What makes information intelligent?
Accurate, objective data. Relevant content and software. Human intelligence, industry expertise and innovative technology. Intelligent information is the knowledge to act.
Across the world 15 petabytes of new data are created every day: case law reports, medical records, patent applications, regulatory information, news, video, audio and other unstructured data from myriad sources. That's eight times more information than is contained in all the libraries in the United States. Routine information technology problems like inventory management and systems automation are giving way to multi-dimensional problems of analysis like genomic pharmaceutical research or deciphering global trade patterns from foreign exchange flows.
The acceleration of technological change and the constant proliferation of new types of data create a growing need for information systems that not only help us to find and sort information, but also help us to make precise and urgent judgments about its meaning and relevance.
At Thomson Reuters we already provide vital decision-support data, vetted by experts, delivered online and accompanied by analytical tools and other software. But now we are making that information increasingly intelligent: self-describing, self-organizing and capable of both action and interaction. We are building digital platforms that enable global collaboration, real-time data exchange, dynamic modeling of user behavior and context-aware applications.
Intelligent information is self-aware: it understands what it is about, whom it is for, where it came from and what it's meant to do. It knows how to communicate these things about itself to others, whether those others are human beings or other intelligent agents.
Intelligent information isn't science fiction. For the businesses and professionals we serve, it's a necessity. we bring together human expertise, rich data and the technologies of the semantic web to deliver information you can trust. Intelligent information from Thomson Reuters - it provides the knowledge to act.
