Live on TED.com tomorrow: Ask IBM insiders about Watson, the Jeopardy computer

IBM’s language-savvy computer Watson has been dominating against humans on the game show Jeopardy! for the past two nights, and makes his final appearance this evening. And tomorrow, live on TED.com, IBM is hosting an insider’s conversation about Watson with Watson’s principal investigator Dr. David Ferrucci, IBM Fellow Kerrie Holley, and Columbia professor of clinical medicine Dr. Herbert Chase, hosted by Man v. Machine author Stephen Baker.
The big question: Now that Watson has succeeded on a game show, the team is digging in to develop real-world products based on this exciting technology. They’ll be asking: What’s next?
And you can ask these panelists a question too: Between now and 10am EST tomorrow, tweet your questions, and tag them #askwatson or #ibmwatson to have your tweet considered by the panel. Then watch live to see if they answer.
Tune in for the live webcast on TED.com tomorrow, Feb. 17, at 11:30am EST.
