Steve Lohr, The New York Times:
IBM has shown an early working version of Watson Analytics to a handful of customers and industry analysts, letting them try it out, and they are generally impressed. It combines basics of data handling with the Watson technologies of natural-language processing and machine learning. A result, they say, is that a business person, who is not a statistician or data scientist, can type in questions to probe corporate data. Examples: â€œWhat high-value customers am I most likely to close sales with in the next 30 days?â€ and â€œWhich benefits drive employee retention the most?â€
Looking forward to the day Siri and Watson start to date.
