Understands the structure of business documents
With Smart Document Understanding (SDU) you can visually label the text within your enterprise documents (from headers and footers, to tables, and so on). This allows Watson Discovery to fully understand the structure of your documents. As a result, Watson Discovery will provide you with more accurate information and precise passages.
Delivers passages as answers
Unlike traditional enterprise search engines, which display a list of links to documents, Watson Discovery is cloud search that combs through your content and pinpoints the passage that you are looking for. When you ask a question, you receive a few passages and the source documents that host them to ensure that all of the information you need is easily accessible.
Increases answer relevancy over time
Control which answers are displayed given a specific query. Watson Discovery allows you to provide this feedback in two ways. You can manually train Watson Discovery by providing feedback on possible results inside the tooling, or by enabling a real-time and continuous learning system in your search app powered by the feedback your users provide on the results displayed.
Personalize your experience
Interacts in natural language
You can communicate with Watson Discovery in multiple human dialects, including English, French, Arabic, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and Spanish.
Learns your domain space
Every discipline, enterprise, and industry has a specific lingo. Watson Discovery allows you to incorporate custom NLP models built with Watson Knowledge Studio to dictate the enrichment.
Enriches your content
The ability to make natural language queries on top of out-of-the-box NLP enrichments, such as entity extraction and sentiment analysis, provides an advantage over typical keyword search engines.
Finds patterns and trends with text analytics
Understand context, relationships, and patterns inside your data. In real-time, Content Mining allows you to search across your documents and explore text analytics results, relationships, and how different elements of your content change over time. For example, car manufacturers can monitor customer review trends on items such as brake systems of a specific car model. Watson Discovery understands the feedback, and connects it to a specific time and event – such as a big snowfall in February. Available only on Watson Discovery for Cloud Pak for Data.
Detects and understands contracts, invoices, and purchase orders
Content Intelligence is an optional component of Watson Discovery that enables out-of-the-box understanding of contracts, invoices, and purchase orders. These documents contain concepts, clauses, and entities that are unique to their domains. Content Intelligence can help your employees with cross-industry contract governance, and also assist enterprises prepare for the LIBOR transition. Available only on Watson Discovery for Cloud Pak for Data.
Narrows cloud search results with categories
Your documents can fall into one or more categories depending on their content. Watson Discovery enables you to assign several labels to a single document with Multi-Label-Classifier. This provides you with more control over your cloud search results. You can filter your document collections by category, allowing you to narrow the scope of results. For example, an article about learning how to invest can be tagged as both a ‘finance’ and ‘education’ document, making it easier to find. Available only on Watson Discovery for Cloud Pak for Data.
