The Art of the Possible: Transforming Healthcare with IBM Watson
IBM has taken a major step forward with partners Memorial Sloan Kettering and WellPoint in putting IBM Watson to work in healthcare. On Friday, February 8th, the team unveiled the first commercially-developed Watson-based breakthroughs. These innovations have the potential to help transform the quality and speed of care — and the entire healthcare industry — through individualized evidence-based medicine.
Cognitive systems like Watson may transform how organizations think, act, and operate in the future. Learning through interactions, they deliver evidence based responses driving better outcomes.
Putting Watson to work
Data is growing at extraordinary rates - 800 percent in the next five years and 90 percent of it is less than 2 years old. Learn how Watson combines natural language processing, machine learning, and hypothesis generation and evaluation to give you direct, confidence-based responses.

The science behind Watson
Watson understands natural language, breaking down the barrier between people and machines. The system then generates hypotheses - recognizing that there are different probabilities of various outcomes. See how Watson "learns," tracking feedback - learning from success and failure - to improve future responses.
