Semantic technology combines Internet standards, technologies, and practices to deliver business agility and reduce time to business value. Organizations are leveraging semantic technology to develop new capabilities faster, integrate data better, and gain new insights about their customers and markets.

Cognitive systems learn as they are exposed to new data, while they engage with people (their users) to learn, understand intent, connect known data to new data, and draw conclusions.
