    • Putting IBM Watson to WorkManoj SaxenaGeneral Manager, IBM Watson Solutions © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • On February 14, 2011, IBM Watson changed history introducing a system that rivaled a human’s ability to answer questions posed in natural language with speed, accuracy and confidence.  Watson Wins!  Largest Jeopardy! in 5 years  34.5M Jeopardy! Viewers  1.3B+ Impressions  Over 10,000 Media Stories  11,000 attend watch events  2.5M+ Videos Views (top 10 only)  10,897 Twitter  23,647 Facebook Fans1 © 2011 IBM Corporation

    • Agenda What is IBM Watson and why is it important? How is IBM putting Watson to work? What can we expect in the future?3 © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • The World is Getting Smarter + + = Instrumented Interconnected Intelligent An opportunity to think and act in new ways— economically, socially and technically.44 © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • Unstructured data is proliferating. . . … 249B e-mails (2.8M/sec) and 200M Tweets daily … 35 hours video uploaded to YouTube per minute In 2005 there were 1.3 billion RFID tags in circulation… … by 2010 there will be 33 billion. An estimated 2 billion people will be on the Web by 2011 ... … and a trillion connected objects – cars, appliances, cameras, roadways, pipelines5 © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • Businesses on a Smarter Planet are “dying of thirst in anocean of data” 90% of the 80% of the Traditional world’s data was world’s data technology solutions created in the today is only leverage 20% of last two years unstructured the available information 1 in 2 83% 5.4X Business leaders don’t of CIO’s cited BI and more likely that top have access to data analytics as part of their performers use they need visionary plan Business analytics6 © 2011 IBM Corporation Source: GigaOM, Software Group, IBM Institute for Business Value
    • Today’s business challenges are causing organizations torethink what it will take to get ahead tomorrow Emerging IT  Structured & unstructured (global) Traditional IT  Probabilistic Applications  Discovery Oriented  Structured data (local)  Small and Big Data  Deterministic Applications  Natural Language  Search Oriented  Small Data  Machine Language7 © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • Healthcare Industry is beset with some of the most complexinformation challenges we collectively face Medical information is doubling every 5 years, much of which is unstructured 81% of physicians report spending 5 hours or less per month reading medical journals “Medicine has become too complex (and only) about 20 percent of the knowledge clinicians use today is evidence-based.” Steven Shapiro, Chief Medical and Scientific Officer, UPMC8 © 2011 IBM Corporation
    • Why is it so hard for computers to understand humans Structured Data Unstructured Data Physicist Birth Place “One day, from among his city Where was A.
