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.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly taking shape. Billions of smart devices, from cars and trucks to Containers and hospital beds, will create and share data. Data permission security becomes a major concern for enterprises. The BlackBerry IoT Platform can provide the clients that control, providing a cloud-based solution that lets clients build and manage IoT applications and devices in a secure, efficient, and scalable way. The BlackBerry IoT Platform provides a modular architecture to rapidly add BlackBerry and third-party services into your IoT applications and, once built, a backbone for these apps and devices to communicate privately.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is already changing the way consumers are able to control their surroundings. From thermostats and lighting to remote access and home automation, many are already managing comfort, running diagnostics, and receiving alerts about their homes and businesses from devices that can interact seamlessly with mobile clients, cloud services and other IoT devices. Marvell’s EZ-Connect platform is helping to rapidly bringing innovative devices to the fast growing market. Built on Marvell’s silicon, coupled with industry standards certifications and leading Kinoma software, it is widely considered the most complete, industry-leading connectivity portfolio, capable of enabling more efficient time-to-market IoT designs with hardware and software solutions.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is already having a massive impact on business. It offers organizations the opportunity to transform how they operate, and gives both new entrants and established players the ability to innovate and disrupt. The Internet of Things refers to machine-to-machine (M2M) technology enabled by secure network connectivity and cloud infrastructure, to reliably transform data into useful information for people, businesses, and institutions. The ecosystem required to build an IoT solution can be complex. While the technologies involved are established, there’s still a lot of work to be done in agreeing and ratifying standards. They are seeing more “off the shelf” solutions and building blocks emerging, but a high degree of customization is common. Selecting the right providers, partners, and technologies is critical to achieving reliability, performance, coverage, and Interoperability.
