Terms like machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) have become commonplace. However, there is a new term trend being thrown around – cognitive computing. DATAVERSITY brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “How is Cognitive Computing Set to Reshape What We Call Computing?

AI is an umbrella term for the technologies that provide augmented intelligence with the help of machines so that it could surpass humans in terms of agility and accuracy.

Cognitive technology or cognitive computing is considered a sub-field of AI, but one of the more difficult ones to define. AI claims that machines have better decision-making abilities than humans. Cognitive computing helps humans take better decisions with the help of machines.

The apps used in this particular technology have self-learning algorithms and language tools. They rely on data mining, pattern recognition, and natural language processing to collect information to power themselves. This technology is already causing an impact on different businesses and daily activities.
