Jeopardy and artificial intelligence fans alike might find a recent report from Outsell interesting. “IBM Watson – A Hammer in Search of Nails” addresses the progress that IBM Watson has made since its commercial launch; the market strategy and its impact in the health, financial, legal, and other sectors; and how publishers and information businesses can use IBM Watson. There are also case studies from Deakin University, Vantage Software, and OnRamp Exchange.
