The IBM Watson™ Discovery service makes it possible to rapidly build cognitive, cloud-based exploration applications that unlock actionable insights hidden in unstructured data — including your own proprietary data, as well as public and third-party data.
This is the architecture of a complete Discovery service solution:
With Discovery, it only takes a few steps to prepare your unstructured data, create a query that will pinpoint the information you need, and then integrate those insights into your new application or existing solution.
How does Discovery do it? By using data analysis combined with cognitive intuition to take your unstructured data and enrich it so you can discover the information you need.
IBM Watson™ Discovery brings together a functionally rich set of integrated, automated Watson APIs to:
Watson Discovery News, a public data set that has been pre-enriched with cognitive insights, is also included with Discovery. You can also use this public, unstructured data set to query for insights that you can integrate into your applications. Watson Discovery News is a dataset of primarily English language news sources that is updated continuously, with approximately 300,000 new articles and blogs added daily. See a demo of what you can build with Watson Discovery News here.
The Discovery service is available on Bluemix
