Post-Jeopardy, Computer Watson Is Taking on Medicine

“The computer that defeated humanity’s finest Jeopardy players in February isn’t stopping at game show domination. Its creators have been busy retrofitting the computer to help doctors diagnose and treat patients.
Watson’s potential applications in healthcare have been a subject of discussion since its debut. According to American Medical News, IBM has partnerships with eight major universities to get medical data for Watson’s information base and to help find the best ways for physicians to use Watson.”
