IBM continues to expand Watson’s abilities, and delivers those capabilities as services to its ecosystem via the Watson Developer Cloud. This enables partners to bring their own creativity and aspirations as they build their individual cognitive businesses. This week, the company launched IBM Cognitive Business Solutions, a new services unit that taps into the company's success with Watson and analytics and draws on the expertise of more than 2,000 consulting professionals spanning machine learning, advanced analytics, data science and development. This eWEEK slide show takes a look at the growth of the Watson developer platform—including Watson Developer Cloud; Watson language, speech and data services; and IBM Cognitive Business Solutions.

  • Think the trucking industry isn't innovative? Think again. Today's buses, cement mixers, ambulances and more are hitting the highways, equipped with telematics systems and electronic control modules that regulate the vehicles' engine and other components. Mobile connectivity delivers a wealth of data from these systems, in real time, both to truck drivers and to the fleet managers who oversee vehicles' day-to-day operations. Using advanced analytics capabilities, truck fleets can gain insights from this data that can benefit their business operations in many ways, ranging from increased on-time delivery to improved fuel economy and beyond. Thanks to growing big data infrastructure and the increased reporting frequency of telematics devices, fleets will be able to capture an increasing wealth of data and generate an exponentially greater volume of insights, which will lead to safer, more efficient and productive driving. In an industry where the ability to make money can directly relate to the ability to stay on the road and avoid downtime, it's becoming increasingly imperative for trucking fleets to take advantage of advanced diagnostics systems and the mobile capabilities that report on vehicles' status. According to Andy Minteer, director of Analytics—Internet of Things at International Trucks, these technologies are empowering closer working relationships among manufacturers, dealers, technology suppliers and truck fleets and improving vehicle performance in multiple ways.
