To borrow from Hugh Gallagher’s famous take on the university admissions essay, IBM’s Watson computer has played Jeopardy with a Congressman, has offered medical advice to doctors, and has spoken with late-night TV stars. But it has not yet gone to college.

Till now, that is.

IBM announced today that it would, for the first time, be providing a modified version of a Watson system to a university: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

The system will “afford faculty and students an opportunity to find new uses for Watson and deepen the system’s cognitive capabilities,” Big Blue said in a press release.

Watson, of course, is the system that made a splash in 2011, when it crushed its human competitors on the Jeopardy game show. The system has, as IBM puts it, “a unique ability to understand the subtle nuances of human language, sift through vast amounts of data, and provide evidence-based answers to its human users’ questions.”

Since its Jeopardy triumph, Watson has been eyeballed for health-care duty — including help with diagnosing cancer — banking functions; and even telemarketing.

    Hi, I simply got some golf equipment and beginning the game of golf. However, the Large Bertha Steelhead X 14 Irons appear to become overweight for me personally. Could they be for guys or women?

  3. I understand how to create small ringlets, however i don’t enjoy how they check out me. There is a girl inside my school who wears her hair curled in Large body fat ringlets, like only five ringlets within the entire hair, maybe a bit more, also it looks thick and gorgeousss, but I am unsure how you can replicate it, because I have never witnessed it on other people. I search large ringlets on the internet, but all I recieve would be the small thin ragdoll ones. She states she curls it having a roller, but exactly how? There’s a lot hair in every ringlet, so I am unsure the way i could fit everything around the iron and get all of it heated. My current roller is rather small, 1/2 inch to at least one inch, and so i know I ought to most likely obtain a bigger one, but individuals advertise creating looser curls, and that i do eant the curls tight, Among the finest them Large. Anybody understand how? THANKS!!!!
