Knowledge - overview<! -- ========================== PAGE CONTENT ========================== ->
Knowledge is at the core of every cognitive system. IBM Research has a long history of innovations in information and knowledge management. IBM scientists have made major contributions to foundations of data management systems and continue to lead through innovative and disruptive knowledge-driven solutions to the world’s most difficult problems. An exemplary achievement of our researchers is the design and implementation of the knowledge-based question answering system that defeated the top champions in the Jeopardy! TV show.
Our mission is to provide our company and our clients with state-of-the-art technologies to collect, curate, and consume knowledge. Our researchers are leading various key projects that power Watson technologies and provide the foundations for cognitive systems of the future. Browse through our project pages for more information.
