That’s the vision of IBM president and CEO Ginni Rometty, as outlined during a keynote speech at IBM’s World of Watson conference in October 2016.
Watson, the vendor’s artificial intelligence- fuelled system, is working in fields such as health care, finance, entertainment and retail, connecting businesses more easily with customers, while making sense of big data and helping doctors find treatments for cancer patients.
The Watson system is set to transform how businesses function and how people live their lives.
“Our goal is augmenting intelligence,” Rometty said. “It is man and machine. This is all about extending your expertise. A teacher.
A doctor. A lawyer. It doesn’t matter what you do. We will extend it.”
