What about pattern recognition? Years ago neural nets were the great hope for identifying patterns in data which were not detected by human analysts. Perhaps Watson could help to identify patterns of crime in urban environments to enable preventative steps to be taken. It would be a fitting application honoring his namesake.
Good to see the clone version of Watson being used in different fields. Definitely applications of watson can truly revolutionize the way we deal with data because watson can process lot of data very quickly.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
