Watson Discovery Service is delivered as a suite of APIs that aims to make it easier for companies to load and analyze their data, even if they dont have an advanced degree in data science. With Watson Discovery, you can unlock hidden value in data to find answers, monitor trends and surface patterns with the worlds most advanced cloud-native insight engine.
Watson Discovery starts by ingesting and standardizing your data. Then, it enriches the data with natural language capabilities like sentiment analysis, named entity extraction, and concept tagging. Users can then use a query API to segment the data and search through it.
Many insights can be found in relationships among text-based data, such as news reports, and social media. Because Watson Discovery Service can read into these sources and understand the data at "massive scale," this service can open up new opportunities for developers to make use of that data.
