Webhose Data Powers IBM's Watson Discovery News in a New Strategic Partnership

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Jul 01, 2020 - Webhose is excited to announce that it has moved forward in a strategic partnership with IBM’s Watson Discovery. Today, users of IBM Watson Discovery can use a pre-enriched data collection of news articles. The Watson Discovery news collection is ready to query from millions of news articles around the world.
