Transcript of IBM Watson Super Computer

WHAT IS WATSON? artificial computer
specializes in analyzing natural human language
provides specific answers to complex questions in 3 sec. Watson is NOT connected to internet information downloaded into memory in the form of: Watson has to dig inside his memory to access the knowledge he has gained.
