Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed in IBM's DeepQA project by a research team led by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings. Watson received the first place prize of $1 million. Watson had access to 200 million pages of structured and unstructured content consuming four terabytes of disk storage including the full text of Wikipedia, but was not connected to the Internet during the game. For each clue, Watson's three most probable responses were displayed on the television screen. Watson consistently outperformed its human opponents on the game's signaling device, but had trouble in a few categories, notably those having short clues containing only a few words. In February 2013, IBM announced that Watson software system's first commercial application would be for utilization management decisions in lung cancer treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in conjunction with health insurance company WellPoint. IBM Watson's former business chief Manoj Saxena says that 90% of nurses in the field who use Watson now follow its guidance.

Watson has come a long way since it won on the American quiz show Jeopardy! in 2011. Back then, it did one thing: natural language Q&A, powered by five technologies. Today, Q&A is just one of more than 30 Watson capabilities—all of which have been turned into digital services, or Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), delivered via the cloud. This means that we can literally build cognition into everything digital. With Watson, every digital application, product and process can understand, reason and learn. You can see why cognitive is becoming the heart of our solutions businesses. What started as one Watson unit is now a growing family: the core Watson team, which continues to build new capabilities and nurture its expanding ecosystem; and individual Watson businesses, aimed at particular industries or professional domains, such as IBM Watson Health and IBM Watson Internet of Things. Each business brings together Watson capabilities with industry expertise, vast data sets and an ecosystem of partners and clients, and each is powered by the IBM Cloud.
TransUnion Global Fraud & Identity Solutions
We were founded in 2004 with the belief that the internet should be a safe place for people to do business. This thought has inspired us, guided us and pushed us forward, attracting some very exceptional clients, and an exceptional service team. We've grown in other areas as well; from a startup to an industry leader to joining with TransUnion. Still, we're hungry to be the very best. We approach our work every day with a feeling of ownership, boldness, excellence and a belief that anything's possible. Especially a safer internet.
Building safe and secure systems is the hallmark of Wind River. For the past 30 years they have been ensuring that safety-critical systems, for everything from industrial plants and electrical substations to jet airliners and commuter trains, absolutely work without fail. They are now harnessing our decades of field experience to deploy advanced technologies such as software agents and microkernels to more fully integrate our ultra-reliable operating systems into the Internet of Things (IoT). The Internet of Things is officially here. And with it are not only new challenges, but also untapped value and immense opportunity estimated at $19 trillion. Realize IoT’s huge potential with Wind River Helix, a comprehensive portfolio of software solutions for harnessing intelligence to drive innovation and business transformation. With their offering, developers and device manufacturers can not only create the safe, secure, and reliable intelligent systems that make up IoT, but also move the data generated by these systems–from the secure and managed devices at the edge, through the gateway, across the critical network infrastructure, and up into the cloud. Wind River Helix is everything a business needs to both survive and thrive in this exciting new era of data.
Overview & Value Proposition:
L&T Technology Services delivers IoT applications across the lifecycle using home grown and third party frameworks, platforms and accelerators. We engage with our customers to contribute in their IoT and M2M strategies and roadmap; develop, deploy and commission business ready M2M applications; integrate these applications to enterprise or cloud; implement custom or commercially available IoT/M2M platforms; and enable sensing capabilities on their custom or off the shelf hardware.
We aim to strengthen our position in digital engineering through investments in IoT, M2M and Smart Manufacturing
technologies or through acquisitions in product software, Embedded Software
We focus on building a portfolio of solutions-oriented engineering services that can be applied across verticals. As part of this strategy, we closely follow the technology trends in the ER&D industry and have focused on key technology areas that we believe will impact the various verticals in which we operate. These key technology areas include digital engineering, mobile internet, IoT (IIoT, mBIoT), automation of knowledge, advanced robotics, autonomous and near-autonomous vehicles, energy efficiency and imaging and video. We intend to focus on solutions in these areas and build cross-domain solutions that can be applied to the businesses of our existing and prospective customers across verticals that could help drive non-linear revenue growth for the company. In order to execute this strategy, we are also building and strengthening our alliances with technology companies. We aim to develop industry-specific use cases for such solutions and then customise these solutions as per the specific requirements of our customers.
We have developed mature IoT solutions such as UbiqWeise™ and iBEMS™ in emerging technology areas to support our customers. For example, one of our construction industry customers, who has various types of construction equipment and machinery spread across global project sites, collects operational data on a near real-time basis, which is then sent to a cloud platform. The data is then processed using applied analytics on our UbiqWeise™ platform to provide insights on information such as operational efficiency and Preventive Maintenance
schedules. For another customer, we provide smart services solutions in process improvement, waste reduction and improvement in yields. Our solutions are aimed at addressing specific problems by introducing advanced sensors and analytics technologies to detect anomalies at an early stage of production. As a result, our solutions enable reduction of the rejection rates of the products.
We have entered into alliances with several IoT players. For example, we established a joint IoT lab with a global network solutions provider to explore opportunities in transportation, manufacturing and smart cities. We have set up a Smart Manufacturing
lab has been set up to address difficulties faced by process and discrete manufacturing plants, as well as to develop and integrate intelligent automation solutions for Smart Manufacturing
. These manufacturing areas include process optimization, smart utilities, connectivity and mobility, Tracking
quality checks, touchless operations, OEM integration, and smart machine controls.
There is the potential for 50 billion connected devices by 2020. Google Cloud Platform gives you the tools to scale connections, gather and make sense of data, and provide the reliable customer experiences that hardware devices require.
With the potential for so many devices, companies need a network infrastructure that can sustain potentially millions of concurrent connections across a global user base. Google's Backbone Network
has thousands of miles of fiber optic cables, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance.
Many small devices are still capable of producing very large volumes of data. It is only through the insight of sufficiently powerful data analysis tools that these trickles of device data are turned into floods of valuable information. Google Cloud Platform is building a state-of-the-art suite of big data tools.
