Washington, Feb 1 - Tech giant IBM is hoping to make its supercomputer "Watson" a bit more well-rounded and announced it was sending a version of the supercomputer to college to take Math and English courses.
The supercomputer has beaten top human contestants on America TV game show "Jeopardy!".
"The notion here is that we want to take the Watson system and get it into the university academic world," Michael Henesey, vice president of business development for IBM Research, was quoted as saying by InformationWeek.
Watson, which is reportedly IBM's smartest computer, will attend Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in Troy, New York.
Toronto, Jan 31 - Canada's tech giant Research In Motion Ltd, now renamed just BlackBerry, has launched the much delayed BlackBerry 10 with a slew of new features and innovations.
It's been more than a year since the launch was supposed to happen, but BlackBerry took the stage in Toronto, London, Dubai, Paris, Johannesburg and New York to showcase what they've been laboring over during this period of hibernation, reported Xinhua Thursday.
They unveiled the first two phones in the series, a sleek Z10 touchscreen phone, and a Q10 that carries the iconic QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry loyalists love.
