If you haven't seen the 60 minutes segment where Watson is highlighted, you should really check it out. I have posted the link below. Do you remember when IBM Watson competed on Jeopardy back in 2011? Watson proved that it was able to process large amounts of data to find the correct answer. Today, Watson is partnering with Universities and Hospitals to try to make a positive impact on the medical field.
Why is artificial intelligence such a hot topic? Well, some would argue that it has the potential to change the narrative for many industries. For example, it has the potential to be essential in helping to diagnose diseases and help doctors make more informed decisions. To be more specific, Watson can read million books per second. This is extremely powerful and can deliver important information faster than a human can.
Take a moment to watch!
