Watson DevCon 2016 - The Future of Discovery: Deep Insights with Cognitive APIs

Presentation given by Elliot Turner at Watson DevCon 2016.
Finding actionable insights in the ever-growing volume of public and private data is an increasingly complex challenge. The problem is compounded when much of the available data is unstructured. In this session, you’ll see the current state and a glimpse into the future of Watson’s tools for data insights, and you’ll learn how these services can help you make sense of unstructured data, improve business intelligence, eliminate risk, and take action.

Watson DevCon 2016 - The Future of Discovery: Deep Insights with Cognitive APIs

  1. 1. The  Future  of  Discovery Deep  Insights  via  Cognitive  APIs   Elliot  Turner November  9,  2016
  2. 2. 2 IBM’s statements  regarding  its  plans,  directions,  and  intent  are  subject  to change  or withdrawal without  notice   and  at  IBM’s sole  discretion. Information  regarding potential  future  products  is  intended  to  outline  our  general  productdirection  and  it  should   not  be  relied  on  in  making  a  purchasing  decision. The  information  mentionedregarding  potential  future  products  is  not  a  commitment,  promise,  or legal   obligation  to  deliver  any  material,  code  or functionality.  Information  about  potential  future products  may not  be   incorporated  into  any  contract. The development,  release,  and  timing  of  any  future  features  or functionality  described  for  our  products  remains   at  our  sole  discretion. Performance  is  based  on measurements  and  projections  using  standard  IBM  benchmarks  in  a controlled   environment.  The  actual  throughput  or  performance  that  any user  will  experience  will vary  depending  upon   many  factors,  including  considerations such  as  the  amount  of  multiprogramming  in  the  user’s  job  stream,   the I/O  configuration,  the  storage  configuration,  and  the workloadprocessed.  Therefore,  no  assurance  can  be   given  that  an  individual user  will  achieve  results  similar  to  those  stated  here. Please  note
