Why is IBM’s WATSON – named WATSON? “It’s Elementary, My Dear Watson”

I was having a moment to critically think about IBM’s new Jeopardy playing supercomputer and realised some quite interesting.

Jeopardy! is an American game show featuring trivia in history, literature, the arts, pop culture, science, sports, geography, wordplay, and more. The show has a unique answer-and-question format in which contestants are presented with clues in the form of answers, and must phrase their responses in question form.

The basic function of WATSON, is to process data and generate questions. Computers usually answer questions. They take input and calculate a yes or no answer. WATSON asks questions. It has to, to be able to determine whether or not its answer is correct on the game show.

Using the story of Sherlock Holmes and his pal Watson, one could compare their combined detective prowess with the functionality of the human brain. Each Character represents a hemisphere of the brain.

In a way Holmes and Watson represent the dialectic, thesis, antithesis synthesis, also used in Plato's 'The republic'

Have you seen the MK ULTRA Holmes movie?
