Watson-IBM

Elmo and Watson

Watson is a question answering computer system capable of answering questions posed in natural language, developed by IBM. Watson was named after IBM's first CEO and industrialist Thomas J. Watson. The computer system was specifically developed to answer questions on the quiz show Jeopardy!. In 2011, Watson competed on Jeopardy! against former winners Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings; Watson received the first place prize of $1-million.

In 2016, IBM and Sesame Workshop announced a partnership to develop personalized educational platforms for preschoolers employing IBM's Watson system.[1] In September, IBM released a commercial featuring Watson on Sesame Street conversing with Elmo, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Grover, Big Bird and several kids.
