Our Cognitive Search approach gives you the freedom to use Microsoft’s AI Platform or Google Cloud’s Machine Learning.
A new wave of Artificial Intelligence technology offers the potential to dramatically transform the way organizations use their information. Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing are developing extremely quickly through multi-billion dollar investments by superpowers like Microsoft and Google. These technologies underpin powerful new capabilities in intelligent search.
How we integrate with Microsoft’s AI Platform
How we integrate with Google Cloud’s Machine Learning
Several analysts have recently come out with new terms for Intelligent Search.
Gartner calls it “Insight Engines”, and emphasizes the use of relevancy methods and proactive or interactive information delivery in context.
Forrester calls it “Cognitive Search and Knowledge Discovery”, highlighting the use of AI technologies such as natural language processing and machine learning.
Don’t let the variety of terminology confuse you…we are all referring to the same thing!
We are continuing our best-of-breed approach as we leverage the best machine learning and cognitive computing from superpowers like Microsoft and Google, as well as open source. A few examples of these capabilities:
- Our Semantic Entity Extraction uses machine learning to identify and relate concepts found inside content in nearly any system or format.
- We automatically recommend relevant content based on behavioral preferences learned via our SmartHub Analytics measurements.
- Our Image Processing automatically recognizes objects found in pictures within your content, using machine learning.
Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing are developing extremely quickly, and we will continue to add exciting new capabilities going forward.
Beware of Hype
Although there is real value in machine learning and cognitive search, there is also a lot of hype. Read CMS wire’s articles on “Intelligent, Cognitive, AI-based Search: Separating Hype from Reality”
