Adaptive Intelligence Can Help Optimize Decision-Making
"Cognitive computing is a new category of information technology that combines proven technologies with sophisticated analytical algorithms, natural-language- and machine-based learning and massive computer processing power to yield probabilistic responses to user questions. A cognitive system accesses information, both structured and unstructured, within an associated knowledge base to return responses that are not simply data but contextualized information that can inform users’ actions and guide their decisions.
Cognitive systems have useful potential in many industries, and any organization that must process large volumes and various types of data likely will benefit from the ability to quickly generate actionable guidance. They can be used to develop information that helps businesses become more effective and competitive and helps decision-makers develop and reach conclusions more quickly with increased confidence."
