Cognitive computing connects IoT

Cognitive computing has been a rage in the recent years and Internet of Things have gained its foothold across various domains. However, the two great inventions of modern IT infrastructure share more than simple relations of dominance as a certain kind of symbiosis is detected by various quarters. Since cognitive computing offers huge AI capabilities, the monstrous network of IoT fits well into the cause. The more data arrives at computing, the better it becomes and the mightier its formulations will be. In fact, the cognitive platforms can gather data from such wide sources due to IoT that it will be a natural requirement for such computing to flourish.

Analytics becomes important

Since cognitive computing, for obvious reasons, concern analytical data, it will surely shape the way IoT has investment in the field of analytics. Currently, IoT finds its maximum usage in supply chains and route optimizations, but the smart devices will soon become the most important ‘things’ for IoT. In fact, with the increase of wearable devices and dominance of sensors in your daily life, you will soon become surrounded by IoT and cognitive computing will work on this data to make your lives better, easier and more predictable than ever before. The healthcare department’s concern with IoT goes to show that it is going to have a deep impact in the field of analytics.

Iterating with intelligence

Iteration is mark of quality of any predictive analytics. Personalization of results and refinement of deliverables is possible only when the iterations are intelligent and the redundancy is worked around cognitively. So, past results must be integrated within the present data with thoughtful inclusion and then, further results can be channelled into additional mechanisms for prediction.

The more nested the iterations and algorithms are, the more the chances are of AI’s intervention and hence, the more it becomes necessary to create intelligent knowledge so that AI can work upon it in a better manner. So, accurate, specific and intelligent iterations are hallmark of cognitive computing when enveloped by IoT.

Machine and Human- a story of symbiosis

IoT has a lot of human intervention in its data production as well as procurement. The decisions that come out of cognitive computing are intervened by humans, while the data is gathered automatically. So, there is a constant contact between the two most powerful forces on earth, each bettering others’ capabilities. Since machine learning, neural networks and deep learning look towards automating the modelling of data, they can have immediate impact on data management and make the process much faster and cognitive computing will spurt decisions with remarkably high accuracy within a short time span. Such automation are hence foundational in taking strategic decisions in the blink of an eye.
