New York University has established a collaborative research initiative with IBM and three other universities to advance the development and deployment of cognitive computing systems.
These systems, akin to IBM’s Watson, can learn, reason, and help human experts make complex decisions involving extraordinary volumes of fast-moving data.

“IBM has demonstrated with Watson that cognitive computing is real and delivering value today,” said Zachary Lemnios, vice president of strategy for IBM Research. “It is already starting to transform the ways clients navigate big data and is creating new insights in healthcare, how research can be conducted, and how companies can support their customers. But much additional research is needed to identify the systems, architectures, and process technologies to support a new computing model that enables systems and people to work together across any domain of expertise.”
