On June 21, 2023, IBM will host watsonx Day, a virtual event that brings together experts, end-users, and ecosystem partners to share insights and technical experience with next-generation AI. The event will explore watsonx, IBM's platform for scaling and accelerating the impact of AI with trusted data.

As we discussed on our community call with Tarun Chopra watsonx platform is built on three pillars:,, and watsonx.governance. is a suite of AI services that can be used to train, tune, and deploy AI across your business. scales AI workloads for all your data, while watsonx.governance enables responsible, transparent AI workflows.

During the event, speakers from IBM and its partners will share use cases for watsonx. For example, IBM's financial services industry unit will show how watsonx is used to help financial institutions detect fraud and prevent cyberattacks. IBM's healthcare industry unit will show how watsonx is used to help healthcare providers diagnose diseases and improve patient care.

In addition to showcasing watsonx use cases, the event will also feature presentations on the latest trends in AI. Speakers will discuss topics such as the rise of large language models, the importance of data privacy and security, and the need for responsible AI development.
