Crowder goes on, "Application developers across multiple industries recognize the value of leveraging cognitive capabilities to add insight to their digital interaction with their customers. Cognitive systems are now helping doctors, for example, make more informed treatment decisions by analyzing medical journals and medical images, and in the process revolutionizing healthcare. Our computers are becoming, as Thomas Watson, Jr. once envisioned, the most potent tool'for extending the powers of the human beings who use them.' Cognitive systems are defined by a few characteristics: They understand the world rather than automate it; they advise and provide evidence rather than output a binary answer; and they learn and improve rather than remain static. To achieve their goal of better understanding the world, cognitive systems glean insights from vast amounts of unstructured text, voice, and image data."
