IBM’s Watson Heading to Rensselaer Polytechnic | News & Opinion | PCMag.com

IBM announced today that it will provide a modified version of its Watson computer to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), the first time it has gifted a university with a Watson system.

Ideally, students at RPI will find new uses for Watson, which is currently best known for its stint on Jeopardy. The system is unique in that it can “understand” nuances in human language, and is currently being used in fields like healthcare and finance.
