John MacLeod


Watson & IoT Specialist

John is currently IBM's specialist in the Internet of Things (IoT) both at a business and technical level. With skills in electronics, database management, requirements management and software engineering processes my current focus on the IoT is a natural progression. The opportunity presented by the IoT is only limited by our imagination and ability to communicate it to our clients.

IBM's new Watson Internet of Things (IoT) is a cognitive system that learns from, and infuses intelligence into the physical world. The Internet of Things refers to the growing range of connected devices that send data across the Internet. IoT, can make life easier for all of us. The Internet of Things is now a reality due to the convergence of several technologies, including wireless communications, micro-electrical systems and of course, the Internet.

Watson is an exciting technology platform that uses natural language processing and machine learning to derive analytic conclusions from enormous sets of unstructured data. Using these techniques from the academic discipline of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Watson is a highly advanced software system designed to run on a range of IBM’s high performance computing systems.
