IBM’s Cognitive Computing

Source: IBM website, May 2012

Cognitive  systems are capable of learning from their interactions with data and humans—essentially continuously reprogramming themselves. Traditional computers are designed to calculate rapidly. Cognitive systems are built to analyze information and draw insights from it. Traditional computers are organized around microprocessors. With cognitive systems, it’s about the data and drawing insights from it through analytics.

Because of these changes, the machines of the future will do much more than compute. They will be able to sense, learn and better predict the consequences of actions. In the years ahead, machines will cull insights from thevast amounts of information being gatheredto help us learn how the world really works, and make sense of all of that complexity, and provide trusted advice to humans …

Computing intelligence will become ubiquitous and pervasive. Increasingly, computers will offer advice, rather than waiting for commands.
