Watson & Co.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are considered by experts to be the future topics of IT. One of the most well-known figureheads of this development is Watson, an IBM software that implements concepts in these areas. What makes Watson and similar applications so extraordinary? Can you make good use of it in your business environment?
What's special about systems like Watson?
An important topic in machine learning and artificial intelligence is the creation of comprehensive systems that independently develop solutions to new problems. That makes a lot easier - you just enter the existing data into the system and get a solution. Such systems can and should implement solutions on their own. However, it is quite controversial, if that is desirable. Apart from philosophical questions, tangible security concerns play a major role.
Complex systems are always error-prone, which is no different with Watson & Co. Therefore, it is questionable whether, for example, you want to leave security-critical areas to a software that independently searches for solutions and may develop an unwanted momentum.
What can machine learning and AI systems do today?
Visions, as they are drawn by some science fiction films, are currently totally inappropriate. Even systems like Watson, which have been in development for years, are still in their infancy. Of course, they can already do amazing things today and can be meaningfully integrated into economic processes. But there is still a long way to go before systems can reach their full potential.
