Many of us just know Watson as the winner of Jeopardy. “Born” in 2004, the smart machine was the successor to Deep Blue who was a chess-playing champ. But Watson isn’t all just fun and games. Its capabilities extend to sifting through huge amounts of data to diagnose diseases, make financial decisions, and much more.
Watson even has its own website, where IBM showcases case studies and tools for developers to bring Watson’s intelligence to their own ventures.
