How Cognitive Computing Will Make
Sense of our Complex World

Today's computers know how to do one thing: whatever humans program them to do. In the near future, cognitive computers will be able to interact with humans and learn from those interactions while also using data analysis to provide recommendations based on millions of pages of evidence. With the ability to absorb more information than humanly possible, cognitive computers will cull insights to help us learn how the world really works.
