Watson, the dog, getting some Oprah love? It's elementary!

Oprah stopped by Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's house to dish with her future guests on Oprah's Next Chapter.

But the biggest star of the group was the pooch!

Watson charmed the talk show host so much that Oprah had to squeeze in a hug with him.

With David's help of course!

Oprah has five dogs of her own so it was easy to see that she's a HUGE dog lover!

We can't wait to see NPH and David's episode!

Jeopardy-Winning Computer May Branch Out Into Giving Medical Advice

Jeopardy-Winning Computer May Branch Out Into Giving Medical Advice

The robot that kicked ass on Jeopardy may soon be giving you medical advice!

Experts at IBM say that Watson’s ability to understand and process plain language and computer-sized database of knowledge make it a potential tool for doctors to more efficiently diagnose patients.

IBM says it’s at least two years away from marketing Watson as a medical device, but that it could be extremely useful to doctors when it becomes available.

Said Dr. Herbert Chase, a Columbia University medical school professor:

"For at least 30 years it's been clear that it's not possible for us to know everything. Every day, doctors have questions they can't find the answers to. Even if you sit down at a search engine, it's so labor intensive and it takes so long to find answers."

Watson could help solve this problem of doctors not having enough information at their fingertips.

By, Jove, Watson! I think you’ve done it! LOL!

Man Vs. Machine: Jeopardy! Edition!

jeopardy-contestants-to-compete-against-supercomputer

Oh, man. This is some I, Robot shit right here!!

According to reports, an IBM has teamed up with the show Jeopardy! to see if their supercomputer, called Watson, can beat two of the best contestants the game has ever seen!

In three episodes, scheduled to air February 14th-16th of 2011, Watson will compete against Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter.

If the computer wins, all of its earnings will go to charity. If either of the actual people do, they will donate half of their prize.

According to IBM:

"The game's clues involve analyzing subtle meaning, irony, riddles, and other complexities in which humans excel and computers traditionally do not."

This is so crazy! Something about a computer being possibly this smart makes us very uncomfortable!

Regardless, it's still going to be SUPER inneresting to see what happens!

We'll DEFINITELY be tuning in!

Thoughts??
