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.

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"

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.
