IBM THINK, ORLANDO, Fla. – As generative AI such as ChatGPT has its day in the sun, IBM’s Watson has reemerged from the shadows with the new watsonx platform, announced at IBM’s Think conference this week.

Watson’s initial launch about 13 years ago wowed the masses by processing and learning human language and even winning Jeopardy. But, at the time, Watson came at a steep price point that made it challenging for businesses to use, Reuters reported.

As generative AI takes off, IBM plans to provide its new watsonx as a way for enterprises to scale up their use of AI foundation models and generative AI more easily. IBM said wastonx will also support the deployment of code, AIOps, digital labor, security and sustainability.

“This is a groundbreaking platform of data and AI that will be inclusive of machine learning, deep learning … and allow you all to take advantage of what generative AI can do for your businesses,” said IBM CEO Arvind Krishna.
