Ask Watson questions online on Reddit
With the highly impressive IBM supercomputer Watson handsomely beating the human 'Jeopardy' champions in the recently televised rounds of the game, a Reddit thread now gives users a chance to ask questions online to Watson.
While the new Reddit thread - which is a part of the Reddit's popular feature called "Ask Me Anything" or AMA - encourages users to ask anything from Watson, it does not give any guarantee that Watson will respond to all the queries.
Incidentally, it will be IBM's research behind Watson which will answer the questions asked by the users, since the team has yet to work on Watson to get him to answering the questions himself.
Nonetheless, even though it will not be Watson who will actually be answering users' questions on Reddit, it still is a notable move on the part of the Watson team to open their minds to the public.
In fact, some of the excited Reddit users have already grabbed the opportunity to shoot their technical questions at the IBM research team.
These questions include "How do you go about 'teaching' Watson to derive the non-literal/idiomatic meaning from phrases like 'around the corner? Does it rely on a huge (human dictated) list of such 'rules'?" and "Could you give an example of a question (or question style) that Watson would always struggle with?"
