Under its hood thrummed the same engine as in our premium security products, which collect the majority of awards from independent test labs each year. And it really was free — no payment required, no third-party ads. And, no surprise, it became quite popular.

AI has gone through many cycles since we first coined the term “machine learning” in 1959. Our latest resurgence began in 2011 when we put Watson on national television to play Jeopardy! against humans. This became a cornerstone event, demonstrating that we had something unique. And we saw early success, putting Watson to work on projects with clients. This created even more excitement. That excitement led to more opportunity. At this stage, we have a large product organization, separate dedicated research organization, and an entire health organization all leveraging and building on this technology.
