    I've gone over dozens of your Watson oriented videos. I've listened to 'team leaders' attempt to explain how Watson works. I've found a SERIOUS oversight in this technology. If all you ever feed this machine is DNA based data, and corporate propaganda (Drugs, Drugs, Drugs)…. Watson will never solve anything. It was 14 hours into viewing your YouTube videos when I stumbled onto the CRACK in the system. 1 billion dollars invested into this 'device' that gave an output of chemotherapy??? Are you kidding me? Let this technology be free to find its own way. This system is nonsense if all it does is process corporate propaganda. Corporate propaganda is junk science disguised as fact based. There are many substances that can aid in cancer treatment, but if Watson is never given access to that REAL SCIENCE.. what good are Watson's answers???

    IBM have an amazing product but they have no idea how to sell it to the public XD. lol if they continue that way then Apple, Samsung or Microsoft will take the control of that market of Cognitive Computing toward 2020.
