IBM Embeds Watson AI Within Salesforce
IBM and Salesforce.com announced a strategic partnership to connect their respective artificial intelligence products, Watson and Einstein. What’s intriguing is the press release describes the deal as bringing Watson’s “structured and unstructured data” to the party, not any grand cognitive capabilities. They specifically mention exposing data from IBM’s Weather.com business within Salesforce. More evidence that AI is approaching a commodity but data is the new crown jewel.
