Through Watson Health, it is also possible to use analytics to monitor clinical trials and gauge the effectiveness of Zika vaccines. The access to advanced analytics has played an essential role in promoting preventive and curative healthcare globally, and it has ensured that more lives are saved.

This has revolutionized the fitness at home trend that has become popular among the people who prefer to keep fit without passing through a gym or seeking professional advice.



The IBM Watson also has an impact on people's lives by ensuring that agricultural production is reliable and due precautions are taken in cases of anticipated harsh weather conditions. The IBM Watson has the ability to analyze complex weather data and predict future weather conditions. This allows the authorities to give the necessary technical advice regarding agricultural practices that can allow them to thrive in the case of changes in the weather system.



Cyberbullying is on the rise, a phenomenon attributable to the increased consumption of the internet. IBM has been in the limelight for being among the vocal participants in the fight against cyber-attacks and cyber bullying. IBM, through Watson, has made it possible for governments and multinationals to analyze large security reports and data, which enables them to improve the ability of their security personnel to improve their security analyst capabilities. This is geared towards ensuring that the detection of threats and response to avert search threats is spontaneous and quick. This is likely to reverse the rising trend of cyber-crimes cases.



IBM’s Watson group has also played a key role in transforming consultation in the education sector. The Watson Enlight planning tool allows each teacher to provide a personalized learning content to their learners paying attention to the specific needs that each student has. The tool makes it easy for teachers to understand each student's academic strengths and weaknesses and to create an individualized learning experience to learners.

IBM, through its consulting subsidiary IBM Watson, has been instrumental in the provision of a wide range of consultation services to its clients globally.
