Every time I use my iPhone and Siri pops up, I think to myself, “Nice try, Siri, but you’re no Watson.” So you can imagine how excited I was when I heard the news that IBM has plans to make a voice-activated version of IBM Watson
on mobile devices such as cell phones, tablets, and more. Sarah Frier wrote a great Bloomberg article, ”IBM Envisions Watson as Supercharged Siri for Businesses
,” on the topic.
IBM Watson currently helps battle cancer and performs wizardry for financial institutions. Taking such power and then building voice, context-awareness and GPS capabilities into it is truly exciting! I can’t wait to see what’s to come.
