Imagine, a farmer standing in the middle of a field holding his mobile in hand and asks question, ‘What must I plant in the field?’ and he gets the appropriate reply via his handset within seconds. Answer that he’d receive would be based on location data, historical trends and scientific studies and not from any human being. This is what the researchers behind Watson 2.0 plan to achieve.

Watson 2.0 is an extension of Watson a computing system with deep analytic technology that defeated humans – Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter – on Jeopardy. Oncologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) for individualized cancer diagnostic and treatment recommendations are using the same computational wizardry. Although, the result of its execution in the field of medicine would actually surface sometime late next year.

Watson will Now Help Oncologists in Cancer Research


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.
