IBM’s Watson Tries to Learn…Everything
I’m terrible with names. I just read yesterday that Google glasses are starting to have face recognition. Boy, would I love it when I’m walking outside and something says, “This is who that is.” But I don’t think the computer is going to tell me what interaction I had—it might tell me, you know, you met them on such and such a date. But I’m the one who’s going to remember whether we’re friends, whether we argue, that I know his kids, what kind of a social—so I think there’s a whole bunch of things we do as humans that we sometimes forget about when we focus on the computer question-answering problem-solving type stuff. I think it will be a disruptive technology, but, again, I find with Watson it needs having something that can answer the questions. It still can’t figure out what questions to ask.
