Alexa, the voice service that powers Echo, provides capabilities, or skills, that enable customers to interact with devices in a more intuitive way using voice. Examples of these skills include the ability to play music, answer general questions, set an alarm or timer and more. Alexa is built in the cloud, so it is always getting smarter. The more customers use Alexa, the more she adapts to speech patterns, vocabulary, and personal preferences. With Alexa, developers can build new voice experiences. Natural user interfaces, like those based on speech, represent the next major disruption in computing. Get in early. Leave understanding human speech to us and focus on your differentiated value-add to customers.

Watson is the first commercially available cognitive computing technology platform and represents a new era in computing. Watson analyses high volumes of data and processes information more like a human than a computer — by understanding natural language, generating hypotheses based on evidence, and learning as it goes. Since its triumph on the US television quiz show Jeopardy! IBM has advanced Watson’s capabilities and made it available via the cloud. Watson now powers new consumer and enterprise services in the healthcare, financial services, retail and education markets. IBM has also opened the Watson platform to developers and entrepreneurs, enabling them to build and market their own powered by Watson applications for a variety of industries. To further advance Watson, IBM has created two dedicated business units: Watson, established for the development of cloud-delivered cognitive computing technologies that represent the commercialisation of “artificial intelligence” across a variety of industries, and secondly Watson Health, dedicated to improving the ability of doctors, researchers, insurers and other related health organisations to surface new insights from data to deliver personalised healthcare. Today, with the help of Watson, organisations are harnessing the power of cognitive computing to transform industries, help professionals do their jobs better, and solve important challenges.

Born of neuroscience and raised without rules, Saffron is always learning from your data – about what actually matters to your business. Inspired by the remarkable way our brain stores and reasons from information, Saffron is used on large, complex data sets where the data is highly varied and often sparse – providing a more accurate and informative alternative to data modeling. If the goal is to use data to solve problems, then we need to move away from exclusive dependence on data models and adopt a more diverse and adaptable approach to decision support and prediction. Welcome to Saffron.
