5 MUST-SEE EVENTS
IBM WATSON Challenge
RPI alumnus David Ferrucci, Ph.D. '94, IBM’s lead scientist on the Watson Computer project, will present a discussion on how Watson was built by a team of IBM researchers who set out to accomplish a grand challenge––build a computing system that rivals a human’s ability to answer questions posed in natural language with speed, accuracy and confidence. There will also be a trivia competition pitting Watson against teams of students and alumni. Can the computer beat the humans ... again? Join us to learn about the present and future implications of Deep QA and the other technologies behind Watson! Watch for a rebroadcast of the Jeopardy! IBM Watson Challege, Sept. 12-14!
