Supercharge your cognitive understanding with the Watson IoT Academy – a free-to-use online hub offering hundreds of courses that range from the fundamentals of IoT to understanding its complexities in greater depth.

Why learn about IoT and IBM’s Watson IoT offerings?

Cognitive computing represents a new era of computing, radically different from conventional programmable systems. Where older systems are based on a rigid, mathematically derived decision tree approach, cognitive computing takes advantage of today’s wealth of big data to find answers in previously inaccessibly places.

In the world of cognitive IoT you can collect and analyze data from sensors that transform ordinary objects into connected resources of information.

Using Watson IoT’s offerings you can bring together data from millions of sensors into a single platform. From there you can analyze that data using cognitive and industry specific applications and turn insight into action to improve product development, asset management or facilities management.

Discover your IoT potential and earn respected IBM credentials

Since its release last year, the Watson IoT Academy has welcomed over 17,000 users across 124 countries and seen over 59,000 course enrolments. Through it you can understand which IoT solutions might be right for you and the practicalities around their adoption. We have courses to help guide you through key areas such as:

  • Using IoT to connect business operations and improve operational efficiency
  • How connecting products using IoT can improve product development
  • How to connect and analyze data from sensors using Watson

You can earn widely-recognised and valued IBM credentials through our open badge program, to quickly share proof of your learning and achievement wherever you choose.

The Watson IoT Academy is open to everyone. Just create an IBM ID to login, and you’ll be able to navigate hundreds of courses, save your progress and quickly resume previously begun training by viewing your profile.
