In actual use we might get a situation more like HAL in the movie 2001, where they added special secret programming in the last minute: "HAL, the symptoms are difficulty breathing and wheezing when subject is under stress." HAL secret programming: possibility 1: has a cold virus possibility 2: has asthma cost to treat #1: $25 cost to treat #2: Further testing required: $1000 If asthma detected, $2000+/year HAL output: "Patient has a cold. Recommend decongestant." "Next"

Given the algorithms they developed, I would trust Watson much more than the average doctor to correctly assess my medical condition. Once tapped into the medical knowledge base, I could easily see a Watson connection in every doctors office so they could feed in the inital data and then get a list of useful tests to run to clarify the dianoses and prescribe the correct treatment. I hope the AMA embraces the capability that Watson could offer to the public in more accurate medical treatment anywhere in the world. Just a thought.
