HA NOI (Biz Hub) IBM Viet Nam officially introduced the cognitive computing technology to Vietnamese organisations and enterprises at its 2016 IBM Business Connect conference in Ha Noi on March 18.

Cognitive system is a technology category that uses natural language processing and machine learning to enable people and machines to interact more naturally, thus extending and amplifying human expertise and cognition.

These systems learn and interact with each other to provide expert assistance to scientists, engineers, lawyers and other professionals.

IBM's cognitive computing system defeated two former champions on the television quiz show, "Jeopardy," in 2011.

Since then, IBM technology has been widely used in many sectors, such as health, retail, banking, sports and energy in many countries.

Referring to the kind of investment the technology needs, Robert Morris, vice president of Global Laboratories, IBM Research, said it does not require big computers or massive floor area but only networks that are widely connected.

IBM's cognitive technology based businesses were growing 20 per cent  annually, according to the vice president.   VNS
