IBM Watson Solutions Expands Beyond Jeopardy

February 15th, 2012

From IBM’s A Smarter Planet Blog:

First, we have to transform a software program designed to do one thing, play Jeopardy!, into a service that can be used to improve the quality and efficiency of healthcare, financial servicesretail, telecommunications and many other industries. At the same time, we have to cultivate relationships with leading organizations in those industries and convince them to be our partners in developing the new applications for the technology. And, since few people have the skills necessary to create and run industry-specific services based on Watson, we have to help build an educational ecosystem that produces a deep talent pool of people with those next-generation skills.

And I hope, law too.
