Cognit is bringing cognitive computing and evidence-based decision making to the Middle East and North Africa.
Cognit provides Watson cognitive computing technologies to enterprises in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) to solve important economic and societal challenges. The company, headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is a joint venture between Mubadala Development Company and IBM.
IBM’s Watson represents a new era in computing, one where cognitive systems use natural language processing and machine learning to reveal insights from large amounts of unstructured data. Watson is the first open cognitive computing technology platform and it continuously learns from previous interactions, gaining in value and knowledge over time. In addition to being offered through client engagements, Watson is available to the developer community via a collection of cognitive APIs that can be combined to create Watson applications.
Cognit delivers Watson cloud-based technologies to clients across a variety of industries including healthcare, retail, education, banking and finance. The organization is also establishing a broad regional ecosystem of partners, entrepreneurs, start-ups and app developers who will apply Watson in innovative ways throughout the MENA region.
