This piece is an extension of my previous post, on artificial intelligence where I gave li’l bit info on IBM’s super computing technology output, Watson.
Oncologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) will now make use of this computational wizardry for “individualized cancer diagnostic and treatment recommendations”. It will commute the info from the center’s case studies & database.
Exploding the conventional way of disseminating the most recent therapeutic advances, Watson is hitting its first agreement with MSKCC. However, IBM had a similar partnership with Columbia University, which, somehow didn’t materialize.
