Behind the Scenes
The Evolution of Watson
IBM Watson signals a critical turning point in the evolution of information technology. The era of cognitive computing, where computers can learn, reason and help us make better decisions, has arrived.
To make the most of this opportunity, IBM CEO Ginni Rometty formed the IBM Watson Group, to boost the development and adoption of cloud-delivered cognitive applications and services. These innovations span industries, and help drive progress for businesses and society.
We believe that the creativity of academic scientists, students, startup entrepreneurs and tech companies are required to fulfill the potential of cognitive computing technologies. That’s why we created the Watson Ecosystem of organizations that share our goals.
Watson technology is one of the most significant inventions in IBM’s history. Along with mobile, social and big data analytics technologies, it’s capable of transforming whole industries and improving the performance of the professionals who are essential to them.
