IBM captured our imaginations when it unveiled Watson, the artificial intelligence computer capable of playing-and winning- the "Jeopardy" game show. Since then, Big Blue has been introducing Watson’s analytics and learning capabilities across various industries, including health care and information security.
Cognitive security technology such as Watson for Cybersecurity can change how information security professionals defend against attacks by helping them digest vast amounts of data. IBM Security is currently in the middle of a year-long research project working with eight universities to help train Watson to tackle cybercrime.
