Healthcare and Cognitive Computing Team Up for Big Changes

Data, data, data-it’s everywhere. Everything, including your watch, your grocery store, and even your car, can collect it from you. But what do companies do with all this data they collect–and, more importantly, how can they make the best and most efficient use of it? That’s where cognitive computing comes in. It uses a variety of techniques–such as image and speech recognition and machine-learning algorithms–to sense, predict, and even think.
