IBM to Offer Watson Developers Cloud, An Online Marketplace for Programmers

IBM is to rent out its supercomputer Watson as a cloud application tool. This mega-computer won the game Jeopardy against several very smart human beings. Access to the cloud development platform will be made available. Actually, IBM Watson Developers Cloud will work as an online marketplace with all resources for development. Programmers will be able to use all cloud-based resources for developing apps. There is a lot that can be done via the cooperation of creative people, firms and business enterprises that truly know how to innovate. IBM Watson Developers Cloud will also offer a big content store in which data will be available from third-party providers. And the developers can also get help from IBM, on-contract professionals, and the Armonk. 

The supercomputer Watson is the ultimate resource for solving problems. It can answer many questions after taking in a massive input of data. All sorts of Application Developers are welcome to submit their requests to use Watson. The amount of money that will be generated by sales has not been figured out yet. 

In an interview, Stephen Gold, vice president of Watson Solutions, said, “There is so much more that can be accomplished by drawing on the creativity of individuals, organizations, entrepreneurs, startups and established businesses that truly innovate every day on their own. Watson can be this ultimate assistant to help individuals get their questions answered and their problems solved,” according to Bloomberg.

After more than half a decade of losses for IBM, the Watson initiative might just boost its image. IBM has already made more than $1 billion from this product. The fact that it defeated human beings is proof of its efficiency as a super machine with super-intelligence alright.  

The evolution and maturation of this technology is taking place side by side. And it has taken the long and dusty road to growth since its inception. It has 16 and 32 cores with 256GB of RAM. It is a feature of artificial intelligence that it has come so close to human thinking that the two are virtually indistinguishable. And so the IBM Watson has taken its rightful place in the scheme of things.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
