2. Significance Analyses the huge amounts of data. Understands human language and meaning atmassive scale Generates evidence based hypothesis Learns from the responses (Extended corpus) 3. Architecture 4. HARDWARE 5. Hardware Watson is made up of a cluster of ninety IBM Power 750 servers with atotal of 2880 POWER7 processor cores and 16 Terabytes of RAM. Watson can process 500 gigabytes, the equivalent of a million books, persecond. Watsons hardware cost at about $3 million and with 80 TeraFLOPswould be placed 94th on the Top 500 Supercomputers list, and 49th inthe Top 50 Supercomputers list. The content was stored in Watsons RAM for the game because datastored on hard drives are too slow to access. 6. Software Suse linux enterprise server Apache UIMA Ibms deepQa S/w Java ,c++,prolog 7. Comparision With Human Players Watsons basic working principle is to parse keywords in a clue while searchingfor related terms as responses. This gives Watson some advantages anddisadvantages compared with humanJeopardy! players. Watson has deficiencies in understanding the contexts of the clues. As a result,human players usually generate responses faster than Watson, especially toshort clues. Watsons programming prevents it from using the popular tactic of buzzingbefore it is sure of its response. Watson has consistently better reaction time onthe buzzer once it has generated a response, and is immune to human playerspsychological tactics. 8. Future Uses The goal is to have computers start to interact in natural human terms across arange of applications and processes, understanding the questions that humansask and providing answers that humans can understand and justify. clinical decision support system to aid the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Cancer treatment. 9. Conclusion Cognitive computing, as the new field is called, takes computing concepts to awhole new level. Its not just a answering machine New technology that can interpret the content and context of human languageand analyze massive amounts of data will help. IBM Watson was developed as asophisticated question and answer system to compete on Jeopardy! But now,IBM Watson is at work in healthcare. Watson can help loan officers, portfolio managers, financial advisers, customerservice representatives and other financial services professionals do their jobsbetter. 10. AnY qUeRiEs?????
