Big Blue invests a billion in Watson

Written by Nick Farrell



Supercomputer gets its own unit

IBM is building a new billion dollar unit for its Watson super computer.

The team will be headed by Michael Rhodin, who was previously senior vice president of IBM's software solutions group. The unit will have about 2,000 employees and will be based in New York City. Watson processes information akin to how people think, allowing it to quickly analyze and interpret large amounts of data. The technology has been shrunk to the size of three stacked pizza boxes from its original size of a master bedroom.

Under the Watson Group, IBM will offer the technology, which is delivered over the cloud and can power new consumer and enterprise apps, to businesses and industries as well as to consumers. IBM said it decided to establish the unit because of strong demand for cognitive computing.
