Big Data opens up opportunities. FT has an interesting article on Arria, and how its uses artificial intelligence software developed at the University of Aberdeen to sift through thousands of data points to produce written reports in English. Oil and Gas case study provides some insight to the technology – very cool.
FT also provides a view on IBM opening up Watson, its technology crown jewels.
