IBM puts Watson to work on your health

IBM’s new baby, Watson, is rapidly growing up and headed for a career in health care. That was predicted in the early days when Watson was playing kid games, beating up Jeopardy! contestants. Now, it’s on. IBM Corp. Monday made a suite of announcements of its new Watson Health unit and said it is partnering with or buying several companies. Individuals may encounter the fruits of this work in the form of applications, or apps, developed by companies that connect with consumers. IBM mentioned Welltok, Modernizing Medicine, Pathway Genomics and GenieMD, which are already using Watson.
