Elementary, my dear Watson!

Romain Fardellone's insight:

Have you met Watson? The supercomputer developed by IBM. Watson is more than a supercomputer, though: it has learned to ask questions using ordinary language, analyse findings, and come up with the right answers in very different environments.

Watson has already beaten the best human champions in the American quiz show Jeopardy! You will find more information here by clicking on this link:

IBM has also claimed that its ability to absorb and analyse large amounts of data is better than human doctors’. In tests, Watson successfully diagnosed lung cancer in 90 percent of cases, compared with 50 percent for doctors.

So, the question, “Do you think supercomputers could help human doctors?”, might have led a famous fictional detective from Baker Street in London to remark: “Elementary, my dear Watson!”
