Knowledge - overview


Knowledge is at the core of every cognitive system. IBM Research has a long history of innovations in information and knowledge management. IBM scientists have made major contributions to foundations of data management systems and continue to lead through innovative and disruptive knowledge-driven solutions to the world’s most difficult problems. An exemplary achievement of our researchers is the design and implementation of the knowledge-based question answering system that defeated the top champions in the Jeopardy! TV show.

Our mission is to provide our company and our clients with state-of-the-art technologies to collect, curate, and consume knowledge. Our researchers are leading various key projects that power Watson technologies and provide the foundations for cognitive systems of the future.
