IBM Supercomputer Watson is Cleveland Clinic's Newest Medical Student

Cleveland Clinic plans to turn Watson, the IBM supercomputer, into a useful tool for healthcare providers, according to a Crain's Cleveland Business report.

Medical students in Cleveland Clinic's Lerner College of Medicine will interact with Watson on hypothetical cases as part of a problem-based learning curriculum.

The program will be mutually beneficial. The supercomputer will assist students by helping them navigate the latest research and suggesting various hypotheses that support potential diagnoses and treatment options, and Watson will become more adept at understanding medical language as well as how to piece together evidence to support a diagnosis, according to the report.
