Supercomputer Watson Will Soon Be Available To Everyone — www.theatlanticwire.com — Readability: "Two and a half years ago, in early 2011, an IBM-developed supercomputer named Watson won a Jeopardy! tournament against two human opponents. It was simultaneously fascinating (computers are cool!) and terrifying ("I, for one, welcome our new robot overlords."). Until now, however, the high-level computations performed by Watson have been kept locked away, but on Thursday, IBM will announce that it is making Watson available to companies and individual developers through the Internet."
