Today on The Singularity Watch: A computer program that can scan the Internet for multiple arguments on a complicated topic, distill the various sides of the debate, and argue both sides against one another.
In this video shared by the Milken Institute, we see a demo of IBM's Watson supercomputer. In addition to being really good at Jeopardy, Watson can help you better understand an internet debate by synthesizing the issue and regurgitating pro/con arguments.
