With the advent of plethora of devices connected to the Internet and the gamut of data collected from them, Cognitive systems that can simulate the human thought process, interacts and learns over time have become ubiquitous in the current era. IBM has been a global leader in building and deploying Cognitive Systems across several verticals. In this talk, we focus on the Cognitive capabilities developed by the IBM Research team pertaining to the unstructured text domain. We explain the core concepts in the domain of Natural Language Understanding particularly on Question Quality Improvement and its applications in Watson Health. We also how to extend these capabilities in building conversational systems particularly focused on the IT technical support and services.
