Techstination feature for Friday, May 1, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       With so many people having questions about Covid-19…IBM is helping to provide answers through what it calls Watson Assistant for Citizens.   It has been working with government agencies, healthcare organizations and more to help them provide answers using artificial intelligence using natural language.   IBM VP for Data and AI Toby Cappello…

“So what we’re bringing to the table is trusted information from sources like the CDC, marrying that with specific information for those organizations and institutions.  And we’re doing all this while providing the capability to these organizations and agencies free of charge for 90 days so it’s easy for them to address the challenge they see today in the Corona crisis…but most importantly the information requests that they’re receiving.”
