IBM is hooking up with partners to give Watson more work. Watson is working with AT&T for Internet of Things analytics, and with Twitter to fight online bullying.
With AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), IBM Corp. (NYSE: IBM) is building a new IoT analytics solution, combining AT&T IoT connectivity and IBM Cloud to improve enterprise ability to quickly analyze industrial IoT data and improve business operations. My colleague Kelsey Kusterer Ziser has the lowdown: AT&T & IBM Partner for New IoT Analytics Tech.
Additionally, Twitter Inc. is using Watson to identify online abuse, according to Geof Wheelwright on GeekWire. The social media platform said in a blog post this month that it's identifying abusive behavior before it's been reported.
"We're starting just now to partner with the Watson team. Watson is really good at understanding nuances in language and intention," Chris Moody, Twitter vice president of data strategy, said at IBM's InterConnect conference this week. "What we want to do is be able to identify abuse patterns early and stop this behavior before it starts."
— Mitch Wagner Editor, Enterprise Cloud News
Executive Editor, Light Reading
San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.
He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.
Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.
Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
