IBM grows Watson partnership channel

From apps to content to cognitive players sign up.

By CBR Staff Writer

IBM expanded its Watson partner channel by 270 commercial partners including a content deal with Associated Press.

The partners who provide in-market apps, partner-led client engagements and cognitive apps and services include Talkspace, Go Moment, Decibel and Epic; client engagements with Line Hotel, Centura Health, and Aberdeen Veterinary Clinic.

They include content partnerships with Associated Press and others to expand Watson’s knowledge base and AlchemyData service to aggregate, analyse and organise historical news and editorial data.

IBM expanded the Watson Content Marketplace to bring together different third-party data ranging from general knowledge to industry-specific content.

Mike Rhodin, IBM Watson SVP said: "We continue to invest in both external and internal innovation to further this momentum, whether that’s through acquisitions like AlchemyAPI, direct investments through our seed fund, or new breakthroughs by IBM Research."

Fourteen US and Canadian cancer institutes have recently collaborated with IBM to use its Watson supercomputer to speed up DNA analysis for personalised treatment.
