IBM Watson Makes a Treatment Plan for Brain-Cancer Patient in 10 Minutes; Doctors Take 160 Hours – IEEE Spectrum

IBM’s Watson for Genomics took just 10 minutes to analyze a brain cancer patient’s genome and suggest a treatment plan, where human experts took 160 hours to make a comparable plan. IBM’s Watson cognitive computing platform, with its natural language processing abilities, was able to go through 23 million journal articles currently in medical literature, government listings of clinical trials, and other existing data sources without requiring someone to reformat the information and make it digestible.
