The Watson supercomputer from IBM is now turning its attention to cars and drivers. The development came in wake of collaboration between IBM and BMW that looks forward to explore influence of cognitive computing over regular commotion. It is being expected that the machine learning capabilities of this Watson machine will play a vital role in helping vehicles find a new way to collect more information about drivers’ requirements, habits, and improve their experience on road, take care of their safety and comfort. There are four hybrid vehicles that are currently being run by IBM’s Bleumix cloud platform that will help enable connectivity with Watson. One of the prime steps in this direction will be to feed car’s manual in the supercomputer, this will help in showcasing the car’s’ ability to answer questions pertaining to weather, traffic, and other such important things.
The Global head of IBM’s Watson IoT business, Harriet Green, “Watson is transforming how people interact with the physical world – helping to create safer, more efficient and personal experiences at home, at work and on the road. With this agreement, our companies will work together to lay the foundations so that drivers can benefit from Watson’s conversational and machine learning capabilities. Our insight shows that while the car will remain a fixture in personal transportation, the driving experience will change more over the next decade than at any other time of the automobile’s existence.”
Our ways of driving are changing as the mobility options are on rise and stay assured the vehicles of tomorrow wouldn’t be as simple as they seem today. It will turn into a complex hub of sensors, cameras, and data that will have brain of its own and will ensure ample of experience for the drivers and riders. The IBM report sats the ability of cars in increasing with every passing day and the day is not far when these will be able to resolve their own issues and problems on their own.
