How IBM And Microsoft Are Disrupting The Healthcare Industry With Cognitive Computing

Cognitive computing is the ability to simulate human thought process in a computerized model.

The availability of abundant compute and storage resources combined with the evolution of analytics is accelerating the adoption of cognitive computing.

Cognitive computing systems depend on various aspects of artificial intelligence (AI) such as machine learning, reasoning, natural language processing, speech and vision, human-computer interaction, dialog and narrative generation, and more. The machine learning algorithms learn and acquire knowledge from the massive amount of data fed into to them.

These systems get better with time as they keep refining the way they look for patterns and the inferences they can make from the datasets. Over a period, they become intelligent enough that can anticipate new problems and modeling possible solutions.

IBM Watson and Microsoft Cognitive Services are popular cognitive computing platforms that expose powerful capabilities through simple APIs. Though they were initially meant for developers, both the companies are building additional layers that are aligned with enterprise needs. Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite is an example of an enterprise artificial intelligence platform.
