IBM Watson

I spent my day today at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY, hosted by Siyuan Lu (IBM). I had great discussions with the Physical Analytics team, and got in some quality time with Bruce Elmegreen (IBM), with whom I overlap on inferences about the initial mass function. I spoke about exoplanet search and population inference in my talk. The highlight of the trip was a visit to the Watson group, where I watched them talk to Watson, but we also looked into the data center, which contains the Watson that won on Jeopardy!. We made some plans to teach Watson some things about the known exoplanets; he is an expert in dealing with structured data.
