Watson, which beat expert “Jeopardy” quiz show contestants in 2011, is an artificial intelligence super computer system named after legendary International Business Machines President Thomas Watson.
Using natural language capabilities and analytics, Watson processes information akin to how people think, allowing it to quickly analyze and interpret large amounts of data.
IBM said it has shrunk Watson to the size of three stacked pizza boxes from its original size of a master bedroom.
Coming to NYC, IBM’s Watson. Very cool.
