IBM’s Watson “Auditions” in American Idol

When we look on the web at present we will observe an attractive video circulating now which features supercomputer Watson auditioning or American Idol.  The video was created by Boo Ya pictures and the song selection of Watson is wonderful; he chooses to do Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  Behind the story is Watson provides is adequate to carry tears to the eyes of the most heartless of judges.

The presentation of Watson may be auto-tuned from the beginning to end, however that’s something that appears fairly average in the pop music biz, at the present time. I’d love to observe him fight for prominence against Britney Spears, or Hitsune Miku, the Japanese hologram singing sensation that is presently selling out concerts!

Although the American Idol video is a joke, Watson is an actual supercomputer, and his skills are not anything to mock at. At the same time as Watson might gain from several singing lessons, I’m quite confident he would hold his individual when fighting Randy Jackson or J-Lo on an IQ examination.

Watson is non-natural brains software that was manufactured by IBM. It has been explained as a “workload optimized system designed for complex analytics, made possible by integrating massively parallel POWER7 processors and the IBM DeepQA software to answer Jeopardy! questions in under three seconds. Watson is made up of a cluster of ninety IBM Power 750 servers (plus additional I/O, network and cluster controller nodes in 10 racks) with a total of 2880 POWER7 processor cores and 15 Terabytes[12][13][14] of RAM. Each Power 750 server uses a 3.5 GHz POWER7 eight core processor, with four threads per core. The POWER7 processor’s massively parallel processing capability is an ideal match for Watson’s IBM DeepQA software which is embarrassingly parallel (that is a workload that executes multiple threads in parallel.”

At some point, IBM will be functioning to utilize no different technology that was utilized to make Watson in creating a product that will be used to identify, and maybe even take care of, patients.
