Artificial Intelligence May Transition Decision Support to Actual Decision-Making

Thanks in great part to IBM's Watson technology and its ability to answer queries presented in natural language, artificial intelligence (AI) has received much attention in the past few years. This was especially true after Watson competed on the quiz show Jeopardy! in 2011 and won against prior champions. Watson evolved from IBM's DeepQA project and the Deep Blue chess computer that defeated chess champion Garry Kasporov in 1997.
