Watch HSJ’s webinar, in association with IBM, on exploring the potential of cognitive computing and how it might be realised.

It has been argued that cognitive computing systems have the potential to transform healthcare.

Such systems learn and interact naturally with people, extending what humans or machines could do on their own. They can help human experts penetrate the complexity of big data. In healthcare, the result could be greater efficiency and better outcomes.

The webinar looked at IBM Watson, an existing cognitive computing system. Speakers discussed how Watson is already being used, and look at how it could be valuable in a European context.
