Watson's Family

I'm surprised that few people have mentioned the parallels between Watson's Jeopardy victory and Deep Blue in the chess match with Gary Kasparov some 14 years ago. Not the least of which is the fact that IBM fielded both computers. I like to see IBM doing stuff like this. Imagine the recriminations over in Mountain View: "Why didn't we do this?" Natural language search across a huge database of information...well, I guess Google will have to buy IBM now. You heard it here first.
