Last week hundreds visited the IBM booth at CeBIT to test their speed and intelligence against Watson, the advanced Q&A computer.
On hand to greet many of these contestants was one of Watson’s developers, Dr. David Gondek. Besides just meeting with fans of the project, many who posted for photos with the Watson avatar, David also took some time to meet with reporters including this TV crew from Sky News.
Check out the segment below where he shows off how Watson works and what Watson will be doing in the near future in the medical field.
One word of correction, the video refers to Watson as a supercomputer, when in fact it is based on off-the-shelf technology using IBM POWER 7 chips.
