  • What is cognitive computing? IBM describes the components used to develop, and behaviours resulting from, “systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally.” According to them, while sharing many attributes with the field of artificial intelligence, it differentiates itself via the complex interplay of disparate components, each of which comprises their own individual mature disciplines.
  • Watson: The first cognitive system

  • The first cognitive system was Watson, which debuted in a televised Jeopardy! the challenge where it bested the show’s two greatest champions. The challenge for Watson was to answer questions posed in every nuance of natural languages, such as puns, synonyms and homonyms, slang, and jargon.
  • Watson was not connected to the Internet for the match. It only knew what it had amassed through years of persistent interaction and learning from a large set of unstructured knowledge. Using machine learning, statistical analysis, and natural language processing to find and understand the clues in the questions, Watson then compared possible answers, by ranking its confidence in their accuracy, and responded – all in about three seconds.
