Watson is an artificial intelligence supercomputer that’s capable of answering questions posed to it by the human tongue. As a test of its ability, the computer squared off against former Jeopardy! champions Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings in February. It was a massacre, with Watson ending up $35,734 to Rutter’s $10,400, and Jennings’ $4,800. IBM’s DeepQA project, the team who designed Watson told The Daily Beast, “The first industry we will provide the Watson technology to is to the healthcare industry, to help physicians improve patient care.” They added that Watson would be used to improve energy management, help insurance agents understand coverage policies, and help with people’s travel planning.
