“The opportunities are limitless,” Cerutti said told GigaOM’s Stacey Higginbotham. Watson’s cloud-based services can be layered on top of any application, but “you want to focus on important decisions where the information you have” is less than what’s available. “If a human being was able to read everything that was relevant and remember it,” Cerutti said, “would they make a better decision once in awhile? We think so. Watson can do that and sit at your side as an advisor.”
Does that mean patients will go in and see Watson instead of their doctor? No, “you’ll see your clinician,” Cerutti said. “Watson is behind the scenes and can present to the doc some options of what might be ailing you.”
