IBM`s Watson Supercomputer Goes to Work for You: 11 Personal Apps

 
 
 
Jeopardy! Man vs. Machine. Machine won. Now that IBM supercomputer Watson has bested the quiz show’s two most famous human champions, we wondered, what else could the fancy circuitry do? To achieve its victory, Watson was fed by researchers some 200 million pages of text – about 1 million books worth – ranging from encyclopedias to movie scripts to newspapers to children’s book abstracts. Beyond its ability to store all that data, Watson is able to mine it in order to formulate contextual relationships. Puns and wordplay? No problem. Obscure trivia? Combining random facts? Elementary, my dear….er, well, you know who (or what). IBM says Watson’s Deep Q&A technology could be applied in diverse fields such as health care, legal, education and government. So, assuming you could afford the hardware and information resources, imagine if you had your own personal Watson to help make you healthy, fabulously wealthy, well-dressed, well-adjusted, a great conversationalist at parties and perhaps even happy.
