Watson computing going diagnostic soon - The Boston Globe

Apparently Nuance was a big winner in this week’s Watson accomplishment

Nuance provides its technology to a variety of industries and platforms, including automated call centers, mobile phones, and auto dashboards. But the medical industry is by far its biggest sector, driven by the number of doctors who use its voice-recognition technology to dictate medical records.

Watson technology will enable Nuance to add artificial intelligence to its offerings.

Richard Mack, vice president at Nuance, said the company plans to use Watson technology to help doctors quickly consider reference materials, prior cases, and the latest medical literature.

In the future, Nuance intends to apply Watson technology to other sectors it serves.
