Ushering in a New Era of Computing for Healthcare

Best known for winning Jeopardy, IBM Watson represents a shift forward in the relationship between people and technology, enabling our world to make better decisions. With the unique ability to process natural language — how people actually talk to each other — Watson analyzes information from medical journals to doctor’s notes, generates and recommends hypotheses to clinicians, and learns from experience to improve how we research, teach, practice and pay for healthcare.
