IBM Invests $1 billion to improve Watson AI program

Many of us remember IBM Watson, when it beat the human champions on the popular TV Show Jeopardy, three years ago. Since then, Watson has undergone constant improvements and has started to be used in practical real life areas, such as Medicine and Law. This is primarily due to its ability to process language, just as humans do.

Now IBM is dedicating $1 billion in order to improve Watson’s abilities even further. A team of 2,000 researchers will focus on doing just that. Among the new improvements, open source and cloud-based applications are going to be implemented. We have talked about Watson various times in our magazine, as well.
