    This spring, 10 leading technology institutions in North America announced they will introduce cognitive computing courses using a cloud-based version of Watson in the fall of 2014. Co-designed by the Watson Group and leading academic experts in fields such as Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, the courses will empower students with the technical knowledge and hands-on learning required to develop new cognitive computing applications fueled by Watson’s intelligence. Students will work as a team to ingest data into Watson and train it. Ultimately, the students will break into teams and develop prototype apps and a business plan based on their Watson industry of choice.
