InfoQ: IBM and Lightbend Announce Initiative to Build New Platform for Cognitive Development
June 29, 2017
IBM has announced they will make a strategic investment in reactive pioneer and Scala language custodian, Lightbend. The two companies will collaborate on a new platform for cognitive development. Cognitive use cases, (such as customer support bots), are on a collision course with application infrastructure built to handle “Data in Motion,” a term used to describe the analysis of data while in transit, without having to store it. According to IBM:
"The resulting joint solutions will be designed to provide a complete toolchain for Java and Scala developers to easily build and deploy AI and cognitive applications in both on-premise and cloud environments."
