It’s been more than 60 years since the term ‘Artificial Intelligence’ or AI was coined. Since then it has provided great fodder to Hollywood movies like Ex Machina, The Terminator, I Robot, and many more, some portraying these self-learning machines as a scourge and others a savior. What powers AI is Cognitive Computing. In this blog, Rajeev Dadia talks about how Cognitive Computing has emerged as a disruptive technology fueling digital transformation.

The quantum of data being generated every second is unfathomable to the human mind. Every aspect of our life is being digitized with more and more attributes and frequency. Any consumer or buyer of goods, services and solutions is leaving behind a trail of data that depicts patterns and has insightful information. Deciphering intelligence from this data requires machines armed with specific techniques and algorithms.

What is powering these machines – Yes, AI.
