Deloitte 2016 TMT Predictions: Cognitive Technologies to be Integrated into 80 of the Largest 100 Software Companies

NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte predicts that this year 80 of the world's 100 biggest software companies will have integrated cognitive technologies, such as machine learning, natural language processing, or speech recognition, into their products, marking a 25 percent growth from the 64 of the top 100 companies who offered cognitive technologies in 2015. The 15th edition of Technology, Media & Telecommunications (TMT) Predictions, forecasts that machine learning is likely to be the most prevalent of all cognitive computing technologies, given the breadth of its applications such as classification, anomaly detection, personalization and fraud detection. Natural language processing (NLP) will also provide valuable applications in software, dealing with unstructured text, while speech recognition will grow in use for applications that may benefit from hands-free modes of operations.

"This year, cognitive technologies will continue to capture the imagination of industry giants and startups as they explore and monetize new areas within this emerging technology landscape.
