IBM's Watson Health and the American Diabetes Association have outlined a multi-year partnership to analyze clinical and research data to better manage diabetes. The partnership was outlined at the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) annual scientific powwow in New Orleans. The goal is to use data to build cognitive applications for doctors, researchers and patients. Watson Health and the ADA have been working together to analyze 300,000 patient records to model outcomes and the disease as well as manage care. Apple, acquisitions, and adherence: Inside IBM's Watson Health unit IBM Watson-powered app aims to make hospital visits less daunting for young patients IBM's bet on cognitive computing, Watson will take time to pay off IBM acquires Truven Health Analytics for 2.6 billion to bulk up Watson Health According to IBM, Watson's APIs have been used in the field for about two years.
New mobile app from Medtronic, Sugar.IQ, applies AI technology from IBM Watson Health to help people with diabetes make more informed decisions. Self-driving cars may not be here yet, but artificial intelligence is being used today to help patients with diabetes to manage their glucose. IBM announced its advancement in using artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and analytic technologies to address the data-driven obstacles of diabetes, as presented at the American Diabetes Association's (ADA) 78th Scientific Sessions. Through IBM Watson Health's ongoing partnership with Medtronic, the companies announced the commercial availability of Sugar.IQ with Watson, an app that aims to give people insights to help manage their diabetes. They also announced findings from three data presentations at ADA, including real-world data underscoring the value of machine learning and analytic tools in diabetes.
IBM Watson Provides Self-Service AI for Developers By Darryl K. Taft Posted 2016-05-07 Print In what IBM calls "self-service AI," the company enables developers to easily tap into the power of its Watson APIs to build cognitive apps. When IBM initially launched its Watson cognitive computing platform, one of the first questions on a lot folks' minds was, "When can I tap into the power of Watson?" IBM responded by opening up Watson to developers via the Watson Developer Cloud, which offers Watson services and APIs as well as useful documentation and tutorials, starter kits and access to the Watson developer community. IBM started slow and continued to evolve its Watson strategy for developers. The company started with just a few Watson partners and offered just a handful of Watson services.
Over the last decade, the "data revolution" has touched every aspect of our work and personal lives. Today's business challenges have never been more complex, and the critical insights that can address these challenges are often buried in an avalanche of data. In today's marketplace, the business that wins, is the business that "thinks." The viability of a company in the marketplace now depends on its ability to use data and analytics to fuel a thinking business. Companies in industries as diverse as healthcare, retail, banking and manufacturing are already using cognitive technologies to reshape business and do things faster and more efficiently than ever before.
