See what went into building WATSON, an advanced machine learning & natural language processing system powered by Big Data!

Do you know about Jeopardy! quiz show where a computer named Watson was able to beat world champions? No! Go watch it! Yes? Nice! Isn’t it a feat as grand as the one achieved by Deep blue (chess computer); if not less?

I am always interested in how such advanced computers was built. In case of Watson, It’s fascinating how technologies such as Natural language processing, machine learning & artificial intelligence backed by massive compute & storage power was able to beat two human world champions. And as a person interested in analytic’s and Big Data – I would classify this technology under Big Data and Advanced Data Analytics where computer analyzes lots of data to answer a question asked in a natural language. It also uses advanced machine learning algorithms. To that end, If you’re interested in getting an overview of what went into building WATSON, watch this:

If you’re as amazed as I am, considering sharing what amazed you about this technology via comment section:
