IBM Watson Ushers in a New Era of Data-Driven Discoveries
[PR Newswire] - It reduces the time needed to test hypotheses and formulate conclusions that can advance their work -- from months to days and days to just hours -- bringing new levels of speed and precision to research and development. Building on Watson's ability to understand nuances in natural language, Watson Discovery Advisor can understand the language of science, such as how chemical compounds interact, making it a uniquely powerful tool for researchers in life sciences and other industries. Researchers and scientists from leading academic, pharmaceutical and other commercial research centers have begun deploying IBM's new Watson Discovery Advisor to rapidly analyze and test hypotheses using data in millions of scientific papers available in public databases. A new scientific research paper is published nearly every 30 seconds, which equals more than a million annually (Source: CiteSeerx).

IBM’s Watson Goes From Jeopardy Player to Scientist Used by J&J
[at Bloomberg] - International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) wants you to know that its Watson technology can do more than win “Jeopardy!” -- it can now help accelerate scientific research and discoveries. IBM, in a peer-reviewed paper with Baylor College of Medicine, used the Watson Discovery Advisor technology to map connections within troves of scientific research. The ability to point scientists toward new hypotheses and patterns in data is also being used by Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) to help develop medicines and find additional uses for existing drugs, IBM said in a statement. Since the “Jeopardy!” win in 2011 proved Watson can answer questions and analyze data in natural human language, IBM has been trying to commercialize the technology by showing how it can be applied to customer service and financial planning.
