Watson Discovery Features

Smart document understanding

Find real answers with less effort. Train your AI to understand your documents, distinguishing text elements as well as images and tables, and extract the most valuable content. Visually annotate only a handful of your documents, saving time while still returning great results.

Embedded NLP

Industry-leading natural language processing (NLP) capabilities are built-in. Easily extract sentiment, entities, concepts, semantic roles, and more.

Increase domain intelligence

Select from different training options to improve understanding and performance, from supervised learning with subject matter experts to ordering search results by importance. 


Rapid results

Spend less time struggling with your data. Automated ingestion and integrated natural language processing in a fully managed cloud service removes the complexity from dealing with natural language content.

Domain intelligence

Adapt Discovery’s understanding of your corpus with integrated machine learning to find the most relevant answers. Teach Discovery to apply knowledge of unique entities and relations in your industry or organization with Watson Knowledge Studio.

AI ready for business

Uncover deep connections throughout your data by using advanced AI functions out of the box, such as natural language queries, passage retrieval, relevancy training, relationship graphs and anomaly detection.

Find hidden insights to improve customer experience and scale expertise with Watson AI.
