Watson harnesses your data
Discovery Advisor marries both your proprietary and external research data within your domain so that your research draws from the most relevant material.
Once your data has been integrated, it’s time for Watson to learn. Work with IBM to train Watson Discovery Advisor in cycles. Watson also ingests new information automatically as documentation and literature becomes available.
Discovery Advisor is trained and ready to evaluate and think like your top research expert. Unlock insights, visualize possibilities, and validate theories faster than ever.
Discovery Advisor at Work
Discovery Advisor has already made significant breakthroughs across multiple organizations and industries.
Baylor College of Medicine
To accelerate research that normally takes years to accomplish, Baylor College of Medicine and IBM teamed up to advance understanding of disease biology and surface information needed to develop safe and effective treatments. Biologists and data scientists used the Baylor Knowledge Integration Toolkit (KnIT), powered by Watson technology, to accurately identify proteins that modify p53, a key protein related to many cancers.
Watson evaluated and analyzed nearly 70,000 scientific articles on p53 to predict proteins that turn on or off p53's activity. As a result, cancer researchers recently found six potential proteins to target for new research, a dramatic increase from the average one protein discovery per year.
Johnson & Johnson
Drug effectiveness studies are typically done manually — it takes three people an average of 10 months just to collect the data and prepare it for use before they are able to start asking questions against it. This is a slow and expensive process in which it’s nearly impossible to take into account newly published papers and other information which could have a huge impact on the researcher’s findings.
Watson quickly synthesizes Johnson and Johnson’s body of data and allows researchers to start asking questions and determine drug effectiveness, rather than waiting several months to just to research and collect data.
For those in the Life Sciences field, Watson also comes armed with expertise. From the beginning, Discovery Advisor for Life Sciences understands field-specific lexicon in areas such as clinical trial data, genomics, and human anatomy.Find out more in the brochure
