ROOM:TCC 301/302

One year ago most researchers in natural language processing did not think existing state-of-the-art techniques would be enough to successfully compete against champion Jeopardy! players. This talk will give an overview of the IBM Jeopardy! Challenge, including problem challenges, the algorithm approach, the scale out implementation and the highly iterative development process used to develop the Watson system. Future uses of the technology will also be touched on.
