Video: IoT made simple with Watson IoT Platform (03:17)

Create your IoT solution using the Watson IoT Platform

Automatically link spoken words to the user’s meaning and intent, and correlate with other sources of data to put interactions into context of specific solutions.


Automate data processing and rank data based on learned priorities. Machine Learning can be applied to IoT data to automatically understand current conditions and expected trends, and then suggest actions when issues arise.


Monitor unstructured data from video feeds and image snapshots to identify scenes and patterns in video data. Apps can combine this data with machine data to gain a greater understanding of past events and emerging situations.


Mine unstructured textual data, including transcripts from call centers, technician maintenance logs and blog comments to find correlations and patterns in the vast amounts of data from these sources.
