November 06, 2015

MIT’s Center for Digital Business held a symposium on the new book, “The Race Against the Machine: The Future of Technology and Employment” as well as the “IBM Watson Challenge,” late last year.

Among the speakers were a team from IBM Research including Vice President, Innovation, Bernard Meyerson, and David Ferrucci, the Senior Researcher who led the Watson computer and Jeopardy! challenge efforts.

Here are some excerpts from these speakers as they discuss the computer architecture, the goals and the challenges of semantic analysis and the application of the Watson technology in business and industry.
