It’s hard to beat IBM Watson. Both in game play and in stimulating thought about what’s next.
While students from Carnegie-Mellon University and University of Pittsburgh played a demonstration match with Watson in front of a capacity crowd for fun (final score: Watson: 52,199, Pitt: 12,937, Carnegie Mellon: 7,463), the first Watson University Symposium streamed live across the world from the People for a Smarter Planet and IBM Watson Facebook pages was more focused on how the technology could be applied to benefit society – for example, in the area of healthcare.
If you missed the live stream, you can view replays below. And if you have questions, please post them in the comment section and we’ll be happy to answer them.
