Cognitive Computing with IBM Watson

By: Rob High, Tanmay Bakshi

Overview of this book

Cognitive computing is rapidly becoming a part of every aspect of our lives through data science, machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI). It allows computing systems to learn and keep on improving as the amount of data in the system increases. This book introduces you to a whole new paradigm of computing – a paradigm that is totally different from the conventional computing of the Information Age. You will learn the concepts of ML, deep learning (DL), neural networks, and AI with the help of IBM Watson APIs. This book will help you build your own applications to understand, and solve problems, and analyze them as per your needs. You will explore various domains of cognitive computing, such as NLP, voice processing, computer vision, emotion analytics, and conversational systems. Equipped with the knowledge of machine learning concepts, how computers do their magic, and the applications of these concepts, you’ll be able to research and apply cognitive computing in your projects.

Other services and features of Watson

While we already covered much of Watson's services in this book, there are a number of additional note-worthy services that we didn't. We'll briefly summarize those here.

C&C is designed to deeply analyze complex business documents that you typically use to govern a business, such as contracts, invoices, and entitlements. It can identify parties, obligations, and the rights that are assigned to each. It can call out contractual clauses such as payment terms, warranties, and liabilities.

In addition to this, the service can be used to compare these elements between two documents—by highlighting the differences between them to assist in quickly understanding what may have changed between two versions of a contract, or how a given contract may differ from a boilerplate contract.

The C&C service can operate on a variety of document formats, including HTML, PDF, TIFF, JPG, and Microsoft Word. It will convert any of these formats...
