Re: OT: what is the big picture for OIL?

Snide and Snarky Remarks

I would like to apologize for snide and snarky remarks.

Not only my own (I admit that proclaiming 5th graders who identify fat people at CVS are as useful as IBM Watson's efforts to save lives..was a little snarky)..but also for other [more]

Re: IBM's healthcare moonshot

I can think of another system that doesn't require the supercomputing power of Wastson.
