The world is drowning in data. We are creating 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day. That is 2.5 followed by 18 zeros!  A university executive resolution, for example, is the culmination of many discussions in meetings, countless emails and many revisions before the final decision. The eventual resolution is one data point, but it’s accompanied by so much unstructured data. Through cognitive computing’s ability to discover patterns, meaning can be derived from unstructured data. These patterns are invaluable for insights and decision-making, but they are not obvious. They can only be revealed by cognitive computing through machine learning algorithms.
