On Sunday, May 10, 2015 Dr. Pierre Darmon, a member of the Westchester PC Users Group (WPCUG) with over 30 years in the IT industry, 25 of which were with IBM, gave a fascinating presentation about IBM’s Watson. The first in the new generation of cognitive computer systems, Watson is a learning and reasoning machine which is now being used in the healthcare, financial services and retail industries. You may have heard about IBM’s Watson when it won the Jeopardy competition in 2011. As Darmon said, “ It is thrilling how transforming the technology is and we don’t even know where it’s going”.
