IBM’s Watson headed to med school at Lerner College

IBM supercomputer, Watson, is headed to medical school — in Cleveland

The Plain Dealer: IBM is sending Watson, its Jeopardy!-winning supercomputer, to Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University, where it will help doctors make faster, more accurate decisions about patients’ diagnoses. “It will be there to help us make sure that we’re not missing possibilities, that we’re doing a more complete search [of the research] and presenting it in an easy-to-understand manner,” said Neil Mehta, director of education technology.
