About Us

   IBM Watson Advertising, formerly The Weather Company's advertising sales division, uses the world's leading artificial intelligence (AI) technology to unlock data and insights and help marketers make better decisions.

   We offer trusted, insight-driven solutions that can be deployed across a brand's entire marketing strategy to help drive results.

We Live in an AI-Powered World

   New customer needs and expectations have forced brands to rethink how they engage. AI has also teased a future full of exciting transformations for marketers such as better campaign analytics, hyper-personalization, and predictive audiences.

   Businesses using AI to unlock data are influencing sales, engaging the customer better, boosting operations, and generating insights – all by more than 10%.*

   But adoption is slow. Challenges include concerns over data safety, lack of a playbook on how to incorporate AI into one’s job, concerns about replacing human capital, and lastly, no singular definition of what AI is.

Enter IBM Watson

   Watson is AI tech that has been designed to solve today’s data challenges and empower smarter business. It does this by understanding, reasoning and learning from all data and facilitating increasingly natural interactions with humans.

   Watson empowers smarter business because:
     * It takes a client-first approach: Clients build and train their own AI so data stays proprietary and secure
     * It has proven AI capabilities: Leading capabilities in language, vision, speech, emotional reasoning are based on decades of research and proven results for clients
     * It is open to the world: Anyone can access the APIs for a fee, and use them to develop innovative solutions
