IBM has announced the launch of Watson for businesses to tackle complex problem-solving.
The company’s Watson platform will be integrated into IBM’s existing systems for AI, as well as new products like the Watson Proving Ground.
The Watson for Business platform will allow customers to take advantage of IBM’s extensive AI capabilities and provide a richer set of insights, said IBM in a press release.
IBM has been working with Microsoft to develop a similar platform for the PC.
Watson is designed to make it easier for businesses and individuals to understand and improve their AI capabilities.
It’s an important time for IBM, as it enters into a new era of AI-driven productivity, said Jim Sullivan, senior vice president of AI at IBM Watson.
This will mean a new set of challenges for business, including how to support the growing number of machines, said Sullivan.
For the most part, Watson is a powerful machine learning platform, he said.
But this is not a technology that is going away, Sullivan said.
We’re excited about the potential of Watson in business, and we are working with our partners to deliver a powerful AI solution for our customers.
The release also mentioned the IBM Watson platform is “coming soon” and the company is “looking forward to seeing Watson at your doorstep.”
Watson will be available for consumers in 2019.
The first Watson device was released in 2014.
The device was designed for business users who want to tackle complicated problem-solving and use the device to quickly solve complex problems.
But its strengths were its ability to learn about human problems and its ability do a variety of tasks, like finding common problems and helping customers find solutions, Sullivan explained.
The new Watson for business platform will also allow customers access to Watson Proven Ground, a suite of AI tools designed for AI experts.
The Proving Grounds is designed for experts to test Watson’s capabilities.
It’s also used to test the reliability of Watson on different problems.
The Watson Prover is designed specifically for professionals to test whether Watson can predict the future and understand what people want, Sullivan added.
The IBM Watson for enterprise platform will launch in 2019 and is the first time the company has introduced Watson for machines.
The service will be based on the Watson platform, which will be powered by a custom platform, said Alex Segal, senior director of product management at IBM.
This includes the new Watson Probing Grounds, which allows IBM to build AI systems in a new way.
Segal also mentioned Watson’s support for more than 1,000 different AI and machine learning technologies, including machine learning from Google and Microsoft, and a suite called TensorFlow.
The launch of the Watson for Enterprise platform comes after IBM invested heavily in machine learning for businesses in the past several years.
In 2017, IBM hired Mark Russinovich to lead the company’s efforts to support machine learning across its cloud.
