This week, we've Watson to play with at the IIUG Conference. Andrew Ford posted a photo of it.
Yesterday, newly minted IBM Fellow, Dr. David Ferrucci gave a terrific speech at the Informix User Conference. Notice the Informix T-shirt Dr. Ferrucci wearing.
He talked about nuances of creating software for NLP that's different from database queries, google queries. The not so publicized result of Jeopardy! is, as a result of this project, IBM is leading on all the categories of NLP, like categorization, coherence, missing link analysis, etc. With Google dominating the search and text related application (e.g. translation, search phrase prediction, etc)
I know JPG recorded part of it... Hope someone has full recording and posts it somewhere. I was pretty excited to meet Dr. Ferrucci and got his autograph on the Final Jeopardy book...He signed with: "Out of Jeopardy, Finally!" :-)
On this occasion, just for fun, I've tried to see some common characteristics, differences between Watson and Informix Warehouse accelerator....See below for the comparison table.
