When you want to take artificial intelligence out of the realm of imagination and poetry, and bring it squarely into practical reality, you need computational tools. The tools need to help your cognitive application developers write the leanest models possible. Developers need frameworks, languages and libraries for building and tuning neural networks and other cognitive constructs for most efficient parallel processing of individual data inputs and the outputs of the nodes within a vast artificial neural network. You can acquire these tools from various sources, such as IBM Watson Developer Cloud. And there are as many approaches for building computational applications that learn from data and automate cognitive processes as there are for building traditional application logic.

All the data in the world isn't helpful unless you put it to use. Employees spend countless hours just pulling data together and making sense of it. We set out to close the data divide between those that are able to put data to work, and those that aren’t. Our cloud-born data services provide data professionals and application developers the unique ability to turn data into readily available fuel for their organizations—all anyone else has to do is choose how to apply it.
