Imagine unleashing Watson in the physical world. Give it eyes,
ears, and touch, then let it act in that world with hands and feet
and a face, not just as an action of force but also as an action of
influence. This is embodied cognition: by placing the cognitive
power of Watson in a robot, in an avatar, an object in your hand,
or even in the walls of an operating room, conference room, or
spacecraft, we take Watson's ability to understand and reason
and draw it closer to the natural ways in which humans live and
work. In so doing, we augment individual human senses and
abilities, giving Watson the ability see a patient's complete
medical condition, feel the flow of a supply chain, or orchestrate
the tasks in a day in the life of an individual.

I need the Phillips head screwdriver.
Give me that one; no, I mean that one!
It’s good to see you again, Sandia!
I’ve just picked up a fault in the AE35 unit.
In what room was Alyssa working yesterday?
