MC+A is co-hosting a webinar with IBM on Watson Explorer (WEX). Watson Explorer 11.0.2 is the latest release of the technology that IBM acquired when it acquired Vivisimo. With a Moore’s cycle still at 18 months, much has changed with that technology and it’s been “Blue Washed” to a more integrated platform with other aspects of the IBM Watson product line.
The latest version of WEX provides flexible and power cognitive search and content analytics. I’ve been working with it over the past year and I’m generally impressed at how easy it was for me to become familiar with the product.
Some interesting differences about WEX
- It’s a position based index (versus a Vector based index)
- It’s schema less
- It has a concept of virtual documents which is great for field level security
- It allows for field level updates
Basic Details of the Webinar:
When: Thursday February 16th
Time: 11:00 AM CST
Hope to see you there!
