The Watson debater
Tired of EFQM, ISO and MBNQA etc.? Want to talk about something else? I have something for you :-D
Yesterday I was at this WBS talk of a destinguished IBM engineer, who told us something about how Technology might affect us in the next couple of years.
At the moment they are doing research on a learning debate computer system, that can give you the most relevant pro and con arguments to different questions by searching the internet (at the moment only wikipedia) and filtering the most relevant data (using some algorithms and techi stuff no one of us would understand :-)) My point is, that they claim to try to improve the world with it spending millions of research budget on this system. All the other tech companies try the same think and also spend millions of money on their system. Why not work together if they really want to make the world a better place huh? For the sake of profit for sure :-) I asked this guy why and he seemed to be really astonished :-) I was actually thinking "MBE" and am still thinking, if this question was stupid or if IBM and the other tech companies could actually profit by sharing data and doing joint research. I know that IT is a really competitive place and this it why it keeps me thinking.
If someone wants to help me thinking here is the link:
