I wonder how much of it was done in assembly. Smile

Yeah ran into that on google about a week ago.... COTY WANT OWN WATSON!

To think, probably 50 years from now we will all have a Watson in our cell phones, "A system, designed for answers" yep, looks like google wont be around... and why need it when you have something that answers your question on the spot?

I'll let 'em keep Watson, I'll settle for a computer with a few POWER7 CPUs in it... That's all.

You won't be holding that cell phone very long. I bet the heat generated by something that little and that fast would burn your hand.

Current CPU heat generation is still about eight orders of magnitude over the energy required to do the computations. So there is still a lot of headroom for packing more computing power into smaller spaces.

You can, for a mere millions of dollars. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watson_(artificial_intelligence_software)#Future_uses

But there is no fasmpower7. How will you write programs for it?

I guess I'll have to wait for you to port Fasm for me.

No problem. Buy me a Power7 system to test with and I will do it for you. Deal?

I'm afraid I just don't love assembly that much. I'll just have to learn to deal with C(surely there's a C compiler for it).

Tyler, you must think outside of current technollagy and not be limited to what bounds currently hold us to what we have. I would expect that we would find a new way to embed circuits past our current CMOS methods.

I'd imagine creating a chip that could use much lower voltage would be enough.

BTW: Sony announced the next PSP launch this christmas will have a quad-core 2GHz ARM processor, A few years ago that would have probably burnt your hand...

lol, instead of simply buffering the input in a gate, they imagine a poor solutin of TWO concecutive complementary gates, it is something like really poor design.

imagine the performance of this design, when computing divisions.
means there will be a multiplication.. the guy who had this idea should be fired of his job because it is a non sense.

Watson will win the same way it did before, with speed. Even if you could use Google, you couldn't Google faster than Watson can do what it does.
