Bits And Watson.
I am away for a few days, so I thought I would leave readers with something on Watson.
Watson is a computer system capable of answering general knowledge questions and was entered in the American quiz show, Jeopardy!
The background to Watson and what it could mean in the future is explained here.
This is a good video, where David Ferrucci provides a good overview into the topic:
Update 1: This paper is informative, Building Watson: An Overview of the DeepQA Project – AI Magazine [a PDF].
Update 2: I forgot to add that Watson is running on Linux.
