Watson was created to accept questions that are written in the Natural Language form and show the results in AI and algorithm in series of data. IBM Watson is mainly used in AI by IBM Watson programmers, students, data scientists and researchers etc.

    IBM Watson Studio

    There is a tool called the IBM Watson studio, it helps data scientists and researchers to build data models in such a way that it it scales across any cloud. It has a open and flexible cloud structure and provides capabilities that will help businesses for the clarification of enterprises like AI. Watson studio is very powerful and it is open-source, it also has a code-free data analytics tool that can help data scientists and students more. IBM Watson studio is what people use and it is free for students and even anyone who wants to use it.

    IBM Watson Health

    IBM Watson Health is what lots of people are using especially the users of IBM Watson who are into healthcare. IBM Watson health uses AI to check insights that can improve the population's health and healthcare.
