This is the direction of the future. Useful AI that can do the research of a thoudand men instantly. It's definitely worth noting that Watson is capable of learning (a point I didn't touch on in this video), so what you see here is the "baby phase" so to speak. I tried to leave out the technical jargon in this video but for those who want to know more, a wiki dump on Watson is below:

According to John Rennie, Watson can process 500 gigabytes, the equivalent of a million books, per second.

Software
Watson uses IBM's DeepQA software and the Apache UIMA (Unstructured Information Management Architecture) framework.

Hardware
The system is workload optimized, integrating massively parallel POWER7 processors and being built on IBM's DeepQA technology, which it uses to generate hypotheses, gather massive evidence, and analyze data. Watson is composed of a cluster of ninety IBM Power 750 servers, each of which uses a 3.5 GHz POWER7 eight core processor, with four threads per core. In total, the system has 2,880 POWER7 processor cores and has 16 terabytes of RAM.
