Machine learning & cognitive computing
“Cognitive systems are inspired by the human brain, an organ that still has much to teach us.
—IBM scientist Arvind Sridhar
For several decades, the public has imagined sentient computers and robots that think and act like humans. However, it was always clear that this idea was a distant prospect.
Now we have entered the cognitive era where breakthroughs in computing are enhancing our ability to make sense of large bodies of data. This will provide guidance in making important decisions and revolutionizing industries.
