Techstination feature for Wednesday, March 17, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Did you watch the Grammy awards.     In the days leading up to the awards…music fans were able to take part in what IBM called Grammy Debates With Watson…   giving their opinions on who are the greatest artists of all time….and other topics…like the value of music education.   Kristi Kolski is program director of IBM sports and entertainment partnerships..

“If you go on social media you see debates raging all the time around music topics.   But there’s no answer.   It’s just debate, it’s just noise.   And what we like about this is, using AI we can actually get to the bottom of what fans are saying.  And we can weigh out their pro and con arguments.”
