The Ultimate Wearable Technology with IBM Watson

  1. 1. THE ULTIMATE WEARABLE DEVICE RAJESH SINGH
  2. 2. THE ULTIMATE WEARABLE DEVICE / TECHNOLOGY ▪ What if these were possible? ▪ Enter IBM Watson ▪ Is there a Market?
  3. 3. Elderly Care Personal Fitness Coach Health Care WHAT IF THESE WERE POSSIBLE?
  4. 4. ELDERLY CARE My mother in her late 70’s , gets up frequently at night and rushes to the washroom. A few months ago, she blacked out and sustained head injuries. Scans and medical tests did not show up any abnormality . For many years she has been under treatment for hypertension and Type –I diabetes. Medical specialists ascribe the fall to a sudden drop in blood pressure and this can happen to anyone. (c) Rajesh Singh 2014. All Rights Reserved 4 What if she had a device which monitored her condition and set off an alarm for her and for rest of the household prior to her getting out of bed?
  5. 5. PERSONAL FITNESS I exercise regularly. The duration and the intensity depends upon how I am feeling when I begin to exercise. I do not know if I have a medical condition and should be avoiding certain exercises or if I should be working out at a higher intensity for a longer duration. I also eat in moderation with occasional binging. What if I had a 24x7 personal fitness coach who could guide me based on my age, my sleep pattern, health condition, time of day, season, weather, location, my mood and tell me how to workout, where to workout, what to eat and what to avoid?
  6. 6. HEALTHCARE Many people suffer from chronic ailments like hypertension, cholesterol, diabetes, thyroid problems, etc. The list of ailments go on and on. Many of these require regular visit to the clinic for tests and fine tuning of the medication. What if you do not have to visit a doctor repeatedly, yet he knows your condition on an ongoing basis and pro-actively suggests changes in medication to you?
  7. 7. ARE THESE SCENARIOS POSSIBLE?
  8. 8. What is Watson ? How can it Revolutionalize Wearable Tech? ENTER IBM WATSON
  9. 9. Natural Language Watson can read and understand natural language, important in analyzing unstructured data that make up as much as 80 percent of data today. Hypothesis Generation When asked a question, Watson relies on hypothesis generation and evaluation to rapidly parse relevant evidence and evaluate responses from disparate data. Dynamic Learning Through repeated use, Watson literally gets smarter by tracking feedback from its users and learning from both successes and failures. Watson is a cognitive technology that processes information more like a human than a computer—by understanding natural language, generating hypotheses based on evidence, and learning as it goes. And learn it does. Watson “gets smarter” in three ways: by being taught by its users, by learning from prior interactions, and by being presented with new information. This means organizations can more fully understand and use the data that surrounds them, and use that data to make better decisions. IBM Watson: Fueling a New Era of Cognitive Apps Watson represents a first step into cognitive systems, a new era of computing. It uses programmatic computing plus the combination of three additional capabilities that make Watson truly unique: natural language processing, hypothesis generation and evaluation, and dynamic learning. While none of these capabilities is unique to Watson by itself, the combination delivers the power to move beyond programmatic computing and unlock the world of global, unstructured data. With Watson technology, we can move from a keyword-based search that provides a list of locations to an intuitive, conversational means of discovering a set of confidence-ranked responses.

  10. 10. “The power of Watson to bring information and data together, [and] make it relevant where decisions are being made, turns it into knowledge at the point where it can make a difference.” —Lori Beer, Executive Vice President, WellPoint, Inc http://www-03.ibm.com/innovation/us/watson/pdf/WellPoint_Case_Study_IMC14792.pdf WHAT IS IBM WATSON ?
  11. 11. HOW CAN IBM WATSON REVOLUTIONIZE WEARABLE TECH? Imagine your wearable device monitoring your location, temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, chemicals in your sweat, etc. at a millisecond level, 24x7 and sending these to Watson (hosted on a cloud) periodically. Now imagine that Watson has your complete location, your health records, all medical literature and research ever published and based on your data analytics, gives the thresholds and working ranges to your wearable device, your laptop and to your physician. Similarly, any alert generated by the wearable device or Watson triggers off alarms at the nearest health care provider, at near and dear ones and at the physician’s place.

  13. 13. IS THERE A MARKET?
  14. 14. “The wearable band market is really about the consumerization of health,” added Canalys Analyst Daniel Matte in a statement. “There will be exciting innovations that disrupt the medical industry this year, and with the increased awareness about personal wellbeing they will bring to users, having a computer on your wrist will become increasingly common.” The wearables device market is still in its infancy but it’s growing fast — with more than 17 million wearable bands forecast to ship this year, according to a new forecast by Canalys. It reckons 2014 will be the year that wearables become a “key consumer technology,” and is predicting the smart band segment alone will reach 8 million annual shipments, growing to more than 23 million units by 2015 and over 45 million by 2017.
