AI-based cognitive system capable of answering questions posed in natural language.
By eliminating the need to communicate via icons and drop-down menus, the level of technical expertise required to interact with Watson drops to zero, dismantling a huge technical barrier between humans and machines.
No need for years of schooling in engineering, math, or statistics. No menus. No command lines. No search language. No boolean operators. No confusion. No complexity.
Watson’s natural language processing enables “citizen analysts” to run queries and discover insights previously owned and operated by professional business analysts, Chief Analytics Officers (CAOs), data scientists, marketing technologists, and statisticians.
The Watson Data Platform is the world’s first cloud-based data and analytics platform to support cognitive businesses.
“Cognitive businesses” use cognitive systems like Watson to turn raw data into intelligence and advantage by extracting new insights, and then applying those insights to outperform their competitors.
We believe the IBM Watson Data Platform is the leading AI and cognitive platform, and that it has the power to disrupt entire industries.
Watson will enable the rise of CITIZEN ANALYSTS at COGNITIVE ORGANIZATIONS in both the public and private sectors, and we believe these developments are very positive – not only for industry, but also for humanity.
