IBM have a supercomputer called Watson. They are teaching it to be a doctor.
This is pretty much the best thing ever to grace the pages of New Scientist. I stood in the newsagent’s and laughed at the cover line of “Doctor Watson: supercomputer turns super medic" for some time. Then I had 22ndC feels. Then I bought it.
For bonus points, Watson the supercomputer was named after IBM’s first president. His name? Thomas John Watson.
