  • 25. What is Watson? A computing system named after our founder Thomas J. Watson. Rivals a human’s ability to answer questions posed in natural language with speed, accuracy and confidence. Leverages the power of IBM Content Analytics to perform lexical analysis as part of natural language processing. Harnesses a cluster of IBM’s commercially-available POWER7 system optimized to process thousands of simultaneous tasks at rapid speeds. Incorporates a number of IBM exclusive technologies for the specialized demands of processing an enormous number of concurrent tasks and data while analyzing information in real time. This is not search, where a query retrieves a list of links to potential answers based on popularity and page ranking.Watson’s ability to understand the meaning and context of human language, andrapidly process information to find precise answers to complex questions, holdsenormous potential to transform how computers can help people accomplish tasks inbusiness and their personal lives. © 2012 IBM Corporation
