IBM Predictive Analytics renamed IBM Watson Machine Learning Service

As of October 25, 2016, we are changing the name of the IBM Predictive Analytics service. The new name is “IBM Watson Machine Learning”.

Our new name reflects the direction we are taking to provide deeper and more sophisticated self-learning capabilities as well as enhanced model management and deployment functionality within the service. This cognitive ability for computers and models to learn and evolve without changes having to be explicitly programmed is best understood within the analytics space as “Machine Learning” and so we are aligning our service name with this terminology.

All the capabilities of the existing offering including model repository and service APIs will not be impacted so you will not need to make any alterations as a result of this name change. Additionally, there is no change to current charge metrics or prices.

Watch this blog for these new capabilities as they are rolled out over the coming months.
