About the IBM Watson IoT Center

IBM's Watson technologies thrive on tremendous volumes of data, and the IoT provides that. Cognitive systems puts all types of data - even data that you may not be aware of - into context with systems that learn at scale, reason with purpose and interact with humans naturally.

In February 2017, IBM officially opened the doors to its Watson IoT headquarters in Munich, Germany, one of the world's most advanced centers for Watson cognitive computing and IoT capabilities. The center will serve as the new global ecosystem for collaborative innovation, special industry "collaboratories" that bring together clients and partners to work together with IBM’s 1,000 Munich-based IoT experts to tap into the latest design thinking and push the boundaries of what is possible with IoT.
