YOU KNOW MY METHODS, WATSON: Jeopardy proved too easy for IBM Watson. So the company has invited developers to use Watson’s API to leverage its natural language processing platform to tackle big problems. Cognotion, a startup building training and assessment tools for healthcare workers, is one of the companies doing so. TED is also tapping into Watson’s power to allow viewers to ask a question (“What is the meaning of life?”) and get a list of videos related to the query. Elise Smith, who leads IBM Waton’s education partnerships, said these queries “aren’t simply a keyword search, but takes context into consideration.) There are currently more than 100 education partners building services with Watson.
