There comes a time in every young supercomputer’s life when he or she must leave the house. Having taken the world of game shows by storm and made appearances at places like Sloan-Kettering, Citigroup and the Cleveland Clinic, Watson’s ready to go to college. The advance three-year schooling will find a modified version of IBM’s computer making its way to New York State’s Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, where it will be learning lessons in English and math. Amongst the course load are plans to sharpen Watson’s cognitive skills and ability to manage data. The residency will also offer students a chance to get to work closely with one of the supercomputers that will one day rule us all.
