Jct: "Doing this ends inflation of money?" is one question I'm the only person claims to have solved and I'd bet Watson cannot.

You are correct, probably. Sometimes we miss that simple answer. Thank you.

I must be too easily impressed, because this is really impressive. A milestone even. From here, it's just a few short years before Watson's kids are answering their own questions recursively from being loaded up with all manner of highly specialized, obscure, & complex research material in medical, materials science and physics, and spitting out unified field theory and transparent aluminum formulas. WOW.

You might be onto something, Ratso. Betraying your allies is the most human behavior.

Very clever Ratzo, very clever... I cracked a loud laughter. Thanks for the humor.

IBM has all sorts of plans to expand Watson's reach, using the lessons they learned in founding the Open Advancement of Question Answering (OAQA)? systems initiative. By following OAQA principles, it should be possible to house nearly any knowledge domain in a searchable format, enabling natural language queries for all sorts of applications. The only major limitation is the computing horsepower required--several seconds of supercomputer time per query--which will restrict users to those that can afford it.

Watson does not perform speech recognition, rather the clues are delivered in text form.

gatorsrule, ditto with the unimpressive premise to see who can retrive data faster. I would like to gauge how that system implemetation captures and responds to abstract concepts.

R_Colin, earlier attempts to crack a close information system using AI failed to consider the complexity of human communication (with cues and noise source in the form of modulation, accent, etc). Were the logistics described to you, I did not get the details form this piece of that competition. Is the question prefetched in the system by human? Speech or vision recognition? I wonder if a system like this would be able to capture effectively all the relevant details for an effective query. For example, in the medical case, only if the device is able to capture the essence of all relevant data, can I see that the diagnosis to be effective. My thought is the GIGO principle can limit the effectiveness of this effort in real commercial applications.

Watson a one-trick-pony? Nah, I think he'd be very competitive on "Wheel of Fortune". Admittedly, he wouldn't last long on "Survivor", unless he's programmed to betray his allies.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
