In February of this year, IBM announced it would take core Watson machine learning technology to mainframe clients. Now, they are going all-in by opening another machine learning hub in Böblingen, Germany. Silicon Angle brought this information to our attention in their article, “IBM claims high demand for machine learning hubs.”

IBM’s Watson was a good example of the evolution of artificial intelligence and caused a greater demand for AI that touches the consumer in a more personal way.

The new hub will be the first in Europe and it joins four other machine learning centers previously opened by the company. IBM has previously opened machine learning centers in California, India, Canada and China. The centers provide customers with the opportunity to bring their problems and interact with IBM’s data scientists and machine learning engineers, and are designed to help IBM increase availability in the face of significant demand.
