Whats Next For Watson Artificial Intelligence?
"IBM says the most parallel application of that in the real world is in medicine. Imagine a day when doctors can type in their patient's symptoms, and feed it into a Watson computer that can comb through literally every medical journal ever published. Watson would be able to tell what the best course of treatment is and what the most likely diagnosis is. But Watson doesn't just spit out one thing. It's able to display, in a user-friendly way, every possible diagnosis with a confidence level for each. Doctors could relay that information to their patients."
