Effective data and information management is the foundation for competitive advantage for enterprises in any industry. Today’s information-infused world has added another essential component for differentiation: cognitive technology.
Where speed and scale were once technology’s most important requirements, today’s challenges are no longer simply a question of computing power. The opportunities presented by “making sense” of data and information come with new requirements for comprehension, context and connection. Therefore, today’s technologies must be fast, powerful and intelligent.
Cogito: Combining the Advantages of Semantic Technology with Machine Learning
The ability to think on a deep level distinguishes humans from most other species. Inspired by this concept, Cogito, Latin for “I think”, is a software that bases its cognitive capabilities on artificial intelligence algorithms that mimic the human ability to think at the speed of current technologies. Cogito is cognitive technology that:
- is based on a representation of knowledge, the Cogito Knowledge Graph, that is both deep and wide, and in a format compatible with current technologies. Cogito has the ability to read, comprehend and learn, up front, and out of the box.
- understands the meanings of words the way that people do. Thanks to semantic analysis, including word disambiguation, Cogito is cognitive technology that identifies the correct meaning of words and expressions in context, and understands the relationships between different concepts. Cogito is software that reads, a core component of its learning.
- emulates some processes that humans use to comprehend. Through comprehension, Cogito makes the knowledge discovered in text actionable.
- becomes more intelligent by learning from human experts and from written communications to acquire new knowledge, as well as slang, puns, jargon and other nuances of a language. Cogito is software that learns from human experience.
