Reveal unseen insights in your data

IBM Watson® Discovery makes it possible to rapidly build cognitive, cloud-based exploration applications that surface unseen and actionable insights hidden in unstructured data with features powered by natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning.

Understands your document structure

Smart Document Understanding (SDU) is a visual machine learning tool that enables users to label text so that the tool builds an understanding of critical components inside your enterprise documents, such as headers, tables, and more. Once you annotate a few pages of your documents, SDU can teach itself the rest, retrieving answers and information only from relevant content.

Surfaces insights with text mining

Content mining uses natural language processing to understand context and relationships in text. As a result, search across your documents to surface patterns, trends, anomalies, and the evolution of elements in your content in near real-time.

Search bar and the answer it presents

Delivers passages as answers

Traditional enterprise search engines perform keyword searches and provide end-users with links to documents. But with Watson Discovery, you'll get specific passages that possess the relevant information and its source documents using semantic search. The design of this platform ensures that all the information you need is easily accessible.
