Getting started with cognitive computing
A definition of cognitive computing
Cognitive computing is an overarching concept that describes multiple approaches to making computers more effective at interpreting human interactions and making sense of large amounts of information. It includes various flavors of artificial intelligence and machine learning, including understanding sources of information that have typically been in the realm of human perception—including speech recognition and image identification and interpretation. Cognitive computing deals with ambiguous information and problem solving and can use multiple approaches to dealing with challenges that have defied structured computation up until now.
