Cognitive Computing technology enables companies to harness unstructured data and keep ahead of the competition. The changing technology landscape has increased the amount of unstructured data that companies are dealing with. 90% of all data was created in the past two years and 80% of that data is unstructured data. In order to deal with this data deluge, companies must be creative in how they decide to gain value from this surplus of data. One way to analyze this data is to adopt entirely new approaches: deep learning, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
Deep Learning consists of algorithms that permit software to train itself— by exposing multilayered neural networks to vast amounts of data. Speech and image recognition are some of the more frequent methods. This approach thrives when other traditional techniques to problem solving fail: when you want to derive insightful or complex relationships from vast data, when custom programming is impossible, or on visual or auditory data. Imagine being able to easily unlock hidden potential and patterns in data organically — without you having to know the patterns, networks, or be an algorithmic expert. IBM is making deep learning easier specifically with an enterprise software distribution of the most popular open-frameworks, in IBM PowerAI.
IBM PowerAI is the enterprise software distribution of leading open-source deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, caffe, Theano, and torch. IBM PowerAI on IBM PowerSystems offers many benefits including enterprise ready software distribution, performance for faster training times, and tools for ease of development. IBM has made it very easy and simple to get started fast—PowerAI includes all the necessary dependencies and removes the time, effort, and difficulty associated with getting a deep learning environment operational and performing optimally. Clear Technologies is on the forefront of PowerAI development and capabilities. We are able to harness the untapped power of that unstructured data and provide value and unknown insight to your business!
