    A rapid reference system like Watson, even with an inference engine with associative memory features, should be a great way to get ideas, but when it comes to the application, I will go with a human every time.

    For example: given 20 unique medical symptoms Watson could probably deliver a list of 3 or 4 possible ailments. But I would like a human doctor - an experienced one, please - to make the final determination.

    Assimov projected this. I hope all of his predictions are not completely accurate.

    Its wonderful to see computers advance so much. This Jeporady tv program will be be fun to watch.

    I wish IBM would sell a version of its Chess player program and then keep updating it. I'd like to see it play as a regular in chess tournaments.

    A computer would be an accurate way to compare a champ from one era to a chess champ from another era in the future and see whose better.

    Its fun to play computer programs even though they always beat me.

    It sounds like they started this Watson computer after Jennings won so many games just to see if they could beat him. Go Ken!
