IBM Watson is a revolutionary invention which has helped the implementation of Artificial intelligence. It has created a medium for communication between the machines and humans. Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions asked in natural language built by IBM. Watson uses IBM's DeepQA Software and the Apache UIMA(Unstructured Information Management Architecture) framework.
IBM built Watson to apply advanced natural language processing, information retrieval, knowledge representation, automated reasoning, and machine learning technologies to the field of open domain question answering. According to IBM, "more than 100 different techniques are used to analyse natural language, identify sources, find and generate hypotheses, find and score evidence, and merge and rank hypotheses".
AMT has been using Watson in many of our projects for the past two years. We have developed for many of our customers across the globe.
