Ryerson University Adds IBM’s Watson to Big Data Initiatives

Ryerson University has become the eleventh university invited by IBM to be part of the Watson Ecosystem, and will use the innovative cloud-based cognitive computing technology to support big data initiatives. Students of The Chang School’s Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics program used Watson in the Winter 2015 term to create a mobile or web application in which visitors/immigrants could ask Watson questions about life in Canada (on topics ranging from real estate and visa information to food sources). Dr. Syed Shariyar Murtaza, instructor for Introduction to Big Data Analytics (CKME 130), says, “Watson“s impact will be on society. If somebody has this application and wants to know how many calories are in a product, or if you want to find out where the nearest food bank is, you can search a Watson app like on a cell phone.”

Visit Ryerson Today for more details about how Watson will support Ryerson’s various big data initiatives.
