The IBM Watson project is on the move.

From a Google search:

Watson is an artificially intelligent computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed in IBM’s DeepQA project by a research team led by principal investigator David Ferrucci. Watson was named after IBM’s first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson.

This month IBM has announced that the project known as ‘Watson’ will soon play a big part in all parts of industry, medicine and research.

They say it maybe two years a new kind of  software  will become a Billion dollar industry
