How Mercedes Answers Car Manual Queries with Watson When was the last time you read your car’s user manual? Do you know each feature of the car you are driving? Do you know the official names for these features? The complexity and number of features in cars are constantly rising. These features help you drive safer, save fuel, navigate easier or improve convenience—but only when used. The goal of the initial Ask Mercedes project is to provide fun and engaging information about the features of a car, easy accessible via voice of the customer. See how Daimler and IBM realized this idea within Watson Assistant, and how it evolved. Learn about the challenges that Daimler and IBM faced and overcame together in an enterprise environment to scale the Daimler virtual assistant globally.

Arthritis Research UK partnered with IBM’s Watson team to help develop a virtual assistant that could provide focused help and guidance to arthritis sufferers at any hour of the day or night, seven days a week. The solution utilizes a number of Watson services and is hosted on the IBM Cloud.
