IBM wants to bring artificial intelligence to every workplace. To achieve this, it announces today a large AI toolkit based on Watson. In this case, it is specifically aimed at companies in nine different industries.

As data flows continue to grow, people are increasingly overwhelmed by the amount of information they have to deal with every day, David Kenny, senior vice president of IBM Cognitive Solutions, began. But fortunately the information explosion coincides with another important technology development: artificial intelligence.

Wide application

According to Kenny, artificial intelligence is pre-eminently the tool that should be used by professionals to use the data they have at their disposal as much as possible. Tailoring Artificial Intelligence to specific industries and professions is a critical way to enable everyone to reach a new potential in their daily work.

This is why the new toolkit, powered by Watson, the artificial intelligence that IBM is developing, will be introduced. The toolset comes to nine different industries. In marketing, for example, Watson can increase productivity and when it comes to agriculture, Watson has to help analyze weather data and satellite images. And when it comes to customer service, Watson would help answer questions.

However, IBM sees a broader application ahead of it when it comes to Watson. For example, IBM IoT Building Insights should process the exabytes of data generated within commercial buildings. In this way, managers can make the energy consumption of their buildings more efficient. Other sectors targeted are the advertising market, human resources, manufacturing, industrial machinery, the supply chain and AI for vehicles.
