After defeating Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings at Jeopardy!, Watson, the robot by IMB, went on to become a physicians helper. What would be the most suitable job for a robot that can quickly search trough an immense database and find the answer to a question? We do not know. But diagnosing illness and effectively becoming a physicians helper is certainly a good fit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWHG7DMLurE As shown in the video above, Watson can read and understand all medical literature and then use the data to diagnose illnesses according to the symptoms described by a patient. Of course, IBM is not willing to completely replace human physicians just yet. The main goal is to assist them and to prevent common diagnosis errors. Via Singularity Hub
