Re: Watson
@Ariella: How apt of you to include an Elementary reference in a discussion about Watson!  ;)

Re: Watson
Certainly other agencies, like the FBI have, but I am aware of no instance in which case the TSA has thwarted an attack.

I didn't mind basic, pre-2002 metal detectors so much (and even their efficacy has long and loudly been called into question), but what the rest of it has become is silly.

Re: Watson and AI
mpouraryan, yes, it will.  They will have to "prove" the value in the marketplace.  However, if they do, they will be in an excellent position.  I believe Cognitive Computing is evolving and will prove invaluable.

It will be fascinating to watch--The key is execution and it is yet to be realized.  Just checked on their stock--near 52 week lows.

Re: Watson
mhhf1ve, now you are talking.  Clearly they can program detection from "foreign" or unauthorized signals.  Although hackers will try to break through, you will fall into the overall security issues, with layers, etc.  But we can build protection against foreign commands.

One wonders as well whether it would require an on-site command - as I don't see us sending our cars on errands on their own?

Re: Watson and AI
mouraryan, you are so right about the challenge for IBM.  They have invested in both the technology as well as building the "brain trust" though that gives them the capability to move beyond hardware.  They are in a unique position in the market to capitalize on that and continue to unleash value from AI/Watson/Analytics - if they can keep evolving.

Re: Watson
IBM has been at the forefront with the World Technology Grid that I have participated in for about 10 years.   I would suggest that IBM understood this long before a lot of others--and has harnessed the technology.   Just like everything else, it is not perfect--but that's what makes this so much fun, right?

Re: Watson
James Bond First "began it"...didn't it?

But again the idea of it being susceptible to wrong uses is a reality--and it was underscored by the work the Death Cult (IS) is doing in Syria in testing driverless cars to use them for Bombs.

Re: Watson and AI
The transformation is already here--for instance IBM's release of the APP to leverage Watson's Technology is one example of the application of Watson to the future.   The challenge for IBM is to continue its move away from hardware.    One further good sign for IBM:  It continues to lead in Patents--which means that what t our "Virtual Guest" noted is a sign of things to come.

Re: Watson
Hi there--although we're not there--but we're making strides.    What Telsa has already been able to do is the perfect illustration.   However, "scary" to a degree is true because the question then is:  What about we humans?  What are we left to do?  Will this be our future?
