IBM's Watson Goes to School: IBM scientist, Dr. David Ferrucci, (left) coaches Will Zhang of Carnegie Mellon University and Danielle Arbogast of the University of Pittsburgh in a Jeopardy! test game against IBM's Watson computer in Pittsburgh, PA. The first Watson University Symposium assembled university students and faculty to brainstorm ways Watson technology could benefit society.

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.

Healthcare does have excellent prospects using the power of IBM’s Watson. Being able to decipher and sift through copious amounts of notes, studies and research findings just to pinpoint a potential diagnosis alone will be invaluable.
