IBM Watson for Healthcare Hands-on workshop

IBM Watson for Healthcare Hands-on workshop


Cognitive computing refers to systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally.

Cognitive systems are probabilistic. They generate not just answers to numerical problems, but hypotheses, reasoned arguments and like return on investment, new market opportunities, diseases cured and lives saved.

Gartner estimates that the world’s information will grow by 800 percent in the
next five years, and that 80 percent of that data will be unstructured. It includes everything humans have recorded in language (from textbooks to poems), captured in images (CAT scans to family photos) and recorded in sounds. It is the data hidden in aromas, tastes, textures and vibrations.

Here is the opportunity for you explore..
