Project Intu: Bringing cognitive and IoT together

Share this post:

Project Intu IoT cognitiveA new, experimental program from IBM enables developers to imbue Internet of Things (IoT) systems — robots, drones, avatars and other devices — with the cognitive know-how of Watson.

Called Project Intu, the program makes it so that developers don’t have to program each individual movement and response of an IoT system. Project Intu provides the device with Watson conversation, speech-to-text, language and visual recognition capabilities, among others, so that it can respond naturally to user interactions. It can even trigger different behaviors or emotional responses based on what the user does.

“Project Intu allows users to build embodied systems that reason, learn and interact with humans to create a presence with the people that use them — these cognitive-enabled avatars and devices could transform industries like retail, elder care, and industrial and social robotics,” said Rob High, IBM Fellow, VP and CTO of IBM Watson.

Developers looking to try out Project Intu can do so through Watson Developer Cloud and Intu Gateway.
