Today we live on a planet where information is king. In the next five years, data growth is set to increase by 800 percent and even now, 90 percent of all of the data that exists in the world was created in the last two years. As our planet delves further into the digital era, information will continue to grow as rapidly as before. That’s where IBM Watson comes in.
