Watson

I visited yesterday a presentation about IBM’s Watson. This was the system that won Jeopardy! It was interesting to hear about how IBM is going about commercialization of this technology e.g. in the healthcare industry. Another observation is that IBM is capable to populate the product team with 100-200 people. That is way larger than many OR product and project teams combined.
