If you are a Marvel fan, you are likely familiar with Iron man a.k.a Tony Stark's J.A.R.V.I.S to gather all the information and helping him with all diagnostic and operation works. Yes, IBM Watson is real world J.A.R.V.I.S.
After reading all these things, you might not believe that it is possible or it's just a vague. But you'll be shocked to know that IBM Watson defeat the human counterpart not by its impressive speed, but also improving confidence score after every answer and then the time comes when Watson had the right answer on the board, with a high confidence score, so it rings the buzzer and wins.
Welcome to the world of cognitive world. The day is not so far when the terminator movie we'll watch altogether in the real world.
Now you might have the curiosity to know about cognitive computing? How it works ? And many more such interesting questions.
In this course, you will not learn about cognitive computing with IBM Watson but also use IBM Watson to create your own cognitive service just like JARVIS
