Overview of the global cognitive systems market

The global cognitive systems market will grow profoundly at a CAGR of almost 56% by 2020. Cognitive computing is the simulation of human thought processes in a computerized model. Many organizations incorporate cognitive applications with self-learning IT systems to help in communicating with people and other computer systems in real time. This system processes large quantities of data from diverse sources and help in remembering previous interactions and drawing conclusions. With the aid of neural networks, these systems mimic the way a human brain works. IBM Watson, for example, can read millions of text documents in seconds. The system follows the process of understanding, learning, and evaluating human thought processes.

An important trend spurring the growth prospects for this market is the growing demand for predictive analytics. Predictive modeling techniques can be customized for individual customers or a group and helps to improve the overall cost effectiveness of the production process. Big data analytics help organizations to optimize their business decisions and introduce new business models and products. This technique can also be used to reduce cost, deliver better services, and boost revenues. Consequently, these technologies are expected to give rise to new innovative ways of carrying out business functions and operations during the forecast period.
