Topic – Watson

 Madison Gooch  - Global Sales Leader: Watson Data Platform at IBM – is traveling from New York to talk to us about IBM Watson.  This will be an interesting and informative meeting!

What is Watson? 

Powered by the latest innovations in machine learning, Watson lets you learn more with less data. You can integrate AI into your most important business processes, informed by IBM’s rich industry expertise. You can build models from scratch, or leverage our APIs and pre-trained business solutions. No matter how you use Watson, your data and insights belong to you − and only you.

 Only Watson gives you complete control of what's important to you. With Watson on the IBM Cloud, you maintain ownership of your data, insights, training, and IP. Your business processes get smarter with Watson. From healthcare and education to finance, transportation, and energy, Watson is trained by leading experts in your field, so you can quickly embed into your existing workflows. Watson understands the language of your industry and taps into deep domain knowledge to help you make more informed decisions faster. Your data is valuable, no matter how much (or little) you have. Watson can ingest, enrich, and normalize a wide variety of data types without any additional integration, allowing you to make use of data from a broad range of sources with ease.
