This workshop helps the participants to understand the concept of Cognitive Computing
and have hands on experience to work on IBM Watson Tools.The goal of cognitive
computing is to simulate human thought processes in a computerized model. Using selflearning
algorithms that use data mining, pattern recognition and natural language
processing and the computer can mimic the way the human brain works.
While computers have been faster at calculations and processing than humans for decades,
they haven't been able to accomplish tasks that humans take for granted as simple, like
understanding natural language, or recognizing unique objects in an image.
These cognitive systems, most notably IBM's Watson, rely on deep learning algorithms and
neural networks to process information by comparing it to a teaching set of data. The more
data the system is exposed to, the more it learns, and the more accurate it becomes over
time, and the neural network is a complex “tree” of decisions that the computer can make to
arrive at an answer.
