We also know that Watson will charge viewing news feeds on social networks, where he will learn about the most important trends. Based on the analysis of the most popular topics of conversation he learns to draw conclusions about the upcoming events. Note that the supercomputer "reads" the materials in different languages ​​and is able to compare the views of the citizens of the several states, which discusses the same problem.

Almost like a man

Creators Watson said that its main feature is the ability to find solutions to the so-called "gray zone". He was not afraid of a situation in which there is no single answer to a given question. Thus, the "Watson" largely assimilated person. Until now it was thought that only humans can build logic chain in ambiguous situations.

Recall that Watson supercomputer developed by IBM, under a separate division Watson Group. The American giant has invested in this area has about $ 1 billion in the hope that by 2024 the system will bring in $ 10 billion in revenue a year.

Prospects in the cloud

Analysts explain why the market believes in the success of such systems. So, leading the famous transmission Mad Money on CNBC TV channel Jim Kramer said that Watson - is a "metaphor". In fact, a key focus for IBM business development become cloud services. Remote data processing is gaining popularity, while traditional solutions, such as bulk purchase of servers for the needs of each company, interesting not for everyone.

Kramer believes that "Watson", which was created precisely as a cloud system, will be only one part of the cloud business to IBM, which will continuously evolve. However, the supercomputer itself is not able to provide companies with prosperity, and it will have a lot of manpower and resources to invest in the continued work in this area.

Earlier it was reported that this year, IBM will spend $ 4 billion on the development of cloud, mobile and social technologies as well as technologies in the sector of the economy and security.

In connection with the planned investments IBM CEO Virginia Rometta published a new target for total revenues for these segments - $ 40 billion by 2018, or more than 40% of the expected revenue of the company.

For comparison: in 2014 the total revenue from these transactions amounted to $ 25 billion, or 27% of total revenue IBM.

Weak results

At the same time the company needs to take action in response to the weakening of the other lines of business. IBM's total revenue from continuing operations in 2014 decreased by 6% to $ 92.8 billion, and the company does not expect it to increase in 2015

In 2014, IBM sold the Chinese Lenovo Group Ltd. Unit for the production servers, as well as get rid of unprofitable business for the production of semiconductors, the company transferred its Globalfoundries Inc. Under the deal, IBM will pay Globalfoundries $ 1,5 billion over 3 years.

The share of computer equipment now accounts for only 10% of total revenue IBM, said Rometta.
