Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed in IBM's DeepQA project by a research team led by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Watson received the first place prize of $1 million. Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of disk storage including the full text of Wikipedia, but was not connected to the Internet during the game. For each clue, Watson's three most probable responses were displayed on the television screen. Watson consistently outperformed its human opponents on the game's signaling device, but had trouble in a few categories, notably those having short clues containing only a few words. In February 2013, IBM announced that Watson software system's first commercial application would be for utilization management decisions in lung cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in conjunction with health insurance company WellPoint. IBM Watson's former business chief Manoj Saxena says that 90% of nurses in the field who use Watson now follow its guidance.

Watson has come a long way since it won on the American quiz show Jeopardy! in 2011. Back then, it did one thing: natural language Q&A, powered by five technologies. Today, Q&A is just one of more than 30 Watson capabilities—all of which have been turned into digital services, or Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), delivered via the cloud. This means that we can literally build cognition into everything digital. With Watson, every digital application, product and process can understand, reason and learn. You can see why cognitive is becoming the heart of our solutions businesses. What started as one Watson unit is now a growing family: the core Watson team, which continues to build new capabilities and nurture its expanding ecosystem; and individual Watson businesses, aimed at particular industries or professional domains, such as IBM Watson Health and IBM Watson Internet of Things. Each business brings together Watson capabilities with industry expertise, vast data sets and an ecosystem of partners and clients, and each is powered by the IBM Cloud.
By 2018, 33% of all industry leaders will be disrupted by digitally enabled competitors (Source: IDC) Be a disruptor by developing and deploying an IoT strategy so you can tap into the value of connecting the unconnected. IoT is becoming critical for organizations today to understand where new sources of value could come from in their industry – whether it is from operational efficiencies, better customer experiences, safety or even new revenue models. Dell Technologies can help you become a disruptive force in your industry through IoT. We bring: • The industry’s broadest infrastructure portfolio • A curated technology and services partner program • Proven use case-specific solution blueprints
The Internet of Things (IoT) does not need to be complicated. It doesn’t have to be about billions or trillions of devices. The Internet of Things is here today, and it’s a practical and applicable technology trend that can generate return on investment (ROI) and drive efficiencies and insights for organizations that know how to use it. The advancements in connectivity, processing power, form factors, operating systems, and applications, among other technology breakthroughs, are key elements to unlocking value from IoT. With the Microsoft Azure Internet of Things Suite, companies can monitor assets to improve efficiencies, drive operational performance to enable innovation, and use advance data analytics to transform the business with new business models and revenue streams. Small changes can have a big impact to companies' bottom line. When a company take advantage of the Microsoft Cloud Platform, they can use the Azure IoT Suit to help them move faster, do more, save money, and capture the benefits of the Internet of Things for their business.
There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require. With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's Backbone Network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.
Tencent Cloud provides a considerable number of cloud services, such as cloud computing, data processing and cloud operation services to empower your business.
