Submission + - IBM, Universities Talk Of Watson's Next Steps (ibtimes.com)

RedEaredSlider writes: Watson, the computer that took popular quiz show Jeopardy! by storm, is at the center of an IBM-hosted discussion on what the computer's next steps will be.

The tech giant is hosting scientists from its own company as well as students from Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh who will share ideas on what's possible with Watson's technology in fields such as medicine, law, business, computer science and engineering. IBM chose Pittsburgh for the symposium because of CMU's efforts led Eric Nyberg, professor of the Language Technologies Institute, in helping develop Watson.
